So Tuesday night this happened. There has been a spot here since I bought it 10 years ago but it's gotten rather manky in the last 12 months.
So left Kurust in it overnight so I could fill it with budge the following day. I'm well aware I haven't got all the rust, it's so I can use it for my wedding without having a huge hole in the side of it. I've got a man with a plan to do it with metal over the summer.
Went Halfords for some fiberglass, mesh and body filler, and had a can of 474 Glacier White mixed up to be on the safe side. I've used appliance white from halfords on the bumper and you wouldn't know the difference, but playing it safe since id have to blend it in. Anyway, stage 2, fill the hole
Nice day so filler was going off nice and quick, couple of skins of p38 brought us to painting. Left it a few days in the sun, hardened nicely. Not a perfect job by any means but unless you looked you wouldn't know. I know, and it's already bugging me, but better than the snot that was there.
Once the wedding is out of the way outer and inner will be done properly, panel is waiting but the fella is rather busy atm, so this will do short term. Only filler I've ever used on this though, and its 25 this year so not bad going.
You'd be surprised how long just using epoxy resin on rust lasts (if it were just filler it would bubble from the inside out in no time at all). Can't tell the colour difference from that pic to where it's been touched in so looks a good effort to me.
Went to a cars and coffee type meet this morning on Colwyn Bay promenade, wasnt expecting much but it was heaving, next one falls on the date of my wedding I think but will try organise something if any local members are interested? I didnt get many pics, cars were constantly in and out but been sent a few of mine some people took
Just been and had the car washed, I've done the inside, ready for taking me and the best man to my wedding on Saturday, and me and the future wife to our reception gonna give it a quick once over at the end of the week but another job ticked off what is a huge list, never getting married again
