Righto folks,

I've been a bit absent with updates, been mega busy.. But finally the car was finished over Easter holiday!

I have sprayed a liberal amount of Dynax cavity wax into the sills and around/top side of the fuel tank.
Subframe, rear slam bar and ARB has been blasted, anti corrosive primer and black top coat by Lant Lane.
Everything has been refitted, and the car is booked in at Roddisons Motorsport for wheel alignment on Thursday, and yes sorry... That is an MX5 specialist hahaha..

Rear end has been treated with various steps, ending with two liberal coats of Dynax UB.

Various pics:

The finished product <3

Looks stunning!

Great job on the blasting/undersealing job - should keep it going for years.

Need to get mine done, typical british weather is putting me off up to now.

Did the Bilt Hamber stuff work ok in the cold damp conditions?

Thanks folks!
Over this summer sometime, I’m going to underseal the center section of the car using the car ramp at work over a weekend.
Front end will wait until I have my own house later this year, preferably in a garage over winter..

Luckily I encountered no seized bolts, which was a god send!

A tool that was essential for me in removing some of the guards on the rear end was a manual impact driver with Philips bit.
I borrowed one off a friend, but thinking about buying my own for future use, if I do buy one, you’re welcome to borrow it.
