Okay so today I just sprayed the floor with stone chip .before that I cut out lots of rust !
And welded in lots and lots of new metal.
I then scraped off all of the old under seal , I then used wire brush heads in my grinder to clean away any surface rust , then applied 2 coats of hydrate 80 rust converter, then put on 3 coats of isopon zinc primer then 3 coats of hamerite smooth paint then 1 coat of stone chip paint , there’s so much product on the underneath of her now that I think it would probably float if I ever drove her into a flood :)
I don’t think I’d risk that though ! :)
Here’s some pics of the progress so far .

Sunroof car?

I would re-route the drain hoses to maybe, to a hole on a rear wheel well to avoid water running into that channel again in the future.

Hi , yes she’s a sunroof car .
I have the rear roundel drain re-routed out into the wheel well you can just see the hole in this photo . but yes you are right I should definitely do something with the front sunroof drains also.
Thanks for the link !
