  1. Nearly done! Pile of bits to do is much smaller now
  2. In case anyone else tries.... It was a total fail. Cue the blowtorch, mini wire brush and the shot blaster
  3. Well did this with the rear ones...
  4. Who else is going to be there at 8 tomorrow? 😁
  5. I hope it will resemble something far from rusty junk after the amount of hours I have spent at the shotblast cabinet in the freezing cold!!!
  6. Thanks Steve. The only thing that has hollow sections are the tree sliders which were previously galvanised and have holes in them already so should be good on that front. Looking forward to it being back on the road but I have got a lot of wiring and interior to sort out first!
  7. The Land Rover part is hopeless. I am going to use the stick on type that you cut to fit yourself
  8. I have been using a mixture of flap discs/wire cup brush and electrolysis then finishing with the blaster where I can get the part in the cabinet My compressor can't keep up with the blaster so I have to alternate between methods and parts which makes progress slow
  9. I think i might have been being a bit anal about it....
  10. Ok so body on I started to think about what will hold me up getting it back on the road and realised the main thing out of my control was the galvanising and then painting/powder coating of some of the bolt on items. Cue a very dirty dusty day starting to get everything cleaned up Just how fussy are the galvanisers when it comes to specs of paint or pits of metal where it is difficult to get the rust out? The pile of bits to clean is getting smaller...
  11. Mine are a bit sturdier than those so should be fine. This type https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-Light-Guard-Set-BRITPART-Land-Rover-Defender-VIN-2A622424-STC53161-/371410722343
  12. This could be worth a try on the rear light guards.I will grab one of the small ones tonight and try it. Suppose it will make a change getting in trouble putting things in the freezer as opposed to parts to clean in the dishwasher or pistons in the oven to expand and get the gudgeon pins in!
