Looks like the Deox-gel is a good product after all

Going to start to cut up BEG this weekend

Dont know whether this is of any use to you Mike, but I've got a shot blaster coming in to do my van in a couple of weeks. He blasted it about 4yrs ago and I primed the shell but never got around to getting the resto work started on it. I've got the shell booked in somewhere now so I'm getting the van blown over again. Might be easier for you than stripping it with chemicals & hard graft

Removed the O/S chassis leg this morning

Then managed to get the new(to it) leg extended and tacked into place

Also got most of the boot floor from the white car prepped, hopefully get the thing fitted tomorrow
