  1. The floor looks nice and flat, the cab will soon start to look better when stripped and repainted!

  3. I know the ones. Gusbus has them, we made rubber bungs and sealed them in place. Worked a treat & don't let wet in :)

  14. It’s something in the hammerite that makes other paints react
     
  15. Oh well not a lot I can do about it
    when ever I remove it takes hours cuz have to use paint stripper cuz blocks up sander instantly

  16. Heat it up with an electric heat gun and use a scraper to remove the worst of it
    Then use a 3m strip and clean pad on a grinder for most of the rest
    It’s a horrible paint to remove
