I used one on the underside of mine before it was blasted as believe it or not blasting just pushes the underseal along like a lump of sticky chewing gum !

I'm still using it for cleaning other bits and bobs up prior to painting !

Can't wait to see your progress !

I had a little play with the grinder wire wheel attachment last night as it was playing on my mind and it comes off quite quickly as I got quite a bit off in a matter of seconds so I'll try using this arrangement to begin with.

Like you say there quite pricy but thanks for the advice and if I start to struggle then its another path I can take thanks

I've had a look up the chassis box section and once again I don't think its looking to bad, this is the worst one and its not really that bad so I'm just glad its coming apart and not just falling apart

probably the worst corrosion on the car as of yet is on the front cross member under the radiator but its still treatable, ill post some more pictures of it once its been stripped back.

I'll continue the stripping down once I'm back and I would like to hope that I will have it completely stripped, up on the spit and the under body stripped back and treated with Rust Bullet.

Looking good , i would probably replace the front lower cross member as if its anything like the one i changed on my old Evo2 it will be a lot worse than it looks at first glance!, due to the design its a real water trap and rust starts deep inside inbetween the seams.
They are cheap enough to buy from mitsi or rosssport etc and not that bad a job to swap over.

The engine has always been ok but could do with a tidy up so that will be getting a dose while it's out.

I'm not looking at increasing the power as it's already running 350 ish.

If anything I'll be putting it back to the factory spec of 280 and run it's completely factory.

That sounds like a clever move! Specially for the value of the car

No stripes though? I think it is the first Pink TME that "I've seen" without the stripes...!

I recommend an MBX as well, I use one at work when removing under seal

Tidy looking motor.

Is this possible to do without a ramp? Every time one of these threads come up I have hope that it may be a non mechanic having a go in a normal single car garage. I want to have a go myself and would call myself a home mechanic. I got an impact wrench for Xmas in anticipation for this project.

Good start on the project, will be reading with interest as you go along. Car looks quite tidy to be starting with, unfortunately I'll be needing a fair bit of cutting and welding done on my 5.

Entirely possible in a home garage, I've seen plenty of threads here of people getting the car up on stands and getting to work. It's not as comfortable, but definitely can be done.

Yeah it was never in bad condition but it certainly needed a bit of TLC before there's any major problems.

As Jrecardo says it's very possible to do at home in a single garage as there is loads of threads on hear where people have done it on axel stands and produced amazing results.

I would recommend a set of axel stands with the highest support height though to give you the best acces to the under body.
