great work David. im in the process of doing a restoration too. i've exposed a lot of the rust and grind must of it off. however there are areas that have some pitting and sand blast is not an option for me, im sure you encountered areas like this. have you used any rust remover(phosphoric acid) or rust converter? im not sure which to use. one of the reasons is because i havent decided if i should use epoxy primer or a zinc primer.
So a small update, I can’t get back to the welding as still need to keep the garage clean for engine building. The Sr20ve is coming along but slowly I have had the crank in and out about 20 times to get the clearances right but the bottom end is now together.
It would be fully built but the machine shop is having issues reaming the valve guides and covid-19 has slowed that right down.
Due to covid-19 and the lock down it now means I have to spend my mornings looking after the kids then working afternoons and long evenings leaving me shattered. It also made me realise we needed a gate to keep the kids in when playing. So knocked up a 5ft high 8m longs sliding gate. It works really well given this is the first gate I have ever made
Sorry I missed this update before replying to the post you put in mine, I was half asleep. Love the tumbler set up, can't believe how well they've come up, can you get the abrasive pyramid things in different grades/sizes and will you be wire wheeling them as well or going straight to plating, kinda sad how excited I am about this, but i'm looking forward to seeing the plating kit your getting, something I would like to do myself so it'll be interesting to see how you get on, the place I take mine these days means an 100 mile round trip to drop off and the same to collect, bit of a pain but the quality is great and the owners seem to have a passion for what they do and get the OCD part.
Looking forward to your next post, whatever it is.
