Fitted the sunroof panel:



From inside:



Applied clear silicone all round to make sure no water gets in as that would be rather annoying:



Started applying the Dynax in the interior panels as well,passenger side roof first:



Before:





After:







Took the dashboard out,will I ever remember how to get everything back in many months time? Probably not.



Just out of curiosity weighed the sound deadeniing removed at 5,5kg (will be putting some new one in though).



Dashboard brackets were looking pretty tired so put them in the Deox-C bath,before:









After:









Where the ariel is originally fitted there was some surface rust so took care of that and coated with the Electrox.

Before:







Top and clear coated the wiper arms:







While I was at it also freshened up the caliper bolts for the Brembos (the other two I was able to buy new OEM ones):

Before:











Wasn't liking the finish of the brushed Hammerite on the middle part of the rear axle (and also with time found better paints to use) so sanded that down and coated in antrachite:









Freed up some space in the engine bay,before:





The nut behind the servo was a pain to undo but got there in the end:



After:



Fender driver before:







Removed the canister bracket for ease of work,will be using two M5 rivnuts to re-install it:





The summer have killed the rest of the Electrox I had in tin form,very rubbery and a mess to apply,so sanded that down and painted with the spray instead:





After:









Primed:





Removed the bracket on the strut top passenger side as not needed and looks cleaner:





Missed some rust spots and pitted rust on the front driver arch so worked on that,before:









I've used the Hydrate 80 here prior to painting but forgot to take a picture.





Back on the rear arch I've used Hydrate-80 to treat pitted rust (was generous with the area of application) and coated with 2 coats of Electrox:









Moved the engine to free up some space so loaded it in the car,rear suspensions not too happy lol:





Before on the driver side engine bay:









After 1 application of the gel:

Thank you,appreciate the comments.
I'm doing as much as I can without going insane as the garage I'm currently renting is up for sale and I will need to leave at some point and try to find a new one.

Back to the car,another application of the gel and not much left:





Before,scuttle panel:



It's not 100% bare metal as didn't want to go insane as already took a lot of time due to the limited space I had to sand by hand mostly.







Electrox:

Credit where it's due, you've got more patience than me! I'm going to have my 106 blasted (underside and engine bay).

Looking good though pal! You just need to get yourself a welder now.

Probably more obsession than patience lol,blasting is a good idea though the engine bay can be done easily manually,I would hate to strip the underside with a drill lol,I will just be doing small areas where coating has failed and rust present and leave the rest as it is.

Will invest in a welder once the metal is treated,was looking at something like the Sealey MIGHTYMIG150 which seems decent for the price but haven't decided yet,supposed to be doing some welding with the course I'm attending (Motorsport level 3) so that will definetely help getting started.

Rear passenger arch before:







After a few hours (these 2 holes at the top were already present which is rather annoying):





Will use the Deox now.

Gave the rest of the arch a clean with the Surfex,it doens't look bad although would look better in black epoxy,not sure I can justify the effort tough as it will take quite some time to get all of the underseal off,might just give it a coat of the Dynax UC I don't know...







On the driver side instead decided to remove some more metal as could feel some rust behind it with my fingers:





Arch should be good now for the gel to remove the last rusty bits then I can prime it.

Top coated the bonnet brackets,will use this shade of grey for the engine bay and interior and not anthracite anymore (fake news,not final color):





Changes in shade with different lighting,for now,I like it a lot.



Seam sealed and overcoated the scuttle panel:

















And on the driver fender,kinda unecessary this one but I don't care,where I see a seam I put sealer on it,also left some drain on the right should water get in it can go out.

A moment of silence for my drill that died yesterday after 1 year and 3 months of service.

Treating the interior with S-50 as well,some pictures of the before.

Wax coming out on the other side of the seam nicely.

Found some corrosion on the bottom,ground that down with 60 grit and will get treated with Hydrate-80 and then the wax:
