Lots done, I keep getting deja vu in this thread.
Spraymax is good stuff but a bit expensive if you need to do the whole car.
Do wear proper respiratory protection.. that stuff is really bad for you.

I think it came to about €60 for the 4 cans... It would be dearer now with delivery thanks to brexit

About the safety, I wore a full painters suit, visor and organic vapour filters on the mask..... There's no isocyanates in it, but can't be too careful. For the underside I might use jotun90 applied with a roller ...

No iso's, didnt know that, but it still pays off to practice extreme caution. From what I've gleaned over the internets, even the water-based paints are still very bad news for your health, just in different ways. Your mask should be fine as long as you change the filters on time.
I bought 4 cans of epoxy primer (iso based), used up 1.5 so far, and that was mostly spot repairs since the whole car was already primered after blasting.

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify some holes in the firewall. This pic is taken from the engine bay, driver's side (rhd car). I know 1 2 & 3 are clutch, brake and throttle, but what about the two circled in pink?[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 booter]

.... I was going through your project thread today @Ivan141 , and I noticed you'd fitted the gussets in the engine bay too! How you getting on with yours? (I only got to page 44, because I had to leave work, come home and do some welding/grinding)

Please don't look too close at my welds..[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 booter][Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 booter]

Last thing I did was sand/scuff the entire interior.
Need to pick up a new spray gun and I'm set to paint the inside.
Must admit that there is a teensy bit of surface rust coming from a seam in the back that is doing my nut in. Realistically I know there will be many seems that still have a bit of rust in them (the japanese 86 resto on youtube gave me nightmares in that regard by showing all the spots I did not bother to peel apart). So I guess I'll just do the best I can and douse those seams in rust converter pre-painting, and cavity wax post-paint, then hope it will last me a while.

Yeah, I don't think that his ae86 has been welded before, seems to be all original paint, he seems to be able to find evidence of rust in certain areas ie. cracked paint and rust stains. Mine has been repainted at least twice, so the paint could be hiding a multitude of sins .... He also seems to know where to cut, places that appear to be fine; I'd say it's not his first rodeo lol

Have you picked your colours yet? I was originally going red panda, but am not so sure now... Considering kawasaki green including the engine bay... As I'm shaving it, be a shame to do all that work in there and not make it 'pop'...

All captive nuts and holes welded/patched on the inner wings. Not sure what to do about the firewall... I've not been able to identify all the holes, so until then....

I may fill in the bolt holes above the seam, as it's quite visible with the engine in. Also I think I'll smooth out some of the top of the front lamp panel, in for a penny; in for a pound sorta thing[Image: AEU86 AE86 - AE86 booter]

Going shaved bay? The thought seems appealing until you look at the amount of mounting holes in the engine bay and consider where the hell else you are going to mount all that crap.

Got the new outriggers fitted, which is all of the structural welding for the front end completed. They're formed from 1.2mm and are noticably heavier than the originals, so hopefully they'll add to the strength.
