Right from the start it was obvious there was some rust around the fuel filler neck, but there was no reason to believe that it was as extensive as it turned out to be. But the biggest problem wasn’t the rot itself or even the extent of it. It was the fact that the rusty areas were rather inaccessible. So only one way to tackle this was to remove the bad bits together with some of the better bits, just to create some working space;
And replace them. As most of these panels are not in sight they will be replaced with homemade repair sections.
