At long last my DHC body is back from the blaster. It’s looking pretty much as I expected: the only serious areas for attention are the metal floor sections and sills. I’ll also replace the short bottom channel in the hinge frames, which will be much easier with the sills off.
I could just shoot a coat of clear or two over the primer, as this is close to the colour I want…
The bulkhead area is in good shape:
…but the rear floors will need a bit of TLC.
Unfortunately, the previous (and only other) owner decided he needed a bigger glove box, which will take a bit of rectification.
There’s also an interesting cut in the toeboard visible, which I think has something to do with a clutch repair.
Time to fire up the MIG and TIG!
