Battery Box Repair On The C

Posted on: Tuesday November 14, 2017

20171113 180254

Here are the pictures of the battery box repair. Formed out of 18 Gauge metal, the existing stuff appears to be a little thinner so welding it in was an exercise in patience! I have to get a TIG welder for finicky stuff like this...although the MIG with very careful continuous tacks works pretty well and then careful grinding and clean up! My kind of fun for the evening!

Scraping the factory undercoating is the hard part

Got a big area of underbody (passenger side wheel well/firewall) cleaned, sanded and primed with self etching primer...hopefully in a few weeks I can get the underbody sprayed with the Truck Bed liner! The nice part is the lack of rust and rot in the car...

I am paying really close attention to seam sealing and getting all the crev...

So I cut them out and welded in new patch pieces. I also tackled a minor corrosion issue on the passenger side battery box - of cour...

MGC Rebuild - Scraping Continued

Posted on: Monday March 27, 2017

So this is where I am at about 80 or so

Hi All The scraping is continuing...have about 80% of the underside scraped of the factory under seal and misc dirt and crud. So far the floor is in excellent shape with the normal amount of dings/dents. I will have to do some repair of the battery brackets (I will likely close these up with sheet metal on the drivers side to use as a storage box as I did on my MG and leave the passenger side stock to drop in a single 12V battery. I have found that once I scrape off the under seal the re...
