I want this car to stay around for another 23 years, so it was time to protect it from the demon rust! So up on the ramp it went, everywhere was wire brushed down to remove any dirt, loose surface rust and failing underseal, then any remaining surface rust was treated with bilt hamber hydrate 80, all the box sections were treated with bilt hamber cavity wax and finally we protected all areas with dinitrol 4941.
We have been using all these products to great effect in our work with mx5\'s, so we trust them
Now for some pictures
Front nearside arch with liners removed, you get a good idea of how rust free the car is from these pictures
Just look at the area that was hidden by the arch liner, it looks new!
The same arch after it has been cleaned off with a wire brush and the surface rust areas treated with bilt hamber hydrate 80
Nearside rear arch before any work started
The same arch after a wire brush attack!
23 years of crap that came out of that one arch
Still on the same arch, showing the hydrate 80 treatment and the inspection camera going inside the sill, I tried to take a picture of what I could see on the screen but it didn\'t really work, in the end I just took a picture through the hole, which is shown in the picture after this one
Amazingly rust free inside the sills
More hydrate 80 treatment
The next series of photos show the same work but on the other side of the car
The next series of photos show the underside of the car, mostly showing areas of surface rust, these did get treated with hydrate 80, I just forgot to take photos, notice again how rust free the car actually is
This area of expert (probably kick fit) jacking damage got bent straight and treated to
Rear sill end areas after a wire brushing
One of the many areas where we sprayed with cavity wax, this has a 1m lance
Finished underside of the car, you may noticed that we removed the exhaust to gain better access to areas around it
Exhaust and under trays refitted
Front arch liners refitted
And that\'s it, that should keep the rust demons at bay
