True. I want electric to use my Karcher and snow stuff so may drive my van home (it’s at a storage place at the moment with water but no leccy)...will probably get arrested for non essential travel ?. Is butterfly removal essential....not sure..Have removed this type of thing before using a hairdryer but obviously you can’t do that but scrapping off in my opinion is a very big no no.
You say at the moment, if thats the case in the current situation why the rush?
corrosion is oxidisation - most metals oxidise, though it doesnt always damage the metal. you could always design a new decal to put on both sides so it matches and looks 'original'
you will over a period of time pick up dings and dents. i wouldnt be too precious about an older vehicle having a few, so long as they are not holes where mositure can get through,
we werent too bothered about our first motorhome having a couple of minor blemishes, we could then drive it confidently knowing we were unlikely to do any minor damage that would significantly reduce its value
Yes I’m not worried about the dents but the the bottom one has holes...I suppose a bit of ordinary body filler would do. P.38 or something......haven’t used that since I did the chills on my MGB 40 yard ago !Thumb nail photo is definitely corrosion and need sorting, the others are probably dents from bikes on the bike rack.
The paint code under the bonnet would be the original fiat body colour not the Hymer colour.
Northernraider aka Gone had some holes to fill in his Hymer back wall (removed bike rack) he filled and then got a big sticker/graphic to cover all of holes in one go.
if the corrosion is on the side fill and have a graphic made to cover and repeat on the other side.
