What a sexy backend you have there! Good luck with the resto project, couldn't think of a better car to start it on.

OK so I had the front arch liner off this evening to see what we're dealing with. I've seen some DC2's with a fair bit of rot on the lower end of the inner arch panel. Thankfully this car isn't one of them. A few light bits of surface crud to sort but there's nothing in there that the Bilt Hamber armory can't deal with.









Worst of it is slightly further forward on the towing eye mount. All sortable though.



Will get it cleaned back tomorrow and then start sorting the localised areas. Doesn't look like the previous owner was a massive fan of cleaning the arches!

Wishbones, upright etc have a bit of surface crud but suspect they'll clean up well and once I've gone over the complete shell I'll start swapping them out for some freshly powder coated items.

OK, a bit more progress tonight. Apologies for the photo quality, I think the fumes must be getting to me!

Cleaned the arches out, rubbed back the small amounts of surface corrosion and then gave them a couple of coats with Hydrate 80.







Then it was on with 3 coats of BH Epoxy Mastic.







So that's the drivers side done. On to the passenger side next front arch next.

Wow cracking looking car in the petrol station shot!!

Love it.

BH products are great mate, I did the underside of the Clio 182 last year and the rear end of my CRZ with Hydrate 80 followed by black hammerite smooth and last coat of Dynax UC

Dynax UC is a brilliant protective coating.

Liking the mastic poobah, I didn't think you got it in white?
Might get some in black for that extra bit of protection when I get round to doing the CTR

Thanks. I think Bilt Hamber do the Epoxy Mastic in 3 colours now, black, white and I think red. Provides a really hard durable layer. Tempted to add a little Dynax UB over the top but really liking the factory fresh look of the white arches. Maybe UC is the way to go instead.

Love these cars! This is going to be an interesting thread

Wheel arches look nice and protected now, wouldn't you be better of dropping the springs and mounts out to protect behind them though?

That's for another day. The sections up behind the struts can wait until I do the powdercoating of all the suspension kit. There's no current issues there so happy for those sections to wait until I drop it all out rather than trying to do half a job with it fitted.

Nice Certainly no point stripping twice.
