How far did you strip it back? Got any pics? 

Mostly to bare metal. Didn't get any pics of it just before paint unfortunately, here is about 90% stripped.

Mostly strip disc on the grinder. Used a wire brush attachment for the grinder and drill to get some of the bits round the seams. Manual sanding with 80 grit for the rest.

No worries mate, I'll probably have heaps of questions when it comes to reassembling it!

Looking good. What is the brand of epoxy primer you are brushing on? Looks plenty fine for underneath and no messy overspray is a win. Thanks.Vaughan

Thanks. I am using PPG Epotec 408 primer

What did you find out about belts on b pillar?

I'm about to take my mk3 for Revin and am worried about my belt mounts requiring cert.

Nothing concrete. I put a post on facebook and several others also had the bolt though the piller. I think it must have been an NZDM thing, hence it didn't make it into the workshop manuals.

Let me know how you get on please.

The bolt through the pillar is fairly common for the era. Shouldn't be a problem on a vehicle that is otherwise stock.
