Thanks Jamie, yes a cage has been on my mind for a while and glad I could sort it and not add weight. The question now is do I go the whole hog and remove dash, etc

have too say your doing a real good job with the plating
remember the more rust and **** you remove before the plating
the better your result will be....as you can see some of the rust inbedded after the plating....not having ago...but this is what happened to me...on my first go....best of luck

Cheers buddy, yes you are right its all in the preparation. I am getting better and quicker at it as I get to know what works but some of the rougher parts are almost impossible to get perfect. I am through the worst of it now though and can always go back and improve bits later. Thanks for the comments

My brother popped round yesterday afternoon so I tapped him up to help me with the last of the heavy work. Rear diff, sub frames, prop and fuel tank all dropped. Relieved that everything is totally solid with just a few bits of surface rust. Tank looks great as well and may have a crack at refurbing this in the next few weeks. Loads of the dreaded underseal to remove though so I cant wait to give the mbx tool a bash. The diff will go off to CliveW for a refresh while its off over the next few weeks.

Hey mate, I would advise chemically removing the black stuff first, if you MBX that off you will gum it up. Plus more importantly you will drive all the salt,dirt and grease in to all the seams.

Any recommendations Mita? I was hoping the mbx would just shift the lot. I might try a small area 1st and see how it goes?

Can't recommend this guy enough (Ian)

https://www.rust.co.uk

Have a read through the "how to" tutorials, this guy knows his rust. I chemically cleaned mine underneath using all his recommended products. Painful at times but worth it. I'm also using the Epoxy Mastic 121 from him for the underside paint

What made you choose this over the usual rust bullet Mita?

A long chat with Ian, but also some very sketchy reviews on RB. Plus I don't like the re coating window. Also 121 is 2 pack and bonds so much better. I've not used RB myself so it's not based on personal experience, however I felt the 121 was far superior. Plus Ian has been VERY patient with all my questions. And customer service for me is very important.

Thanks to D2 for these Evo 6 alloy rear arms to replace my OEM Evo 5 steel ones. They look loads better and I was surprised by the weight saving 3.3 kg (5.8 v 9.1)

Yes thats the plan. I guess the powerflex ones are the way to go?
