Re: Sud restoration
It would, going up in a couple of weeks to check the damage to the Turbo Sud, and hopefully to see some progress on the engine front. Back to the shell restoration though, All underneath I cleaned off all the old underseal were I had not repaired yesterday. Seam sealed my repairs and the original joints. I have also applied 6 litres of Tetrosyl to the underside using a Schutz gun.
Looks well protected now, my question is, I have not applied anything to the inner rear arches yet, because I need to fabricate two small close out panels at the end of the sills, I have left them open for you so I can get a good dose of something in the sills. In the past I have used waxoyl in these box section areas, and my method has always been to bung up any drain holes, warm up (in Hot Water) the Waxoyl and really over do it. Then pull the bungs out. On the Turbo Sud above it would drip Waxoyl on a hot day! Trouble is, in the end it didn't seem to do it any good (check out the pictures above)
Anyone have experience of a different product or method?
I need to be careful because I am doing this before the paint goes on, because I want better access to the interior of these panels this time, so whatever I do must not cause paint reactions or spray silicone everywhere!
