Heat gun 12 December 2009

Lots more rust and underseal flakes have gone down my arms and neck over the past month. I have now removed the majority of the underseal from the axle area, that is all that I could chip off with a putty knife with a bit of help from a heat gun now and then. I made a start on removing the rust with an angle grinder fitted with a cup shaped wire brush. I am going to need to buy some more different shaped brushes for this as there are a lot of tricky areas that I can’t reach at the moment. Most of the rust is just light surface rust but there are some areas such as the top spring mounts that are quite heavily corroded and of course they are a complicated shape and are going to be the hardest to remove the rust from. Nothing seems to need welding up though which is good news.
