We had some warm weather yesterday, and as we are down to the bare subframe, I took it out side and washed and scrubbed it. We then wire wheeled the whole thing and MIG welded the seams.
There's still some gunk inside the frame, but I doubt I'll get it all out. I was thinking of spraying the inside with engine de-greaser. Anybody have a better way that can be done at home?
Once that's done, I'm planning on using POR-15 for paint.
Inch by inch, this projects a cinch.

I wouldn't de-grease the inside.. It's the grease in there that's helping prevent rust. ;)

Also welding up all the seams is not so necessary either. The factory's short stitch welding is a good idea because if one of those welds develops a crack, it will stop when it gets to the end of that stitch intead of running the entire length of the frame.

Anyway POR-15 is great stuff. Not so accurate as far as lustre is concerned (a bit too glossy for my liking), but a top notch product anyhow.:thumbsup:
