That looks totally perfect as it is. Just needs a dead matt varnish to keep it like that forever. Love those tyres.

Back to James' Appia, please get her back on the road (full of waxoyl and underseal) and share the pleasure ! Along with many people, seeing an old and interesting car on the road makes me smile - perfect or otherwise

ps if you are keeping the yellow plates, keep the mag alloys and leave the bumpers off - pimp her up - as a youth might say
Simon just for you , looks odd without the front bumper as on an s2 sedan the front wings finish just below the top of the front bumper, wings are nothing like the van/pickup wings, have you ever seen a morris minor with no front bumper, if so you will get what I meen, made some progress today, car has been steam/powerwashed off underneath and under arches so is now really clean for preservation, fuel tank has been resealed again (total of 3 times....just to be sure) gear linkage and handbrake all freed off, bumpers refitted (after welding and buffing), tomorrow I'm hoping to underseal and cavity wax, sunday busy on other things but next weekend I will hammer into it and hopefully running and driving, may have to swap the head yet as the banjo bolt for the inlet manifold water pipe feels like its going to snap, I happen to have a NOS head in the parts dept so I think the cars worthy, I'm also looking for an early weber manifold for the 6 port head, I have 2 carbs but only 1 manifold (which is reserved for the Ardea pickup)

looks fantastic, 84 year old paint job that's still "evolving" agreed matt laquer and use it, would make a hell of a company advert!

any paint needs a "key" to stick to, I've never done it myself but from what I have seen origional paint is scotch brighted , rust is left alone and laquer applied, think that's it

Ok.....powerhose, dry, do any body work prep to worst spots/areas......ie rub down or just orbital grinder on(?).......scotch brighted  means?

Basically its as you always advocated.....deprive metal of air and water and its stays in same condition ad infinitum?

if your doing a "true" rat look, you don't rub any rust down you leave well alone, scotch bright is like the green plastic brillo pads that you use on your pots and pans, you rub that all over the paint that's left to just key up the paint so that the laquer will stick to it, the laquer is normal 2k with matting agent to make it go dull, this is then painted over the whole body to seal it and stop it getting worse, another trick used by ratters is just cooking oil all over it to stop it rusting

Ok........think I'd opt for the first......smelling like a chip van doesn't appeal!

And the ultra weathered/look wooden sections?

same again, just laquer over it, wood doesn't need keying up as its porous
