Re: Soda blasting or acid dipping

Wasn’t saying blasting is unsuitable, just pointing out the differences, Glass is probably the most common method used now, but Soda has become the “in” word, and some companies will charge soda prices and use glass, (which is much cheaper) if you do present a vehicle for any sort of blasting other ...

Re: Soda blasting or acid dipping

SPL are probably the best know company for acid dipping, although there is probably others out there, they can quote you and explain much more about it than I can, You say soda blasting, you will find a lot of companies use the word "soda" some in their blurb, some even in the company name, but most...

Re: Textured paint for heater

VHT make a wrinkle finish paint in an aerosol, It works well if you do it as per the instructions, it's available from eBay and countless other online and physical suppliers, The only thing I found is if you go to use the can again in months to come it's no use, it appears to loose it's wrinkles, oh...

Finally,, I've had these few parts made for some weeks now but just not had time to post the pics up, I have folded up a pair of new chassis legs, these are similar to original minor legs but don’t have the pinches around the front lower arm mount or the kick up at the back where they will meet the ...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Yes always enjoy a challenge, to me the challenge is more about rebuilding it to high standard and building something that works correctly and drives well, I don’t want to just cobble it back together, and I don’t want it to look like Frankenstein underneath when I’m finished, No cant Platt fog, but...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Yes it is indeed "a bit of a rot box" But it's a bit of a rot box that now has two new custom chassis legs. New custom bay floors. A new slim front cross member and the start of a one off center cross member. I'll take some pics of my endeavours next week and post them up. There's not much to look a...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

So now we move slightly rearwards, to the rear seat box, now this has been completely covered along its front face with full width and height repair sections, but when I looked inside the box all the rotten steel is still inside and shows no sign of rust proofing/waxoyling. Gotta love a specialist.....

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

So now the moment you have all been waiting for,,, or perhaps not,, First picture shows the dash, floor and chassis legs, or at least what’s left of them, OS leg is the worst, but both are rotten, still the dash is in great condition, so thats gotta be a bonus. Second pic shows the bulkhead and a ve...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Hi all, Well I did say it would be a slow build, lol and work got in the way in the last few weeks, but here’s a little update, Now there comes a time when you have to be realistic (and apparently adult) and admit that the shell you have is so rotten that there’s really not much to work with and tha...
