Do you do this for a living?


No, just a hobby that's got a bit out of hand :)
My dad was a bit of a do-it-yourself-guy, so learned the basics of wrenching and welding when I was a teenager. First started with RC stuff, then bought a motorbike, bought a car, bought a couple of more cars and bikes and tools...

During weekdays, I'm having a (desk) job as an engineer in the airforce, doing my best to keep the Apaches flying.
So out of office hours, I'm glad to do some work with my hands again.

Next phase, preservation of rocker panels and frame.
For this I bought this pressure-blaster with some hoses and spray nozzle; it's a Vaupel 3100 ASR

Using this kind of wax, scored pretty high in corrosion-preservation testing I think Mercedes uses this stuff as an OEM:

Then forward with the assembly phase, starts looking like a car again:

Fitment of the suspension brackets on my new chassis parts:

Preservation wax driplets on the holes I sprayed this stuff in:
