not a zr i know

well havnt been on here in a while .

anyway im rebuilding my rover coupe

well before shot blasting i decided to remove all the underseal and seam sealer from the joins of the chassis rails so that i could stich weld down the car to stiffern the chassis up a bit and to make it a bit stronger .

so spent a few hours with a scrapper and a wire brush attachment cleaning up the areas that i was gunna weld up .

quick jet wash out side



some of the damage and rust



damage to front passenger sill



where the tyres used to rub . this will be cleaned up and welded up .



rust and damage to rear drivers sill



rust to the drivers rear quater .



all the oil and crap under the car



where some one had done a repair on the rear anti roll bar before . tempted to cut this out and re do it as it isnt straght and not the best of repairs .





removing all the seam seeler on the chassis rails .



removing all the seem sealer from the rear end



i am fitting a new tank and uprated feul pump so banged a hole in the old one to remove the old fuel






then after all the areas are exposed a light dusting of weld through primer to stop it rusting .



now on wards to remove the rear panels which i have left the body shop man to do
