Most of the rusty panels on the left side have now been removed with help from the oner,Phiol. Phil ha flown in from Western Australia to see how it’s done..
the lower sections have to removed to get rid of all the rust and restore the Strength to the body.
as can be seen the jack point is rotten with rust opening holes into the cars interior .
the bottom of the wheel house wall is removed to gain access to the rust .
the rusted parts are ground off to the edge of rust free metal
measn while in the Front the rusted parts have been sought out ,the left side is qite good (apart from the sill sections)
On the Right side the booster will have to removed to get at the rust under it, leaking brake fluid has stripped off the paint and resulting moisture has attacked the steel.
the bottom of the front chassis support will need to be replaced.
In the left front guard it can be seen that the PVC undercoating covered everything,unlike lesser Finnys.
The fuel tank sender shows that it is basically shot.
Major restoration there. Are the panels for the Finnies available?
Hi, yes most of the panels are available new but we have obtained the last two W112 Lang NOS rear doors in the world. All the uder side panels ,floors etc are available but easy to make if required. Cheers!.
