havent had much of an update for a while now, managed to get a good 4-5 hours work today, got a fair bit done. mostly the same ol' filling sanding and priming :blink: will let the piks do the talking as tere isnt overly much to say for once, so enjoy.....

decided to start on tidying te bed up a bit today. started off by sanding it all down again to get rid of small bits of filler and other random bits that had gathered over the last few weeks. as you can see in the picture the bed is a little pitted, the bed is going to have stone chip on it so i can use it for what it was deisgned for. going to use the same stonechip as i did on the drivers side sill (haven't got round to doing the passenger side yet). its smooth so wont look like normal stone chip but will give good protection. decided to get rid the of the little pitted bits by doing a light skim on all the high sections of the bed. took ages but will be worth it once its all done!

got a fair bit of work done over the week end, may not look like much but its a big step forward. managed to get the screen out with out braking it which is a bonus lol dad has now entered the build so the father son team is back in action and cracking on once again. dad started to get the engine bay ready for a slight bit of smoothing and a good clean, all the loom is removed. engine is going to have a test fir with the carbs over the week end Very Happy

anyway heres some piks from the last few days

found a couple of small holes in the bottom of the screen sill

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy190

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy191

also stripped the inside out, removed all the junk that was init already for the doors to be musked up :thumbs_up

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy193

then just the usual filler piks lol

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy194

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy195

also couldnt resist trying the wellers on my grey caddy as this one is lowered but i only took one pik but you get the idea Very Happy

project--rustowagen mk1 caddy - Page 4 Thewhitecaddy188

dad also got the passenger side door sill and post infront of it all back to bare metal, no most dirst or lil scabby bits left there now, all ready for the door to be musked up then i can get the stone chip out and the etch primer and start making some progress again.

all comments welcome again peeps...

say no to seam sealer!...the bay is going to be semi smooth and simple. all the seem sealer is going (not much left now) but need to get another wire wheel or 2. just wanted to do a bit before we put the motor in. also got rid of the expansion tank for the rad as im gooing to run a big top fill rad. also going to have a nice tidy up with te wiring once it all goes back in. may possible run the wiring for the headlights around the inside of the wing just to tidy it up a bit :td no other piks im afraid but im sure thre will be a huge pregression over the week end :thumbs_up

Very nice mate, so much better when you lose the seam sealer! Think you should get a small drycell battery and stick it under the seat. Please pretty please run your wires through the inner wing, you know you wanna lol.

Comin on well!

also got my carbs bolted in today after sorting some other clearance issues out. was nice to see them in there without getting someone to hold them up! engine is already back out and started to make some plans for the bay. by the time we sorted everything thing out didnt have much lght left so i made a bit of a start on the bay. going to concetrate in here for now and get it all in primer before we put the engine back in for another fitting for extra secret goodies :wub:

heres a couple piks from today. enjoy peeps...

Stainless open ended plenum that sucks are from the scuttle area would look immense polished up, easily pinstripped too. Make it bolt to the carbs, nice ram pipes in the carbs, cut a hole in the sctuttle big enough to allow for engine movement if you do it though.
