Doors off

In order to remove the last of the perished rubber door seals the doors had to be removed. The seals are riveted through a metal strip into their channels. Unlike the rest of the Series 2a rover body the bulkhead is made from steel and was not galvanized originally. The perished rubber seals along the front of the doors had trapped moisture against the steel and caused some rust in a couple of places. While the doors were off these areas were cleaned, sanded, and painted with rust converting paint as an interim measure.
