Re: Sprint Restoration
If I had not seen the pictures I would not have believed a Sprint could still be so rust free after a year in the UK let alone after this long. Surely this car has been off the road for most of its life or is it from South Africa, or both ? Your a very lucky man Mark.
I would remove the front wings and rub down the original primer and paint it all with hamerite primer and a coat of hamerite. I made polythene gaskets to fit between the wing and body on my car to prevent rust starting and painted waxoil on both sides. That was back in the 1980`s and there`s still very little rust, although I have only done about 40,000 miles since then.
