Managed to move the floorpan onto the decking...






And so began two and a half days of scraping.

Looks good. I'm a fan of hydrate 80, seems to perform well. Particularly where blasting is not an option.

Cheers guys

So, the day after my last post was my birthday, which means I get to play with the car and not get told off.

I decided to start painting the zinc primer, what I didn't consider was that it was the end of March, springtime, so I should have realised it would fucking snow

I managed to get a cover on it but not quick enough, still got away lightly though, only a small section affected.

After a couple of days sulking, I stripped that part and started again...







I'll leave that for a week now before I paint with epoxy and then stonechip.
