My Evo 6 underbody restoration thread

Having had my evo for 12 years now......and tracked it/modded it etc etc....even tho 99% of people said im mad and its mint already it was time for the old girl to get some proper love,rather than bolting on expensive alcons and diffs etc.

Im a panel beater by trade,so it does help...there was nothing major wrong,but if i left it another few years then it would be a bigger and bigger job...so thought to take it off the road for a year and get it done.

Having looked at some threads on here and doing some research i opted for the "on a spit on its side proper jobbie"...rather than on my back underneath!

How it was.....






Started the big strip down....i know nearly every nut and bolt on the evo 6,as ive fitted roofs,cages etc.




Looking sorry for itself...



Inner wings came up fine with a bit of a clean...




Car getting fully stripped to go on the rollover jig.




Having done a "few" rally cars with my old man...then i knew that buying a spit was the only option....deluxe mk2 mania spit...ace bit of kit....so easy.



Having looked at the car underneath,i knew it wasnt great and would need doing...not a show car but not a dog either...for a 16 year old 6 it was pretty decent.

When I see threads like this I'm so glad I bought myself an import, AND before anyone sets fire to me for saying that let me say why. BECAUSE I haven't got the skill to do this work or the patience, I have totally admiration and respect for you guys that do this, you deserve a medal.

Next up was rust bullet.....did alot of research and this was THE product to use....strict time scales and application didnt put me off.....so a 5 gallon £140 tub was bought

3 coats of rust bullet...each coat 2 hours apart...then seam sealed like a pro.

Did you do anything regarding the insides of the chassis legs, or don't they really suffer?
