You have many hours of work ahead of yourselves.

I hope you can assist poor Lisa with the monumental task.

Finish with a roller is remarkably good.

Hi Marcus, to clean the alloy and not damage labels, have you considered dry ice blasting? Expensive, but might work best when disassembled to get at everything.
This is just an example.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O4gemWrn84
Takes off all the schmutz.

Cheers, Mudgy.

Very 'cool'. :)
I used some of the phosphoric acid on it and came out quiet well. Just have to avoid any zinc plated fasteners.

Because I didn't get sick while using the respirator, I will be doing most of it now. She will help when doing the frame as there is a lot to do at once.
We used a 3M one but was still some leaking around the top of my nose as have a sharp bridge. Anyone come across a better one if they have the same problem?

You might look into CPAP machine nose pads. they are used to seal between a CPAP mask and your nose.

Nice to see progress, you are very lucky to have such a willing (?) assistant. I agree with the amazing finish you can get from a roller. I did the underside of my body with POR15 and a roller, looks like it was sprayed in a booth !!

I never make the same mistake twice, I do it 5 or 6 times just to be sure !!!

Lots to do there Marcus, will you paint over it to improve the UV stability or are all these parts “hidden” ?
