Finally got some black on it.
Just a first coat -there's at least one run & one spot of bubbly reaction -but it's progress.
No idea how I'm going to do this cos I need to fully paint the removable diff casting & bolt it back down, then add a smear of Araldite around the joint to seal it, before final paint on the rest. I'm sure something will end up scratched up.
I vaguely remember the diff weeping oil & a previous owner had sealed it with chemical metal, but presumably while the axle was still in the original Sherpa van. Looks like the bodge was done on top of oily metal so hadn't fully adhered & oil was weeping out underneath the sealant.
It's a bodge to Araldite it, but I'm not disturbing the diff to replace the gasket.
Then once it's fully painted I need to re-fit the hubs, driceshafts & brakes, then somehow get it under the Pop without destroying the paint.

Who's pop van is that?  I'm sure you must have a mate to help you with the axle?  Bolt it in first and then fit everything else after

Nobody nearby to help.
I'm working in a small lock-up & don't have the room to fit both driveshafts with the axle in place. The brake back plates have to go on first, before the floating hubs & driveshafts, so it all has to be done off the car.

The Pop belongs to a guy on a Facebook Pop owners' page.

Ha ha Smiley
Thanks, I might take you up on that chaps!
-don't worry though, it'll be a while yet.
The Pop's sat quite close to one wall of the garage, so I need to get at least one hub/drive shaft assembly re-fitted once I've painted the axle.

I think you'd make a lot more progress if you had a garage like that!!
