Is the stuff from Malaysia new or second hand?  And just off ebay or what?  Looks like it should be pretty rad.

Either New, Second hand or NOS. Depends what comes up really. And no, not eBay. either FaceBoobs or just whatever my agent finds. there's a big old school community over there

I have an agent over there, I find parts online, he finds them around the country and then we ship them over here.
If you need anything for your 25, let me know. Would be happy to help if I can :)

please don't tell me you are going to hack up that nice original tan interior.

it does look rather mint.

 

I am not hacking it up at all in any stretch of imagination! There was a fella down in Dunedin who bought a KE30 project and he has bought all of this tan interior. 
I wouldn't hack up an old school mint interior, would only replace with original parts. Which is what I am doing :D

FYI: I used about 5kg of dry ice to remove the sound deadening in my triumph. If I had to do it again, I'd get a bit more. Near the end, enough of it had disappeared that I didn't have enough to freeze complete sound deadening sheets and had to do them a bit at a time.

Much easier at the start when you have enough to just fill up each floor area with dry ice.

What product are you using to treat the rust on some of those patches? Might be my monitor, but the areas still look to be quite rusty, including the "new" metal you're replacing rust with?

This is the main one, just looks like you're welding to rust along the top edge? I'd be chopping it back till there was no deep pitting with rust, just my2c though.

Yeah, I tacked it a few more times where there wasn't pitted rust then attacked it with the grinder and wire wheel to bring back to bare steel and epoxy etch primed over it.
Also, the sheet steel I got was beautiful on one side and then just surface rust on the other. got it for cheap so all good. came off in a couple of seconds

kinda disappointing your painting it black. although it will still look good.

but choosing a colour is always hard too.

glad to see some progress on this!

Wat, black is all good. Nice work doing all the panel work yourself.

Thanks, it's always fun to learn this stuff. hopefully doesn't all fall to bits after it's painted haha
