Bit more done. Classic corrosion spot just behind where the inlet resonator box goes inside the front arch. Took it apart and this one isn't bad at all. Just a light bit of surface corrosion which further enforces that this appears to be a good one.





So, usual process. Grind/sand the corrosion off then Hydrate 80 followed by Epoxy Mastic.

Had a spare half hour this evening so stripped out the passenger side front arch to see what we're dealing with.









Generally decent. A little surface corrosion around the mounting points for the arch liners (as there was on the drivers side) and some surface stuff on the top of the spring seat. All sortable pretty easily.

Getting happier the more I see of this car.

Each to their own. The UKDM model was the model I grew up seeing so it's the one I wanted. You also can't see the front end from the drivers seat which is the best place to be with one of these.

Minor update. Arch liners back in tonight.





I also did a little side job tonight on the rear upper strut brace. The standard colour is silver and mine was pretty scratched therefore I've refinished it in VW Carbon Steel Grey. Not 100% OEM however it does match the mounts of the front brace.
