Excellent work mate, like the others I'm impressed! You've got me looking at shed rentals now. And I have added lathing to my list of must have skills, well done sir.

Thanks. Yes a lathe is very handy for a car restauration. And the usual tools like MIG welder and so on.

Image

First layer of line seed based rust protection is hammer- tight bonded on the steel. Greyish so it converts the rust particles into iron ore. Good stuff

Furthermore led some new pipings for brake and fuel. Used for fuel 8mm LPG gas fuel line. I don't want to get the carb bowls full of rubbisch from the old fuel lines haha

Did some blasting today, and 2nd layer of rust protective paint is painted on the bottom. Another 2 layers of thicker stuff are needed for perfect black underbody finish.

And can you imagine it was like this before.

When i look at the archiving photos, it scares allmost the hell out of me. :lol:
Glad with the results now.

Filling and sanding..... The work by hand is the best, no machine flattens the surface that nice as a piece of wood and sandpaper. And checking surface is done by hand too.
Dont look @ the crappy phone pic distorsions..

Thanks Matches & Kujala !

The original hood is painted in 2009 and refreshed the artwork by thourough cleaning and clear laquering

Image

It needs about 10 patches to clear the rust on backside, frontside only 1 patch. The i have 2 hoods to swap on events and so on :)
