Progress by Keith (May 15th, 2008)
If anyone is actually reading this then I have been progressing quite well, just not updating the journal.
Almost done the underside welding and at the cleaning off the odd bits of surface rust and old underseal / paint.
Unfortunately located another lacy bit on the rear wheel arch so will have to cut and insert a section.
For cleaning off the the welds / underseal / paint I've been scraping with an old paint scraper, then using the wire brush on the angle grinder. The flat version is better than the cup for all the corners.
The intention is to clean off loose bits and welds and prime with spray can etch primer. Then use the Gravitex stonechip to underseal. The Gravitex is supposed to be able to cover anything and also be overpainted. The old underseal is oil based stuff and goes soft with the Gravitex which is cellulose based. On my test area it didn't react and went hard again after a week. Hopefully a larger area will do the same - we shall see
