im thinking of going back over it all using the bilt hammer oxy-gel as i think its better.
im also thinking of then going over after its all as clean as i can get it with the bilt hammer hydrate-80, its a long term protector/treatment i think, has anybody got any experience with hydrate-80
link
also wondering wether its worth removing the tank like neil did.

Hydrate 80's good if you have light corrosion still left - it forms like a plastic film over the steel and has corrosion converters in it too, but if you've got the steel spotless I'd just go straight over it with either Etchweld or electrox (or whatever equivilent you've got) the etchweld will bond better but the electrox will protect even if it gets chipped, so it's a personal toss-up between those.

I did the roof of the gt6 with hydrate 80 after a quick wire brush, to test it - the car's been outside 2 years and is rusty as fook, bits are falling off... 2 coats of hydrate converted it, coated it, and it's still good 2 years later.

well ive had another couple of hours on it with the wire brush drill today, mainly concentrating on the chassis box sections that are near the bumpstops.
its starting to look like im getting somewhere with it now:



this is the area that needs doing most, i peeled back all the underseal and seam sealer from here as it had started to lift and the rust was just starting underneath.





ive ordered some bilt hammer oxy gel and some bilt hammer hydrate 80.
i plan on going over it again with the oxy gel and then after the last cleanup when im happy with it i wil treat it with the hydrate-80 before underseal and paint.

(im resizing at the moLOL)
nearly ready for paint, i went back over it with the bilt hammer oxy gel, it is superior to the hammerite stuff i used before.


after the final rust removal treatment, i gave it 2 coats of bilt hammer hydrate-80, its there to kill and protect from rust in the future, its overpaintable also, it sends metal a kinda funky purple colour!





i left it 48 hours and got it all masked up and ready for the paint.
the first coat was using u-pol acid etch primer, i then used 3 tins of u pol gravitex witch is a rough finish stonechip shield, its great stuff and gets a factory finish look! i also used a tin of hammerite stonechip shield then went over it all in a standard primer!
its great spraying, i love it, it seems so thereputic, pity it costs so much per can.
here is after primer ready for the paint:






and now for the manstone, took 4 cans of paint from halfords for me to do itShock then i went over it a day later using a large can of laquer Big grin:



i fitted a new earth cable that connects to the backbox joint!:



also treated and painted the exhaust bracket



i tried not to put the paint on too thick where the beam mounts fix













its a bit of an improvement comapred to before:

i now just neeed to deal with the mess from the masking tape :Sad







ive ordered a few more parts from pug to finish off and i will be collecting my fully refurbed beam with some shiny bits on! this week

yeah no problems id prefer a dime bar though mate!
washed it today and the jetwash removed the tape but left a sticky residue!
autoglymne instant tar remover did a easy job of removing it and left it shiny aswell, i then went over both sides of the car with a autoglymne clay bar kit, first time ive used a clay bar and i wasnt expecting good results at all with the slight overspray dust on the car but holy shit, its left it clesner than it ever was and thats before polish!
the paintwork on this car is better than on the 4 year old mondeo we have, except for 2 tiny chips and a few troley dents, theres also an area on the p/s now at the bottom that looks like my 2 year old little angelic girl got her pram stuck and went on a crazy manic tantrum trying to remove it!! as theres about 6 tiny little dents all together within 8 cm square!
it would be a shame to have it resprayed as the painbtwork is excellent other than the tiny dents and stonechips.
thanks carl, cant wait to feel what a brand new gti6 feels like!!Big grin
