The chassis is prepped, de-rusted, and ready for the next stage, being the replacement of at least 2 if not all the cross members, one at a time.
The focus over the last week has been on the side rails, which have been wire brushed and "rust busted" to within an inch of their lives.
I am extremely happy with the result, there is a bit of pitting here and there, and a few welding repairs are required to a couple of wear spots, but overall considering the chassis is 87 years old, its not to bad.
The next stage is to fit a replacement rear cross member, then the front, and then probably replace the whole 4 cross members..
Having a perfect set from the donor chassis, which after a month in molasses came up like new, its actually an easier process to remove and replace rather than clean up, plus several rivets are loose anyway
This will also give me the piece of mind knowing there is no rust between the cross members.
