Spent two tedious hours in the workshop this evening. Removed the seam sealant and sound insulation from the boot. Not the nicest of work, but it has to been done to get the best effect from the shot blasting. A few pictures of the result of this evenings work;
The (surface) rust that was hidden underneath the seam sealant at least proved that the work was necessary. A comforting thought indeed!
The spare wheel well after 30 minutes of scraping and chiselling.
