The area around the fender skirts is always a trap for moisture

I will clean up the fender skirts as well and protect them properly.

I have now set up a system where I can spray rust remover liquid onto the rusty parts permanently. I´m using a recirculating pump to spray on the rust remover. I can let it run for days until all the surface rust is gone. The advantage is that the liquid can now get everywhere and should remove the last little piece of rust.

paintshop-BG-_MG_8769.jpg

In the paintshop. The lower edge behind the rear wheels had suffered a bit over the last 41 years... I decided to have it fixed properly and sacrifice a little of the original paint for this „frown“-Emoticon Also the area around the fender skirts needed a little attention to look like new again. No real severe rust issue, but more of a preventive and cosmetic measure... Fenderskirts will be repainted as well... These areas are now in primer and filler and will be painted soon

I forgot some of the fasteners for the rubber splash guards in the rust dissolver solution. It ate away the zinc plating. So I had to remove the remains of the zinc plating with a wire brush.
