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
