I'll be honest Matt, although a little worse for wear after a near 12k wolf run and then being out on the lash since 2:30, it all looks good to me....can't see much needing welding there??

Nicely done on the Wolf Run Ben!

The other side didnít look like it needed much welding either remember...






But Dannyís spidey sense is spot on, after a hunch that there might be more lurking underneath, a strip down on the layers was the right choice

This was still lurking under the top layer. This piece was removed too



Hereís the top bit that looked ok before it was cut out



And the ugly reverse...



Scary really isnít it.

Danny will have it looking original by the time heís finished with it.

Shall grab a few more hours in the garage this afternoon.

In the meantime following recommendation Iíve been doing some reading and video watching for POR15. The stuff does seem to have fantastic reviews so hopefully applying that should seal everything nicely.

Iíll then overcoat it with some spray on stone chip type coating to give a more original texture followed by a top coat, the colour of which Iím yet to decide.

As standard the original coating is a kind of orangey beige colour with the typical PSA half arsed splash of bodywork colour over the top wherever they felt like it

Matt,

I've read differing reviews on POR15. Some love it, some don't have anything good to say about it....

Seems it's properly fussy about the surface it's applied on. Have you considered the Bilt Hamber stuff? Electrox primer followed by Epoxy Mastic?

Peugeot 309 GTi restoration

Edited: my last comments are now entirely redundant.

In short, Benís twisted my arm & convinced me to use Bilt Hambers Epoxy Mastic & not POR15.

Por 15 can be fussy and peel off.

Good call using Epoxy mastic

Good call, however I would definitely recommend the Upol Raptor although I never used it on body work I did use it on Discovery for my bumpers and other suspension parts etc and it was definitely pushed to its limits and never showed any sign of failing

Evening all, Iíve spent the whole day on the 309 again continuing where I left off with the rust removal using Bilt Hamber Deox Gel.

It really isnít the quickest of processes but it does do what itís supposed to do & itís entirely upto you how much manual or machine labour that you put into it.

Iíve deliberately not gone OTT with any grinding as I want to keep as much good metal as possible. However I do use a small range of wire wheel type attachments on the drill & dremmel as well as a sharpened flat blade screwdriver to scratch the head off the rust scab so to speak before applying the Deox Gel.

Considering Iíve spent all day on this this is as far as Iíve got, itís incredibly frustrating but progress is progress

Before starting today



After todayís work



Whilst the Deox was doing its job I did turn some attention back to the passenger side. I bought myself a very thin artists brush and have used Bilt Hambers Hydrate80 pushing as much of it as possible under any seams in the box sections. If any bits of rust have crept under then hopefully itíll convert some of it/protect for the future.

Generally Iím happy to be making some progress on it again. I aim to have something more photo worthy for you all soon

Another couple of hours work this afternoon. Whizzed off some more of the factory stone chip stuff which makes a right mess, and the Deox Gel has another 2 hours worth of action.
