Not posted up any progress over the last 7 months of my car, i've put alot of hard work and hours into my car over the winter. Now she's all done i thought i would share my sweat and tears i shed over the winter! :mhihi:

First off sorry about the quality of some of the Pictures, i was working so my iPhone had to suffice, but you can still see what's happening :smthumbup

Ok so before she came off the road this is how my car looked.


Firstly Underseal

Now anyone contemplating doing a proper job and not just blasting everything, i would reccoment don't do it :mhihi: :mhihi: It's a NIGHTMARE.

I'll let the pictures do the talking, I used Dinitrol, i bought the whole kit with the rust convertor, Cavity wax, and underseal.

I don't drive the car in the rain, and it may be over the top, but i know what happens to these shells. And i want to keep mine mint.

The kit:

Using the rust convertor:

And underseal:


Cleaned Heatshield:

While i was doing the underseal i had a few other changes:

Whiteline ARB:

Adjustable drop links, and i also polybushed the car and cleaned all arms etc:

Just a load of shots of rebuild etc:

Few powdercoated bits:

(fuel pipe cover and front bumper bracket's)

I also cleaned + sprayed all bolts.

Engine Mount:

I think that is everything for underneath the car. Next up was the headlights, pretty simple job tbh.

Look's so much meaner IMO.

Next up i fitted a Ross Sport JMF 02 Dump,

This pipe is pure porn and the welds etc are spot on, didn't really want to fit it where its not on show :mhihi: :mhihi: :mhihi:

I can say now that it sounds GREAT.

Great job,mate.
This is the sort of car that I would like to buy, that somebody has cherished.
There are a few on here,that have been protected properly and had similar work done,on the underside.
Rest of your car looks great,too:smthumbup

The car really does look awesome, I have a Silver E9 FQ300 which replaced my E8, only had her a week... Really will be looking to get mine protected like yours underneath the car, you can tell a lot of hard work has gone in to it. I bet you are really pleased with the results. :smthumbup
