O túnel central fica localizado por cima da caixa de velocidades e transferências e como viram no tópico anterior, tinha muita gordura e óleo de há muitos anos a proteger parte da chapa.
Foi raspada antes de ser limpa, logicamente.
A parte que não esteve em contacto directo com o óleo, as tais laterais que aparecem nas fotografias e que ligam aos footwells, apodreceram.
Às vezes não é nada mau ter estas camadas de óleo a preservar a chapa.
"I will let the images speak for themselves, the photographs are shown with the correct order of events/process made, i hope it's clear for you what and how it's been done"
The centre tunnel is screwed in place on top of the gearbox and transfer box, as you seen on some previous photos, there was a lot of grease and oil protecting that area from beneath, keeping it from rusting. It was all scraped before cleaning.
The areas that weren't covered with oil and residue rotten out, as you can see on the side edges that connect to the footwells.
Sometimes it's not bad at all to have a little oil covering your sheet metal, protecting it from corrosion."
