The previous owner rubberised the interior for some reason. I thought that it was still in a good condition and that I would just clean it out and I would carpet over it.

But the weekend with some closer inspection I realised that it was lifting and that the one door is leaking, causing water to build up between the rubberising and the floor-pan.
Glad to say that all rubberising has been removed. Now sanding and then some paint......

Also recently done the areas under the front and rear seats.... it looked as if the battery had a baby powder party

What size is the Willard battery you have?

Thank you. Does it fit nicely? Do you use the original bracket and ‘dop’?

When the time comes I will be replacing my battery with something a bit bigger (Ah) and also if possible with the recessed terminals.

You are making good progress and have put in a lot of elbow grease! :D

How was/is the condition of the pan halves?

Pan is actually good, just the usual part where the battery is, is a bit rusted. Will cut it out and replace the small section.

Must say a lot of elbow grease :D ... was a mission to get the rubberizing removed.
