Lil Red - SJ restoration - The Rust!!
Here is a gallery of some close up details on the rust. Winchfield Engineering have been cleaning out each rust spot back to bare metal ready for preparation.
The lips of the drain holes are corroded which had been hidden underneath the rubber bungs. The plan is to make small die-cut inserts to re-make the bung hole. The alternative would have been to replace the floor panel but the feeling is that a simple insert will be ok for this.
On the left is the inner wing panel which is revealled when the main front wing is removed. Normally this is an enclosed section so this part is hidden. This should clean up ok.
