Today's work, rubbed down both front Inner wings for epoxy primer. Sanded with 80 grit and panel wiped about 10 times hopefully the epoxy primer will stick.

Looking really good!

 

I did similar work on a mk1 GTI a few years back.

 

What are you using to clean back the rubberised coatings from the inner wings out of interest?

Thanks Ben. I'm useing mainly wire wheels in the drill, grinder, heat gun and scraper. Its a nightmare but worth It as I have found the start of rust underneath in quite a few places it's very slow going but don't think there's a easier way.

I don't either. I find that heat gun and scraper are about the best option. If you can get the heat gun on the other side of the panel, I find that heating the coating from behind helps it come off quicker and easier.

Thanks Ben ill give that ago ill set the heater up inside facing the floor pan, It's one of the more long winded jobs. 

Also do you paint your suspension bits with 2k gloss or chassis black.

Finished removing the last bit of vw sealer from the passenger main floor pan.

Sandblasted some of rust round the jacking point stump, was going to remove it but it seems to have cleaned up well.

Washed the whole floor pan down with panel wipe, scuff pad and plenty of blue roll. Managed to get some epoxy primer on.

This must be such a labour of love. I know how time consuming this job is.

 

It's looking really great!
