Did a bit more this morning but it's bloody freezing......

Arch had been bare metalled and had sat for a week. Luckily, I'd kept it dry. Bought some Kurust (sp?) treatment stuff and slapped that on this morning.......you can see the black patches where it's done it's thing on the surface rust...



Left it to dry with a fan heater stuffed into the arch....then got busy with some anti rust primer....all about the prep really and stuff used to keep it rust free long term.....That's now attempting to dry....so cold it didn't even want to spray properly....

So, it warmed up a bit yesterday afternoon and the wind died down so got out and did a bit more.

2nd coat of normal primer on over the top of the anti rust stuff. That's gonna get wet flatted and painted this morning.

Also took off the heat shield for the exhaust. In a bit of a state with a lot of surface rust under the paint. Started stripping it back but ran out of light....

Arch flatted and painted. Again, not bad for a rattle can finish..... Pleased with it. Not fussed about the overspray as the beam will be coming off for the same treatment....

So, got the heat shield stripped which was a dusty, rusty, noisy affair but it's done...



Generously applied Kurus going blue and purple doing its thing.......



A Sunday dinner appointment at my parents means I'm stopping here......hopefully get it primered with some anti rust zinc primer tonight.....

Thought I'd best work off some dinner calories....

2 coats of anti rust primer, 2 of normal primer. That's not drying overnight. Will pick up some silver paint on the way home from work tomorrow and wet flat then paint tomorrow night I think.....gets me out of the house....



One little part has reacted, not sure why. I'll resolve that tomorrow too.



The big decision bit comes next.....I want to do the entire underside in the same fashion...strip to bare metal, prepare and protect and then paint Cherry red. But I'm also thinking it's gonna be easier on a roll over jig but that means the engine needs to come out. I wanted to do the engine bay anyway so I might go down this route.

It's a lot of work but I think the end results would be worth it.

I wanted to do the same, but did it lying under the car, and did the engine bay bits I could reach, deferring engine removal for now. All credit to you if you go all the way!

There are some pics in my project thread...

These phrases are very familiar:

Next, was try to remove the arch liners, which are secured with those gay torx head screws through the side skirts.....this bolt didn't want to play and the head rounded as soon as I got near it.....Not enough room to drill it, so had to get a hacksaw blade in. What a pain in the ****....

Rear bumper off, not before one of the bolts sheared....



I too was inspired by Coskev, his is a great thread.

Exhaust heat shield flatted and painted.....doesn't look much different to the primer in the pics!!





Not sure how much else I can do right now...need to get some more knot brushes for the grinder.....Halfords want £19 for a set of 3!!!!!! Will go to the local hardware shop tomorrow......

Doesn't look much different but I know it's protected now!!!

OK, ordered some new wire brushes as I'd worn out the one I was using!!

Picked them up along with my new goggles this morning from the post office...



Anyhow, progress is slow. This stone chip stuff is awful. Some bits are dry and hard and it splinters off, some bits are still soft underneath. Its going to take forever to get it stripped.....



Glad I'm doing it though. Found some surface rust under the underseal in the rear o/s corner. No big issue as its only surface but had I left it as it was.....



Put one of the wire wheels on.....grinder snagged and jumped and bit me..... Ho him...



Then I noticed my work light thing was smoking......thinking oh **** I looked at it and all the bits of this underseal that had fallen onto the glass were burning....



So had to take out the glass, take it inside and really scrub it.....joy.

I'm out this afternoon to the football then out with some mates I've not seen in ages so stopped. Need another bloody shower... Not a happy grinder face.....

I remember seeing a couple of thousand yard stare photos like that on here after people have spent some hours under the car, Rich306 was one.

Great work though. I had a good look under mine today and it is still perfect after 2 years, so all the effort is worth it.

Mik, thanks bud. Need the encouragement at the minute

You know when you wish you'd never started something??

This stone chip is an absolute horror. Removal is just awful. The wire brush attachments on the grinder make reasonably short work of it. However, given their size, they are good for large open areas, no good for high corners etc, even when you apply some pressure to get it in there. So I've a wire brush attachment in my drill but it's not fast enough. It seems to warm the stone chip up then just smear it around. Eventually it removes it but takes ages and leaves a residue. Bloody awful stuff. This is going to take a while. I've found for some of the hard to reach with a grinder bits, a flat blade screwdriver brings off the underseal type stuff very well which is a result..

So the underside looks like this....



That's everything this side of that chassis cross member you can see...


A non structural part of the chassis, it's just a bracket that the bumper bolts too. I'll clean that up and Kurust it. Not worth replacing the part. Picture also demonstrates the tight corners I need to get into. This pics shows it too.



Rapidly getting the **** with it. Continually having to stop and clean the lenses of my goggle, despite trying to angle it so the bits don't get anywhere near me, they still do. Work light lenses is a state again.

Today, I managed to get her up onto axle stands all round, giving me enough room to work underneath.

Right, fuel tank finally out, not without a fight though.

Sheared a mounting stud as it was rusted solid. That's going to be an arse to resolve.....one of the tank straps has a guide for the handbrake cable. Looks like a non Peugeot cable and it's a little too big for the guide and snapped the mounting channel off the tank strap. Looks like it was pretty rusty anyway......No biggy, I can get another of those easily enough.

Generally pretty clean in the tank area. But of surface rust where the tank sits against the body but nothing major. Little scabby one side but will clean up ok. Nothing major or anything requiring any welding....





Slightly scabby side



Sheared mounting stud



Tank rub marks

Good work mate. Wish I'd gotten around to sorting out the underside of my mine this winter. Oh well there's always next year.

Thanks Tom.

It's prooving to be a real swine of a job. The underseal is awful stuff to remove. It's going to take quite a while I think.

The beam will hopefully be off this week as well, so I can really get going. The sheared stud for one of the fuel tank straps has really p**sed me off as its gonna be a royal Pita to sort. On top of all that as well, the entire rear part of the chassis, forward of the fuel tank, seems to have had about 3 tonnes of seam sealant slapped all over the place........

You know when you look at something and think 'I wish I'd never started this'.....

I know all about that. Had the same feeling when I started fiddling with my electrics! When are you hoping to have it back on the road?

Tom, no idea. There is no rush for it really and I can see me getting properly carried away.

The underseal is horrible though. Forgot to wear my hat today and it took me 3 attempts at washing my hair in the shower to get clean......

Possibly by the summer I'd like to be back on the road in it
