Part 1



Body Work




More flatting down and highbuild primer applied to the T tops and inside the bonnet, the prep to the final spray job is long and time consuming, i'll be glad when this stage is complete.








The T tops where primed with highbuild and flatted back, altho most of the inner face will be covered with the headliner, weather strip and trim, there is a strip around the edges that will be visable.





















The inside of the bonnet was primed with highbuild and sanded back with 400grit paper, the next stage is to apply a dust coat to find the small scratches and imperfections that are not visable at the moment.
























Because there were repairs carried out on the front end and around the headlight housings i applied a heavy coat of black satin from a rattle can, flatting back with 500grit and there were no imperfections and the lines looked good.











Now the high build primer has been sanded back with 500grit the body needs a good blw down to get rid of all the dust before i re-unite teh body and chassis.


I have been looking at parkerizing the nuts, bolts and washers on the chassis to prevent rust and corrosion and prolong the life of the components, i purchased some phosphate, distilled water, mangense, stainless steel container and a camping stove and will try parkerizing for myself.
