  • you can normally tell if a pipe is stainless or mild steel with a magnet......a magnet is very atracted to mild steel....stainless is normally none magnetic....but even some stainless will be atracted to a magnet normally where a bend is formed in a pipe....has the molecular structure can change has its bent.......i bought some a2 grade stainless bolts......you can slightly atract them with a magnet....mild steel will jump at it like a red rag to a bull.....stailess steel varies alot depending on the aplication ....stainless pipes for the mgtf are normally advertised as a2 grade stainless steel

  • your floor pipes are steel, the stainless doesn't really lose their color, the subframes will be ok if you get a good drill with a wire brush on them, but for safety reasons, I would change the wishbones as some are known to have a fault that weakens them, use red lead and under seal on the subframes and they should come up like new, not an easy job but well worth the effort, I have seen them a lot worse than your's, has the engine cooling pipe been changed to stainless ? as these seem to go, I mean the pipe with the water bleeder on it? good luck, :broon: :broon:

  • Hi Nick.A bit hard to tell but I would say by the looks of them that they are standard ones ( not stainless ) . When I bought my TF 4 years ago the pipes looked like that and as I was wanting to uprate the H/G I changed to stainless . As for the rust on the subframe , I think you could do with a good wire brushing and a coat of rust converter of which there are many on the market. Then it's a case of painting with smooth Hammerite . The lower wish bones might be as bad on the inside where you can't easily get to so just do your best with them . My TF looked just as dry and unprotected as yours and was a bit of a pain in the arse to sort out . There are some who would say that taking the subframes out is easier than doing it in situ but that's not a job that many people can do ( Talkingcars, James is in the process of putting his back in I believe ) . I am sure there are folks on here who will suggest something better , just do your best .

    Do you reckon my pipes are the standard ones or stainless?

    Also, whilst you are looking at the car, how bad is the subframe? What would I paint or treat it with?

    Ignore the "oil leak" at 2 mins in. The drain plug is out, the inspection is referring to a previous leak when I had a camshat seal failure (I think)

    thanks!! :)

    Nick
