The guys have given me a call and will be dropping the car back off at home with me.... Can't wait.....

I presume they will have it on trade plates to get it back and I won't be able to use it, no mud guards and lights. I will be able to prep and paint the rear chassis before the cage is fitted. I would also like to do something with the exhaust....

They're doing first class job Sniper - dead happy for you. Whats your plan of attack for the chassis, what products are you planning to use to clean it up?

Reece did a sterling job cleaning the chassis, he also coated the front half, I'll have to find out what in......

My choice would be Buzzweld stabilising primer and raptor top coat......

Cleaning would be manual, wire brush, grinder if needed.

It looks brilliant Sniper. That sounds like a really good approach to rust-proofing the chassis. I went with dinitrol for mine but if I were to do it again I'd use something like Buzzweld.

Two tins of Buzzweld CIO on the way, that should tidy the chassis, I'll do the axle too if there is any left... Lazy one coat approach but it is a good quality coating.

Terry has a couple of arches tucked away, he is going to fit those when the cage goes on, thanks for the suggestions though. I presume they will be similar to the ones on his green pick up.

The car has been home for nearly 72 hours....... As I'm high risk (bad ticker) I have had to quarantine the bloody car !!!!! Cleaning the interior and painting the exposed chassis rails will commence tomorrow.

Matt from " WKD Fabrications" sent a message this morning, the steel arrived yesterday and he is cutting / bending today....



If the cage is half as cool as the company logo, it should be a pearl....
