Fuel tank sorted and tested with fuel inside and it stayed there!
It is now in etch primer waiting for the next step.
We are expecting bad weather to arrive here from tomorrow for a few days with possible rain. Now that is a no no right now but I can't change that.
So in the mean time I have been playing around with the wells of the wheels. They were not blasted, I forgot about doing that area so I have been into them with a wire brush on the angle grinder and a chisel to loosen up the layers of rubber bead from old tyres and a small amount of rust near the valve stem hole which is normal. I will spray some Rust Guard on the inside of the wells to help protect them for the future.

All the wheel wells are now cleaned and painted to help prevent more rust on the inside. I used Rust Guard epoxy enamel which once dried is fairly hard stuff. Colour will have to wait as we are expecting a cold wet change to hit here over the weekend so I will have to wait until that passes.
So I have now started on being a plastic surgeon again (repairing the tinware) especially on one mud guard. It had a hit or rather it was backed into something and the damage went back further than I originally thought but in time that will be sorted as best I can.

Damn pics are still falling over. Never had this issue before and I'm still using the same phone and windows picture manager to rotate and save the image before posting.

Well yesterday was drizzle all morning then late afternoon sunshine but too late to start spraying. Today was just perfect weather for the spraying to start. So I warmed up the compressor, blew everything off and started mixing and spraying. I got the tractor skid done although in the pic there are some places still waiting to get covered. Even now all I see is RED so late today I had another look about and found a couple of small spots I missed so they can be touched up later. I started with painting the rims as I want them to harden up properly before getting the tyres fitted back on and then back onto the skid. I am pleased with the colour and the way it went on but I ended up using slightly less thinners than suggested as it was a bit too thin and runny.
Progress at last !

As flash as a rat with a gold tooth Cobba. Well done.
How many weeks until rusty iron? Is the pressure on to get David operational again?

Cheers Scott

No bloody pressure at all and there will have to be enough weeks until the RIR. That is why we are taking off to Shitme for 6 days later this week just to make it easier to get this project done.
Not only that the radiator had to be taken apart and not long after cleaning out the cores the bad news arrived and it is a right off as far as the core is concerned. So it is a re-core at a huge cost, too frightening to think about.
So to make me feel better I put his face together today. This does make me feel good!
