Demoralising though it may be to discover copious amount of rust spots that the previous owner lied about, it is an inevitability in of car restoration. My previous cheap drill had died during my last effort at the task at hand and not wanting to leave it sitting in gloom and doom, (due to being low on cash) today I decided that I’d buy a replacement cheap piece of crap drill to continue my effort of wire brushing all the paint and rust off the surface of my C110. ($19.97, cheers Mitre 10 Mega)
Firstly I’ll show where I left off last time. After the drill gave up and on the first decent sunny day, I rolled the car outside the garage and started to pull the interior out so I could get to some holes from the inside (Doesn’t sound good does it? It’s not… trust me.)
It’s a little hard to see (even when you click the image for a slightly larger version. You’ll have to take my word for it when I say that there’s holes along the hip line, down the bottom of the quarters, at the bottom of the doors, along the guttering and across the top of the windscreen. Thank-fully (as shown previous) the holes in the sills are minimal, far less than I expected.
