    • If you have easy access to it with your lift - Get it all off! I am doing this in phases on my back under the car and wish id done it in one go now as every time i get down to doing the next bit, i find trouble.

      This was a blanking plug under the apparently intact looking rubber underseal.

      • Yes Steve, know your pain as I did the Avant on axle stands. That's the main reason I bought the lift.
        Luckily no holes (yet)

            • Are they tie wraps holding down the chips Never in my days have I seen that before.

                Not unusual if the ECU has been socketed, I never bother though and I’ve never had a chip fall out yet

                • That's a first for me too, there's absolutely no need to cable tie chips to their sockets.

                    • Nothing interesting to report on progress. I'm still working away underneath to get it all clean.
                      I thought it might take a couple of days but I think it's more likely a couple of weeks

                          Zinc primer (Bilt)
                          Epoxy paint (Novol protect)
                          Seam sealer (Bilt)
                          Epoxy underseal
                          Clear wax on hoses, wishbones, fittings etc (Bilt)
                          Should last well after that.
                          The original stuff has done a good job considering its over 27years old. I found patches of surface rust here and there, especially around seams at the back, mounting points and brackets that hold cables and hoses. The subframe mounts were completely full of dried soil. I've blown them out and will treat them to some cavity wax. I haven't found any holes which is a bonus.

                          • A break from cleaning the underneath.
                            Split the prop shaft and fitted a new centre bearing. It was a good fit and seems sturdy like the original.

                            • I got the bearing from Driveshaft Parts Limited. It was just under £30 delivered. I did buy a Swag one but it was complete rubbish.

                              • I bought the same one from memory from them. Initially had a febi bearing and it felt far too sloppy. These are much more like the OE version. Still not run my motor since fitting though!
