Thought I best start my thread to help me Put it back together when I've finished stripping it down and show others some of products from the buzzweld shop that I am using.

Looking at the other builds here it cant't really be called a rebuild as it's mostly paint 

This is it as purchased Dec 2012

After a couple of days I have reached,

Hopefully over the next week I can get it fully stripped and expose all the panels that need work, at the moment it just the rear floor, front and second row seat box, and top inside corners of the bulkhead, the rest looks solid. 🤞

Well that didn't work! So much for thinking that I could get it stripped over the next week!! 

Finally got back to it yesterday and got the b/c pillars off and the rear tub,IMG_2827.thumb.JPG.2cb1d21ec71a3a602e173778ba171046.JPG

I should manage a couple of hours on it again over the weekend so hopefully I'll get the bulkhead stripped down ready for removal.

So far I've had to cut off over half the bolts I think the last under seal was a bit late as it had rusted out most of the fixings. 

Still happy with its condition though just the bulkhead that's worse than expected,image.thumb.jpg.774161052a38531706de73c7282c66f2.jpg

I need to keep this moving forward before I forget where all the bolts go 🤔

Rusty bolts and things hold you up? Lizardskin would be a good product to incorporate into your rebuild there.

Why is it when you think you’re moving forward life can give you a subtle reminder that it can be messed with and really mess you about, 

coming upto Christmas in 2017 things we’re going good then I lost my father very unexpectedly after sorting out that aftermath it really knocked me for six and couldn’t really face the rebuild I left it on the back burner till I felt better, in the spring I got the chassis fully stripped and sent it off for media blasting,  at the same time it was time to get ready for a charity banger drive from Edinburgh to Rome with my £460 jaguar AWD xtype so of course it took priority and after doing the charity drive me and my friend and I managed to raise about £4500 for the brain tumour trust, the bad bit about all this was in the middle of it I lost my father in-law unexpectedly, it just doesn’t make me feel like rebuilding things if I’m honest,

however I get my chassis back this week fully blasted and coated in 2k armour ready to be filled with cavity paint and war then fully sprayed with war on the outside when I reattach the axles and new suspension! hopefully I can keep my self going and when I finally get my chassis back I can upload some freshly painted photos, it’s nice to see others that are moving forward with there builds and it all helps with the motivation the fear now is will I remember how to put it back together and did I take enough photos? He ho it is what it is and I’m sure I’ll fine what I’m looking for with dr google as my friend...
