Got most of the paint off at the lake. The rust worms were shallow so she’s gonna be fine :) Just two dings in the TT to fill.

Interesting that the gussets are both brazed and tig welded.

It will be painted the same way as it was originally.

This one could not be left as is Kay. It needed a full restoration to be saved. Do it right and it’s good for another 30 years. Pretty sure those salsa decals are transfers.

Unfortunatly they are not. I had a similar project with my MG Deluxe, kept all the the important paint and the rest got an overhauling. Was somehow worth it.
All the best.
