Winter Refresh

Its been a few years since the car has had a full nut and bolt underside re fresh, so thought it about time to send her off to have any surface rust and addressed and have the underbody fully protected.
The car is dry stored and in great condition for its age (55k) and only used 2-3 times a year but something Im always conscious of after buying rust buckets previously. After a bit of research I came across http://www.underbodyprotection.co.uk/, few phone calls later with Michael, he was all about addressing the cause and protecting rather than patching over which was exactly what i wanted. He has experience on working on Evo's and was fairly local.

Whilst my car was there he even inspected and turned down two other Evo owners who were looking for a refresh due to the bad state of cars and being beyond repair..

Just got the car back after a week, and very happy with the results.
Some pic's below of before, during and after.

I've also purchased a Evo 9 front bumper and had that sprayed along with some carbon side skirts, and rear bumper spats, Whiteline ARB's which i'll fit once the sun comes out. until then back in the garage

Gear oil fluid changed
LS transfer box oil
RB660 brake fluid over the 600 last time .
Fresh Fuchs 10/50 pro s +mitsi filter
Auxillary /drive belt changed .
As busy in work etc i just couldnt be arsed doing all that myself so let my local mechanic do it
Then in december i got the ACD/AYC pump removed with much effort at Todds ( mr evo specialist ) ...its been acting up every summer/warm weather last 2 or 3 years . I had a used replacement in shed for a year but that didn't seem to be working as it should either
So currently a rebuild is in progress to be sorted soon .
Got the Gayc fluid changed in the diff while there .
Need to get a rear caliper bolt that sheared off helicoiled also before NCT/MOT ...
Will need to tax the bastid then as none since end october .
Have plans afoot for few other bits as one is never finished modding

Changed the alternator and belt on the X. Now removing all the seized bolts and other surprises left by the past owner. The pop rivets holding all the undertrays together was a nice surprise.

I'm going to use an engine lift and drop it down then use the engine lift to raise the car up to then drag engine out all complete.
