after the under side was treated with por15 iam going to seam seal all the joints when iam finished with the inside of the car.now i know why these cars rusted so fast as they where only a couple of seams that had seam sealer had been applied and on the inside of the car no seam sealer at all only on the front bulkhead seams

Really enjoying your restoration pics, it looks like your Beta Coupe has led a very cosseted life & has obviously been well looked after over the years. Keep up the good work (and the momentum!).

At the risk of being labelled a complete divvie - what was the present - the thing that allowed you to strip the floors so well? If so i need to tell my wife about it. Have same car, but loads more rust!
