I had the same idea as Al but to treat the surface rust and sell it later at a profit! Smile Smile Smile
Go for it Gordon you would be doing a lot for others as well as for yourself.

Helen Webster of Mini Mag has just finished repairing her Hornets fins in the May issue (see page 115) They were just stuffed with filler! (the nearside one in particular!) Made a nice job of it too!

I wish I had done. I should have replaced my front before doing the paint. My car's center panel is a bodged old flat steel sheet that looks like the holes were chopped out with an ax. The grills cover the holes, but just. Well, next time around, I'll do that bit first.
