Hi Col
Your chassis looks a bit better than mine. I have replaced and repaired the plates on the front, drilled out the spot welds and cut out. ( photos in club Magazine) and today just finished painting the chassis with KYB chassis black. Dear paint but it is a rust converter and a top coat in one.
I set the chassis on some saw stools and took to it over three days with a couple of electric wire brushes, first pressure cleaning it.
You have a lot of working space in that shed
Cheers.
