  1. Agreed thanks, i do sometimes think I've got too deep into this, but to be honest, i can see the end of the welding, my bigger concern will be putting everything back together correctly, that will take time and involve a lot of posting on this forum for help! If you take any more parts off make sure to take pictures and label EVERYTHING you take off with a note attached giving instruction of where it came from.
  2. Good to hear you are positive about progress. As long as you can picture the car finished you will always makes steps forward. Some will be giant steps and some will be small
  3. ::thumb:: Fabrice Your ingenuity never ceases to amaze and inspire. Anyone doing a restoration only need follow your build thread to get the answers they are looking for. :goodpost:
  4. Its been a productive day today. I got some of roof trim de-glued. What a PITA that job was. It had been baked in Arizona for 45 years. The wire brush needed plenty of elbow grease. Used a stainless steel scourer and then triple zero wire wool. Where the glue came away the zinc plating came away. The parts are ready to be zinc plated just as soon as i find a bath to accomodate the parts. I also got one of the spring plates polished up after using zinc bath. Final part to get prep for zinc bath was the plate the dash screws to double 6 dice sarfaroshi ki tamanna lyrics The 2 pieces of roof trim with jagged pieces i left till last. They are going to be a massive PITA and no doubt i am going to end up with chunks missing from my fingers by the end of the process
  5. I would wire brush thick rust off. Second pass would be stainless steel scrubbers. Third pass wire wool. Then i would use electrolysis to remove the rest of the rust. Then polishing wheel to remove pitting. Then i would either get them chrome plated by professionals or zinc plate at home and use a good polish and you would get that chrome look :D Just take a look at Fabrices thread and you will see how its done. :D Its a lot of hard work and effort but worth it if your on a budget.
