Oubaas’ New Windscreen

Yesterday late the mechanic sent some photos …

First they took out the old windscreen and …
… OY VEY! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The frame is more rust than metal! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
You don’t wanna eat from such an unhygienic place! ๐Ÿ˜

Those pics don’t even show all the bubbles where the rusty patches are hiding underneath. They are now busy cutting all that small shit out and filling it up with molten lead. It’s apparently a very old panelbeater technique most young guns don’t even know about. In any way, to my ears it sounds so much better than using putty and body filla, coz it fills up all the infected area and not just covers it to make it surfacely look good. Mecha tells me parts that are prepared with lead will never rust again! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is shit they’re telling me

I can’t wait for the next bunch of photos.


    • Yeah, he’s a godsend. The more of in a country full of overpriced cowboy mechanics. Even my V8 specialists of the 8 Crate Garage send all the cars over to him when they are at the end of their wits. In fact half of the cars in his shop I’ve seen at 8 Crate before.


      • Can’t wait to see what he’ll do to my dashboard … fearing the invoice tho. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ But Oubaas is worth it. Not many of those old Transits around here in SA.

        • And, yes, he showed me where he worked with lead on some of his oldtimer projects. It’s really something different from the usual Bondo job.
