I was not happy with the rear sub frame so re wire brushed & hammered off the surface rust & have given it another coat of kurust So coats of paint will now have to wait until its thoroughly dried out so i can sand it again. Still removed the rear springs & started to clean all the crap off them.

I know it don't look a lot but a lot of tapping with the chipping hammer & wire brushing has been going on today on the hubs & bits. Now given it another coat of Kurust. Remembering to give the rubbers a smearing of Valvoline so as not to damage them.

Got my rims. Thanks to Terry from modsters :handgestures-thumbup:
Also managed to get some old chrome hub caps that were still in the tissue paper :-D so they are brand new.

You got to imagine the rims finished in cream

Considering the age of the car i would have expected the near side to be a lot worse than i have found. Cut out all the rust & this is what i'm left with :dance: so i am very pleased. You can even see the original primer on the inside so she's not to bad.
