It's a bright idea of re structuring the chassis by the 'U' shaped tubular support, Shyam have through look for weak places or to be weak points in future, are you also getting the 'U' shaped tubes welded on the top aswell and would you be getting electrically welded or would it be a spot welding?

By the time the chassis is getting/will be done are you thinking about something else for the car to get done like the seats, engine etc.

I am clueless of what happened to the cars which used to be parked besides SBH bank opp to Chermas garments, I doubt they must have ended at the scrap yard I am praying you should get a healthy chassis but the scrap yard market is so fast "if sold fine if not they scrap it". If not the cars atleast the chassis would get a good caretaker.

Sorry friends, you will have to be patient for a while! My net connection at home has conked out once again, and I'm at the end of my patience with this lousy service!

I have decided to switch to what I've heard of as a better connection, it will take some time until I'm online regularly again! (Right now typing from a net cafe in our society, so cant upload pics. etc here in this system)

So just do be patient in the meanwhile! As Arny Schwarzenegger says, A'll be baaakkk!!

Default Arny strikes baakkk!!

OK, so out with a brief but significant update this time!

The work had momentarily been stopped with the garage guys being busy with other cars.

The new metal sections for the outriggers had been cut out and shaped to fit the rear outriggers.

It turns out that the old sections that were rusted are not going to cut off afterall, only the area surrounding the corrosion is, and the new metal sections are welded on, overlapping the existing frame.

More as work progresses.

Hi Stanher,

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Won't adding extra sheet over the chassis bars change the thickness of the bars. Won't it create problems when the other parts are assembled?

I did have the same doubt in my mind, but the garage guys say they refrain from cutting off the entire old rails and welding on complete new rails directly, as it'll tend to distort the overall alignment of the rails. Anyways, let me clarify from them again.

I don't think so, here strengthening the place where the corrossion has taken place and its just few MM sheet which is welded on it should not make much difference.

Yes it would make difference in the overall weight of the car. Shyam you are making her Standard Schwarzenegger in terms of strength. I guess RC book needs a correction in regards to the unladen weight..He he he "Solid Build hai Bhai" (Just kidding) all the best.

thanks to you i am learning a lot about the internal structure of the herald. very useful info besides being interesting. resto threads are my favourite kind on tbhp. btw did u chek out tonrag's thread on the chevy fleetmasters resto???very interesting stuff

and btw i dont see how sandblasting is expensive. you can buy the gun hook it up to a compressor and do the sandblasting yourself.i dont think industrial level sand blasting equipment would be required. i bought this equipment myself and used it on my bikes engine housing before painting it. i had bought a compressor and a spray gun 4-5 years ago to paint my fiat. i just bought the sandblasting gun for another 500, some sand and a n 95 mask (respiratory protection is very important unless you want silicosis and wanna go in for a lung transplant) and i was ready to go.

since you cant use sodium hydroxide on aluminium for removing paint , this was the only option and lemme tell you its effective, and the finish of the surface is very uniform. try it out.

http://www.secondchancegarage.com/pu...cover-redo.cfm this is the link to the page which gave me the idea of sandblasting. my gun looks very different though

Thanks! Yes, of course I had viewed tonrag's chevy thread! Very commendable job he did with the few resources he had.

I guess DIY is a good option. But since jai wasnt keen on sandblasting anyways, I dropped the idea. 'might be worth trying on my other project!
But I do intend to use ortho-phosphoric acid, which turns rust black on applying, as done by another team bhpian, albeit on an SS80:

Hi Shyam

Work seems to be going well. One thing i wanted to ask is that did you guys treat the chassis before starting the welding of the sheet on top of it?Incase you do not then the corrosion will still continue to happen under the sheet you are welding now and you will have a flase sense of security that all is well.

Thanks Indrojit- as for treating the chassis, I did suggest using caustic soda and (ortho) phosphoric acid to apply on the chassis before the patchwork but the garage guys say if we apply any of that and it enters into the inside of the chassis rails, it would tend to eat into the insides etc.!
I still feel ortho phos. wouldnt harm the metal and would only eat away the rust. I still intend to treat the whole chassis once finished with it, with it before they coat it with even primer etc.

Not a problem sir . I think it should be done now at this stage before the metal sheet being welded on.I am sure there are some more ways to treat the chassis. Why don't you look at those and even i will try and find out for you. But till then i would say put a hault on the current patch work.Later you don't want trouble with a thing like the chassis once every thing is done. The corrosion has to be stopped on the chassis before!

Its just my point of view on this.
