looks as though it's in fairly good nick?
In fairness John it’s pretty good. I think it’s had a bit of a resto some time back.
Today I decided to clean up a few components starting with the alternator which appears to be a Ford item (maybe an upgraded part?). I used a wire brush on the drill and then stuck it on the polishing mop on the bench grinder before masking the centre and end and giving it a light coat of etch primer then satin black.
Someone had sanded the top of the radiator header tank so I gave that a once over with the Solvol polish, before taking all the paint off the rad cowl, coating it with Kurust, then etch primed before satin blacking it. Then I stuck it all together and bolted it all back in. Following watching upbuildgarage videos I have purchased Fertan which seems to be similar stuff to Kurust so I’ll give it a shot once it arrives.
Already looking much better I think.
