Boot floor in epoxy mastic and rear axle re-fitted

Quick update,refitted the rear axle,altough still needs a bit of work,to make the car mobile again and coated the rear arches and boot floor in epoxy from Bilt Hamber.

Garage
Nice work, personally I found it didn't protect against the elements that well after a year.

Are you talking about the Epoxy? Sorry no offence but I find that very hard to believe,do post further details if you could as I'm interested.

Won't be posting any updates anytime soon as had to move garage as it has been sold,I do have a garage where I live but been forbidden to do any work on the car.
I'm currently looking for a new space to rent but it's not easy,hopefully something will come up soon as I just can't stay away from it long lul.
Meanwhile I applied ACF-50 to all exposed metal to keep it rust free while stored.

How come?, is that some sort of clause for the house/area?

I have no idea,neighbour/s told agency I was working on my car,agency told me that's not allowed,and it's not because of the noise or anything of that nature as I've asked around,they just said I can't.

SUPERMIG150 for rust repairs and some chassis strengthening

Mainly for potholes mind you...

Now,I could just treat it with the S-50 which is advertised as able to stop existing corrosion but I believe this is too far gone for me to confindently use this method,what is left to do is just cut out the affected metal,not easy though as access is very limited but I should be able to find a way to do it.
Made some progress on the driver inside sideskirt before moving but didn't post it,took forever due to the lack of room but with a hand saw I was able to cut out most of the rotten metal,a little bit more work needed but I think I'm most of the way there.

Restored the previous pictures as the domain had changed address from org to cc so had to manually change it for every 700+ pictures,also had to do this on my mobile as my pc is not working,oh well,it's all done now,until next time they mess it up again.

Anyhow,I was unbanned from working in the garage so was able to do some work on the car again.

I'm working mainly in the underneath area as I knew the front floor strengthening plates weren't doing too good and wanted to see how much the corrosion extended,more below.

Tunnel before,can't see very well from the pictures but this had some corrosion in the seams and corners,nothing too bad though as it's orignally covered by the exhaust heatshield.

Start:





So far,will get back to it later:





Been also removing the studs that aren't used and prime for the moment to prevent any rust:



After:







Onto the strengthening plates,start passenger side:









First application of the Deox gel:





Second:



Driver side,this was the worst bit,probably the worst in the whole car that remained since I've start treating it (don't mind the sideskirt all cut up,S-50 was sprayed inside,hence the color):





Again,applied the gel:



Second:



So far,I did have to cut a small bit as the metal was very thin and small pinholes started showing:





At the back of these 2 strengthening plates there were two openings,covered in underseal which I have removed,that allowed me to get the Dynax S-50 inside to protect the other side as much as I can:





Also started filling the holes in the floor same as I did with the boot section as I like it better/cleaner once everything will be painted,don't think it will need drain holes once finished like I won't be taking care of it:







I wasn't really able to get a decent photo of the after so here it is,lol.



Underneath:
