New Paint on the bottom of the hull

Post by Steen Vøler » Wed Jul 10, 2013 10:09 am

hi all

I am the second owner of my jagdpanther and its the first JagdpPanther that was delivered to a customer from Armortek in 2008.

Being 5 years old now, I thought that it might need some TLC on the outside part of the hull.

We lifted the cat up with some heay duty machinery :-) and this is how it looked.

It took me 1.5 hour to make the surface nice and shining againg before painting with a very robust industry paint that should give a strong finish.

One strange thing was that all the srews on the right side of the hull was all loose and one was missing. I took the out one by one and put one some locktite to secure them firmly. Have to visit the tool store to get a replacement screw for the one missing.

On the left side all screws were tight and not loose

Being in the workshop we also drilled holes on the backplate to get closer to the real thing.


cheers
