As you can see I had a big ugly bog blister on my bonnet. I chemically stripped the underside masking off the seam to stop any stripper getting in and causing problems later so I had to finish off the hard way. The top side I used a 3M stripper wheel The whole bonnet was cover with a large amount of bog. When I got it all off the surface felt pretty good and sit was rust free.

After completing the surface prep it was ready to lock away with primer and paint the underside. The top surface needs a little work but shouldn't need as much bog as what was on there before. I was really happy with the colour, it feels like I'm getting some where now.

thanks Gav each piece that gets done gives me a bigger smile.
I stripped the door the same way that I did the bonnet. The doors were in fairly good nick just some cracks and rust in the inner corners. I didn't take any pictures of the rust holes on the door , it was just a matter of welding and grinding back with a flapper disc, they came up good so I was happy to get them in undercoat to keep the surface rust off.

The skin on my hands and fingers is growing back. The result was worth the effort to clean it all up.

Thanks for the encouragement dat240z. As you can see the front guard has rust in the usual spot. I used part of a rust repair panel  to fix it up and just made the mount for the inside and welded her in.

I've got the same rust spot on the same side of my car.

With regard to the rust repair panel, what was the reason for just doing the patch repair? I was thinking of just cutting the bottom part of the fender off (where your paint line is in the photos) and just doing a butt weld along that line - joining the rust repair section to the rest of the fender. I guess what I am asking is, was there a specific reason for your approach?

Hi Gav... The reason for doing it that way was to keep the lines for the wheel arch and the rear edge to door gap consistent. I have very limited skills so I went that way. I only removed what was rusted. Some of the more talented body guys on this forum would be the best to ask for advice as I just look at what they do and "try" to copy. But because of the way the skin folds on to the inner part of the guard I knew I would be unable to replicate this to a standard that I would be happy with.

Fair enough mate, 'limited skills' is what I can relate to.

Thanks mossy. I can still remeber quite well seeing your car nearly ready for final paint when I was with Jeff picking up the 240 shell. We got the primer on and put on all the heat lamps that I had to bake it off. Even with the low shine primer I can see the areas that will need some work but it is good to have the whole car locked away now and I can put the welder away for awhile. Time to bog and sand.

I have now turned my attention the rear hatch. I chemically stripped and was happy to find only a couple of areas that had light surface corrosion.
