Hi all,

You may or may not remember that I bought a low-ish miles TF back in November, but was disappointed to find rust in all of the wheelarches (photo attached of one of them)

I've had them repaired at a classic car restoration specialist - now I'm just praying that the rust doesn't come back. I have over the last couple of days coated them in Bilt Hamber Dynax UC to help stop the stone chips and keep the water out. (After photo also attached)

I've also had fun driving the car across the South Downs (again some photos attached). It would be great to meet other owners around Southampton/Winchester at some point.

I look forward to more miles in the TF and continuing to be part of the T Bar Forum!

Matt

I'll find some more photos of the repair before I coated it in Dynax UC. The repair was carried out by Paul Baker Custom Metalwork in Eastleigh.

Nice looking car!
If you want to keep mud out of the repaired area between the lower front wings and the plastic wheel-arch liner, you may want to try my cheap "Mud Excluder" sticky-back-plastic trick. Se phots attached: It is important (IMO) to keep a vent hole free at the bottom, to prevent a build-up of condensation behind this plastic.
