    You should have come to Corowa this year, there was a Lark and Duck both in the water doing their thing. Lark has been there the last 3 years, it’s a beast.

    Just a quick up date without pictures.
    Repainted the roof hatches after sitting out in the weather for 7 years now and done a much better job of it.
    Still cutting rust out of the stalwarts arse.
    photo bucket and now Flickr are problematic for me.
    Now do you post pictures straight from my computer to this thread ?

    I am learning how post the pics straight from computer to thread ????
    some up side down etc...…..
    The problem with the inside of the roof hatches was I painted them with tar based product which got soft with the heat of the sun and caused the paint on top of it to crack.
    The exposure to weather killed the paint on the out side, nothing which the big cabinet sand blaster couldn't fix.

    Found a video I took of the Lark coming into the lagoon.

    Just another up date.

    Time, weather and money have been working against me as normal.
    effort put in to the stalwart has been minimal .
    The rear end of the Stalwart is now water tight except for the door seals as that is the last job to be done.
    saving up to buy some more camo paint.....I did say money was tight.
    Looking at the rear cross member which corrodes because it fills with water I added some small drain back to the hull holes to stop water pooling inside the cross member tube.
    the tube has been treated with phosphoric acid, then red lead primer and then chassis under body sealer to try and stop future rust between plates inside the tube which is hard to access.
    I have been looking at the next challenge , the RHS upper body work.
    this will take a while to knock over.
    this side of the vehicle has been patched- plated over many times before and some of those patches are still water proof, but have been done poorly with rust between the patch plate and the original body work.
    I have not given up with this project, and it has not beaten me yet, but I have slowed up on it.
    the first pic is just the now completed rear cross member minus the final paint and rubber seal.
    the second pic shows inside the rear compartment showing the other side of the cross member tube and one of the extra holes drilled into it to let any water out.

    This picture shows the RHS body work just forward of the centre wheel station......note the rivets, many plates, some stick welding ect.
    this believe it or not this is water proof, but must be done correctly as it is a water and rust trap.
    It is one of the things which show this Stalwart is no virgin in the swimming department...…….some one went to the trouble to try and seal it .
    The fact this Stalwart has its swimming gear on it and working backs this up.( after the army removed it in 1985)
    I now realise the short drive shafts for the Dowty water jet drives are shortened Landrover tailshafts……..done after British army service.

    These following photos show other things wrong on the RHS upper body work which is next to be done.
    look carefully you can see existing patches which have been welded over rust holes......I need to remove them and flush weld in patches as over lap , or weld over the top patches are rust traps.
