it,ll be a good idea to get yourself a electric sander [ uses triangle shaped sandpaper]
to get rid of the rust scabs before treating with what ever you choose.

ok small update spent a couple of hours on the under side witha variety of wire brushes, preparing the surface for protection and paint only managed to do a smallish section so far.



and i've had the exchaust in the lounge for the last couple of nights (to the misses delight), spent around 3 hours on it so far, slowly getting there.

So from this:



to this (so far):



Didnt realise my friend who owns the body shop has a sand blaster so will make life so much easier to prepare the hubs etc for painting once i get them removed.

i've found the following

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=220474591420

its a slightly different colour blue to the FRP, belive its the colour used on the fiestas but thinking it might be just the finishing coat i'm after

Just found this one now

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Genuine-Ford-P...item518a839e4e

Does anyone know which of the blue's is closest to the FRP colour

I'm a bit stuck at the moment as now not sure what protection to use under the blue spray paint, :? :?

Had orginaly looked at BILT-HAMBER WINTER CARE KIT

http://www.bilthamber.com/bilthamber-special-offers.php

However now not sure if to just use something like underseal and spray over the top ?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Tetra-Tetrosyl...item439b3d8e43

Peoples thoughts and other options requried as dont want to spend all this time and money on something that wont look or last.

bilt hambers hydrate followed by electrox will give you a decent surface to either paint or under seal, the electrox is a zinc based primer
good stuff just make sure your wearing a proper mask when painting as the vapours are not pleasant.
