Thanks Paul, I tried to get at it but kind of awkward to get to! I'm guessing I should be trying to get as much of the rust off before I start spraying it as well?

Yep! If you can get some zinc paint or anti rust primer on it too before you wax oyl it.

Looks good Danny.
I think you made the right decision with clear Waxoyl.
Mine was done with it a couple of weeks ago, and I just bought a 400ml tin so it can be topped up easily if necessary when next on a ramp :)

Hi Danny,
Great work there!
It was definitely the correct decision to use clear Waxoyl. The finish it gives is much more pleasing than the black stuff.

Hi Danny,

As already said great job there fella. Nice one ! That hammerite has made a great job of the petrol tank mate. I need to do mine too so think that I will use the same as you. What hammerite did you use Danny as there are a few finishes ? Great job with the brake drum too !

Keep up the great work mate :D

All the best

Nick

Thanks guys, always helps me get through the jobs with a little support! :)

Nick I used the smooth Hammerite for the petrol tank, I've used the textured/cracked look finish for things I'll see like the radiator infill panel, but for things people won't see I've just gone for smooth black hammerite in a can, much easier to spray on rather than painting it on!

And thanks for the advice Paul, will make sure I prep it properly before I waxoyl the rear valence

I'll have to pick up some more of the clear waxoyl stuff as it really works a treat, just need to do the other car now!!
