 Hah!  That's nothing! In 1990 I bought a used engine to run in the TR6 whilst
I rebuilt its original engine.  That used engine is still in there.

Some day I'll get a round tuit.

Iechyd da !

I bare metaled my front wings (fenders) by sandblasting 10 years ago. Then I
sprayed them immediately with a high concentrate zinc primer the kind they
use on ocean based oil rigs to stop rust.
They have been stored in my unheated garage since, awaiting the day I
finally get the car together, no detectable rust.
I live in Wales UK which has a very damp climate winter and summer.
Zinc primer works for me.
