  1. And a couple of further small questions: 1 - I'm definitely up for the Jotomastic, In terms of coverage for my 90 chassis, how much (in litres) am I likely to need to buy? (I will probably do this over a few nights in small batches and will order this week). 2 - And if I use a smooth radiator roller, is it possible to get a reasonable finish on the outside of the rear cross member of my "Driveway Queen"? πŸ˜„ Thanks again.πŸ‘ GrantπŸ™‚
  2. Thanks CackShifter, do you think Jotamastic could be applied with a small roller (radiator roller)? I take it its quite "sticky" when applied? Thanks again everyone! πŸ‘
  3. Hi All, When I built my 90 on a new chassis circa 9 years ago I don't recall being aware of T-Washing and painting at the time much to my chagrine. IIRC I was more concerned with someone seeing a nice shiny chassis and pinching my pride and joy and just needed it covered up!πŸ™‚ However, I gave it a lick of underseal at the time and thought that would suffice. However, I noticed it isn't looking very well covered anymore and I've been under tonight and scraped off any loose stuff and wire brushed it and its really obvious it does need some protection. So a couple of questions: Q1: Has anyone ever fitted a galv chassis before and never painted it? Have they ever had any problems with the Galv wearing through and had the bare metal exposed? Just wondering what the worst case would be if hypothetically a galv chassis was left unprotected? Q2: I want to give the chassis a good covering, what works well on "old" galv that will give it some good protection (I will need to put it on by hand obviously) and it will also stick like the proverbial to a blanket? Would there be any issue with applying Hammerite Under Body Seal with added Waxoyl? Or is there a more recommended "tough" coating that can be used that will stay on well over time. Any advice would be appreciated. All the best Grant
  4. Hi All, Just reviving this thread a little. I fitted a galv chassis close on 10 years ago and wasn't aware of twash etc at the time and thought a coat of underseal would suffice. I know (shaking head) but I didn't "know" at the time until it was too late and had applied it........🀐 I have noticed a few bare patches now and would like to give the chassis another coat of something that will cover it and do me longer this time. Any options out there that you would recommend as a good covering for the exposed galv and also go ontop of the underseal? Thanks in advance. G πŸ™‚
  5. Thanks Ralph, They weren't overly expensive so will give them a try. πŸ‘ All the best Grant πŸ™‚
  6. Hi All, I bought a cheap pair of Britpart replacement Shocks for my 90 from Paddocks and received a pair of RTC4639 - Shock Absorber 110 Rear Standard. https://www.paddockspares.com/catalog/category/view/s/rear/id/6380/?product_list_order=price When I phoned up the guy at paddocks stating that they were for a 110 he took my reg (C reg) and looking it up he said they were listed as for a 110 and 90. I had a quick look through an old PDF and the part number is RTC4636 for 90 and RTC4639 for 110. The big question is are the 90 and 110 shocks generic enough to be the same and not to notice any ride difference? I had thought the 110 would be super firm given the potential difference in load carrying capacity? Your knowledge and experience please? All the best G

  8. Hi James, get a 4wd transit and straddle the gap! πŸ™‚ Cheers G
