Scrub the tub

The original Limestone paint, scuffed and worn, was at some point in the distant past covered over with grey spray paint. A careful attempt was made to remove the flaking spray paint from the inside of the rear tub while leaving as much of the original rover paint as possible.

Under the Limestone paint on the bulkhead, where it had not been scuffed away over the years, one can see the golden surface of the aluminum as left by the zinc chromate etching primer that was used in the factory. Would look great to have a full vehicle in this finish without paint over it!

All of the galvanized steel parts cleaned, no more flaky spray paint, and so nice to see the remaining original colour.
