Oh well what a day ive had today but must admit all the hard work over the past two/three weeks is looking like its going to be worth it. After lots of hard work cleaning up the underneath of the car it was treated with rust bullet on Tuesday then i seam sealed it on Wed then gave it a couple of coats of original Scotia white yesterday. Im pleased with the result considering i didnt want to do it and i am looking fowrd to seeing the end result when i have put everything back together

I would post up pics off the work you've done as it will help the sale no end, it sounds as though you've done a proper job.

Thanks Mike, yes i have done a proper job, I will post some finished pics up soon. I have tried but can't seem to do it so will have to get someone else to do it for me. I am pleased with the end result and have to say that Rust Bullet is a great product to work with.

Look forward to seeing the result. An underside resto is a big thing if done right and will is one thing the new owner doesn't need to worry about.

Did you catalogue the procedure? Showing the resto in stages will be great.

Really happy with the end result although nobody has bothered to comment. The car was sold to a guy from the Czech Republic on Friday so is now currently starting a new chapter in its life in Prague. I would of preferred to see it stay in the UK especially as it is one of the few UK cars left but the guy was first in the que to view it and turned up when he said he would, liked what he saw after an extensive inpection, test drive along with checking the paint with a micrometer and doing a compression test. Thank you to all who have made enquiries and good luck in yousearch for the perfect TME
regards
Wayne

life in Prague

Greetings from Prague It was quite a trip, but it was worth it. I bet all the Japanese guys also think the same about cars imported to UK Only a few 6TME was sold in Europe and prices of them are unreal, so I had to steal this one from you

Anyway, I did not even drive the car yet but I have big plans to make it even better than it is now. A proper restoration maybe, so it will get the best care.

Hi Jan
yes i agree it was quite a trip and i am pleased that you feel it was a trip worth making for you. It was a very hard week for me getting it back together in time for when you arrived although i am disappointed that i was unale to get the brakes bled properly so i was unable to take you out for a proper drive and show you just what "Edna" is capable of. When you drive the car i am confident that you will be more than happy with it. I look foward to keeping in contact with you and following the big plans you have for it
