Decided to get some professional help with the chassis blasting
The best £100 I've ever spent. The joy of seeing an uber-clean chassis from 1965:-) The picture above shows Trevor and Terry of Tegra Blasting based in Pluckley, Kent, UK. On inspection the chassis seems pretty good. Some of the original welds could do with a beef-up here and there and we will be using the CTM chassis strengthening kit too. So after the welding it will be ready for the chassis paint treatment. The gallery below shows the standard of blasting. It might look like it has been primed but it hasn't. This is the bare metal finish from blasting. Clicking a picture will enlarge it.
