Old vs "new" :)

they are not new, just coloured. Front springs are yellow, so I painted these in yellow too.

I dont want to camouflage all that rust. I just want to hide it and stop it from expansion. Thats why I used only basic colour in spray and not those rubber based underbody protection stuff. When it start to rust again, I will notice it immediately so I can start doing something with it.

This is all I can do in my curent conditions so I know, its not the best work but Im not restoring it…. yet :).

Brothers :)
