I use it near on once a week throughout the year, pressure wash the underside after every use. Get some funny looks at the jet wash lol

Yeah I wont let it rot, the underside is my main concern I don't even detail the outside anymore all my concentration is on underneath.

Now stocked up with rust bullet and stonechip, just waiting for the weather now.

Finally got the rear diff etc off, snapped one bolt in the subframe and 1 bolt in the rear upper arm mount that bolts to chassis. Will have to get the helicoil kit out
Rear diff mount polybushes all ordered, more rust bullet on the way, stonechip on the way as I needed more.
Now one thing I'm concerned about is the rear diff front mounting bolts that bolt to chassis they both rattle around in the frame, I can undo them etc but I assumed they would be welded in?

Anyway here's some pics of the rusty stuff.

So as you can see its a mess, i've got surface rust where I didn't even have rust. I blame the jenolite rust treatment, if you look at my first posts you can see the difference.
But I now have 2 coats of rust bullet on and today I'm seam sealing and painting the arches and diff mounting points. Will strip the rest of rear end during the week and rust bullet and paint the rest. Wish I could just spin the car and strip the lot but where I live there not fond on cars being worked on, atleast this way I can bolt the suspension back on if I get any complaints

Getting rid of the brake and fuel lines, there a little rusty and for my future plans I would like braided fuel line, possibly going to route it all through the car if I can get the courage to drill my shell

I used a brush to apply it, easy to use but it doesn't come off your hands for a couple days lol

It looks very good now its sealed and painted, il get some pics up later if I get the chance. But yeah when you start its gets daunting as how many parts need to be stripped and cleaned up before refitting.

Second and last time I'm doing it though lol

How much rust bullet did you use and did you paint out side or in a garage?
Sorry about all questions but I'm trying to find out as much as pos about using rust bullet before I commit to mine

Used roughly 250ml of rust bullet for both arches, that's 2 coats each.
Bought 3 500ml tins for this project.

Here's the first coat of white stonechip, forgot to take a picture of the seam sealing.
I use 1 can of stonechip per arch, then wait a couple days and use another full can to get a nice thick buildup. Tetrosyl stonechip
