Centre Tunnel Dents

Moving on, here's the next instalment from Barry:

With the car mounted on the rotisserie, work proper could begin.

As is usual, the centre tunnel had been battered over the years, although I've seen very much worse. Much of the damage could be pulled out with welded studs and a slide hammer. Towards the rear, it was too badly crushed to retrieve using studs, so I removed the whole area, scraped and blasted it, before beating it back to the correct shape. With this done, the edges were primed in a zinc rich weld-thru primer, and the centre in black etch.

With the painting done, the area could be welded back in and the whole area tidied back up.
