Car is looking fantastic. The hoist is a necessity in any shed it'll fit in. Since I've had mine, my number of "mates" who pop over for a beer on the weekend has tripled...while I'm here can I use the hoist?.......

Well I've spent the last fortnight scraping off all the old underbody deadener, maybe overkill but just wanted to make sure there was no hidden surprises, pleased to say found no rust anywhere, So now thinking of spraying either POR 15 or interguard and then recoat with body deadener underneath and in wheel arches, not looking for factory look just to seal it up nicely. any recomendations or advice on products, looked at the "paint depot" and they sell an "HB" brand not sure if it's any good or not ??,  also pic shows the home made chassis connectors,

I like using the interguard 269, its used as a marine paint, so good for moisture protection.

Be very careful spraying POR 15. very bad for lungs. Would need breathing equipment. Attracted to moisture in your lungs. Get it on your skin and see how long it takes to wear away.

I have read that the prep or POR15 needs to be more thorough, So I'll look at using the interguard, just need to find who sells it in Brisbane

No safety glasses, safety guard or handle, with a helper like that you should invest in a bit more protection, or premium health insurance  :cheers:

Well one step closer,  got the underneath rubbed down, sealed up with the interguard, seam sealed and then applied the body deadener, ended up using the Colad M40, which after a week stills feels slightly tacky, Guess I'll find out soon enough whether it cures properly,  and now to drop her back on the floor and plan the next step..

Well I guess I should revive this thread, and rebuild, after being time restricted due to work commitments, but hopefully that should slow down a little and free up some spare time, so planning to get this finished this year so here's hoping, and so to update so far.

 So after painting all the stone guard guard and body deadener,  I've repainted all four wheel arches, rad support panel, firewall one roof rail and inside the trunk area ,  due to various reasons,  unpainted areas, paint came off and old weatherstrip adhesive not being removed before painting,  so that's the winge   over.

 So Now forward.
I've now got the door glass and qtr windows in, and the power windows assembly fitted, ( not wired yet)
fitted all the gutter and qtr window moulding,
fitted all the weather stripping around trunk and doors,
had a problem with the lower door seal, after fitting it Had a lot of resistance and had to shut the door very firmly, and the bottom of the door would stick out about 5mm, so pulled that off and I'll try a different brand and maybe realign the door afterwards. and to to follow up with some pics

as some of you may recall, I was playing around making my own Brake caliper etc, well that's all done along with the wheel hubs, and hats for the rear, still got to finalize the brackets yet, ended up with about 8-10mm clearance inside the front rims

Will you have trouble getting the brake system passed?

In Queensland they frown on Willwood systems!
