I'm cleaning it all up, then hammeriting it in white. I was going to use red oxide primer, then spray it, but I can't be arsed. Hammerite'll do the job.

Some pics then.

The general state of the place….

I started investigating the bottom of the B pillar (Common rust spot on the coupe's, as the sunroof seems to drain there!). Looks awful (crap pic, sorry!) but I've cut it back, and it's an easy repair.

A view from the front. you can see the box section chassis leg replacements. I'm now contemplating spaceframing the front end…..

Slapped some paint on the clean bits. I started with primer (the red stuff), and promptly ran out. The pinky white is white hammerite. I think I'll finish it off in white.

I also took apart the A pillar and sill at the front, and Wow! What a bad design. The A pillar is a big rust trap, and doesn't even connect to the chassis leg! Time for a redesign….. I'll take some pics of that next time around!
