1) Get rid of the rust spots
2) Spray Etching primer

5) Check undulations with Dupont Tube Patti
6) Spray Dupont paint.

So the complete bottom half is now rust proof for ever.
Hi PK, I have a similar issue with the bottom of the door areas on my Rover. Can you go into more details on each of the steps, for instance what do you mean by rust spots? A picture would be nice.

Also a brief explanation of the process of getting rid of the rust to applying the surfacer. Thanks

BTW what is the particular colour code on the variant?

Amol,

Let me give you the step by step details for attending those tiny rust spots at the door bottom and the rusts on the side running board.

In the first case, check thoroughly what kid of rusting it is, there are different levels of rusting

1) Spot Rusting
2) Rusting on the entire panel
3) Rusting due to Age

For ponts 2) & 3) the procedures are simple and common.

1) Replace the panel
2) Apply Etching primer
3) Sand it down
4) Even the surface with Tapping and using bondo
5) Sand it down
6) Spray Surfacer
7) Check spots
8) Spray paint and finish the treated surface

And for instance, if you find only tiny rust spots on the bottom door panels, if the metal is good enough, then you dont have to do extensive paint job. Go back previous pages, you will get to know what i meant by spot rusting.

1) Scrape the surface where you see rusts
2) Weld them together by using spot welding
3) Apply primer
4) Use Bondo and even out the surface
5) Sand down the surface to get a smooth finish
6) Spray 3M or equivalent Antirust coating (atleast 2 inches area) create a straight line for the entire underbody or the door panel to get the finishing like a company created antirust treatment, you can go back a page and check)
7) Let it dry overnite,
8) Sand the antirust coating a little
9) Apply primer and let it dry
10) Apply Surfacer and let it dry
11) Sand the surfacer and check for undulations and spots, treat them
12) Spray the base coat and let it dry overnite
13) Once you've ascertained, that the surface is good enough, Spray the final paint.
14) Ensure, you spray Antirust coating on the other side also.

So here, what happens is, You also give the panel an antirust coating, as well as ensure, it does not look different from paint. And that particular panel remains rust proof for a long time to come.

I had to go out on a long vacation with family.

Trouble was, NO PARKING space, its different that i park few cars on the road-side, but atleast my folks will be around to keep an eye on them daily, but this loong break, i needed to borrow someones parking space for few cars.

Had to trouble Arun1100, since he has a HUMONGOUS and covered parking space, big enough to house all my cars and his cars too

Exactly 1 month later (TODAY) i go to drive out the Variant... (Thanks to him for helping me when needed the most )

Took some snaps with his 1100 Delight, Infact his car was not started for over 6 months, connect the battery and CRANK... It spurs to life....What a sight to see 2 Stock Beauties together.

Thumbs up Re: Bone Stock 1967 VW Variant

Hi Pavan,

I have been reading all your restoration threads for quite some time now and I must say you are doing an excellent job! I just went through this thread and I am happy that you are the proud owner of this wonderful car. I think this must be one of those rare cars that land up in the hands of a good enthusiast, after spending a good life in the hands of the previous enthusiast!! Please do take a moment and thank the previous owner; he too was a true enthusiast just like you are and the condition of the car is a testimony to it.

Keep up the good work, and lets hope you become the owner of many such beautiful cars!

Q. Do you use NC Paints exclusively or do you also use 2K partially or in full?

Most of the cars waited a long time for HIM. I'll do the same . But seriously, many of you know him personally and would have the answers too. Even that will be enough.
My serious hobby is detailing and going back into surface preparation & coatings. Restorers can save time and money by paint removal with alkali gel (actually Sodium Hydroxide with starch - use with utmost caution, dangerous stuff to handle) and subsequently getting quite a lot of it sandblasted to bare metal.
When the work is over, it is a pleasure to see the engine & engine compartment squeaky clean too.

Found the answer in another thread "1950 Morris Minor Convertible Restoration" Quoting his reply on a similar query -

"I always insist on Dupont materials for paint. While the paint used is superior quality of Dupont paint which is called Dupont Super LE ( LE - Low emission )

Procedure involved:

1) 2K primer and patti
2) 2K Base coats - 3 coats
3) Dupont surfacer
4) Dupont Tube patti
5) 3 coats of Dupont Super ( what ever shade )

The paint was done in the open, but in a dust free surroundings and also when the sun was Burning Hot outside."

If you want to see detailing please see these two threads

1. This thread is an owners passion for detailing
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-w...ml#post1688124 (My 1958 Mercedes-Benz Type 180a Ponton)

2. This thread is a restorers passion for detailing
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/pre-wa...ml#post1938772 (Restoring a 1933 Chevrolet Master Phaeton)

You will learn much from these threads as these are no compromise restorations

Cheers

Nothing much to report on this lovely car.

There were few small things that needed to be done, my mech (aanji) was free over the week, so the car goes to his house for a regular service.

1) Brake clean-up and overhaul
2) New points + Condencer
3) New Tie-rod ends ( since the one on the car is from 1967)
4) Engine oil change
5) Gear oil change
6) Tappet adjustment
7) Engine tune-up

Added a back-up emergency electric fuel pump, not needed, but in case of unforseen emergencies only.
