The Triumph Frame!

Now that's a job i seriously underestimated! I was thinking the sandblasting will take ap 8 hours of work. But with the thick layer of undercoat on the bottom of the frame i had to clean it all up before sandblasting! Another 4 hours of work surplus!

Anyway 90% of the frame is done now. just the front part where i have to reweld some rusted sections...
With the thick undercoat!

Allmost complete degreased!

Ready for sandblasting part II

(lot's of) work in progress

The result!
