While doing mines I wanted white and was in big discussions with guy doing it and him seeing how it looks couple of years down the line strongly recommended not going white as it would show some orange spots in time which will ruin the look and also it was big expensive job stripping it , replacing everything.
Just something to think about.
Mines ended up getting 4 coats of rust bullet and topped off with 3m underseal.

I agree white doesn't stay nice but im hoping the clear coat will keep stonechip nice and clean.
I'm thinking of getting dinitrol clear put over the lot when I'm finished just for that extra bit of protection.

Stone chip can hold water, I wouldn't be using it on a rest unless I was going full factory OEM

Thanks, yeah everyone seems to be restoring there e6 lately. Will be the last of the models on the road imo especially the tmes
This is the last time I'm going todo it so doing it right well as right as I possibly can. If the rust come back like it did, it will be sold and il have to get something non jap - but I know il end up in an impreza again

Back end fully stripped back, nearly ready for rust bullet. Just picking out the seams and some hard to reach areas to strip back

.









This area I think if I had sand blasted would of come through.

The rust will only come back if the prep isn't done right.

That doesn't count driving it in salt constantly though

Some before pictures of my floor pan





Stripped back and coated with rust bullet, seam sealed and then I done another coat of rust bullet on the outer sills as I forgot todo it first time round








First coat of white on




Next step is another coat of white once this one has hardened, then clear coat. Then I'm going to be stripping the front end down to repaint all the subframe etc

Its just a long and tiring process.

Don't give up on it now you have done an amazing job so far and fair play how many of us would do this lying on our backs with car on axle stands? But i bet most would like their evos looking as nice underneath. Keep the updates coming

It's a labour of love pal, just keep at it the results speak for themselves in the end. I have been doing mine for just over a year now

Cheers everyone, I'm just tired from doing it lol second time now not so much fun as the first.
I'm not removing my subframe now, I was planning on buying a quaife output shaft but couple bills have rolled in, + I had a decel whine so not sure what that was but hoping it was just needing an oil change as the old oil looked ancient.
When ive got the funds il pop transfer box off with subframe and do it over a weekend.
All my front arms and hubs are being cleaned up though, will add pictures at somepoint.
