Been a while since I have had any time to do anything to my M1A2 but have finally decided its not going to do itself.
Its been sitting in the workshop for the past 6mths with nothing done on it so I decided to get it primed up so it won’t just rust away.
Turret still bolted together
Unbolted and quite rusty on the base plate and around welded seams
Hull and motor mounts with lots of surface rust
Went around and rust killed 90% of the surface area of both the hull and turret parts.
Even with a very quick skim coat of primer it’s starting to look a lot cleaner. Will be doing a full coat of primer tomorrow, sand and redo so that it’s all protected
