Re: Trafic leaky roof and sides 2001

Sure ...brr brass monkey weather out there.
Dark but..maybe shadows will emphasize the Horrendous damage!

I think even the sticky underbody coating may not be fully cut through.
The coating is almost the same colour as the paint.
The very centre I thought I saw black paint in the daylight.
All i need is to cover so rust doesnt start.

Sills ,often as not sills rust from the inside?..if the inside coating cracked ,ts on me

3rd pic hey is that a car or a fresh mackerel

It's an awkward angle, but if its so low down, I'd apply some hammerite, then spray the body colour over it, once it's dry.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
