Evening all
We've just bought an MX5 after listing after one for years. It's a 2003 Mk2.5. I am interested in getting it waxoyld etc and sealed underneath, and the odd bobble of rust seen to. Where's best in Fife/tayside?

Welcome.
"The odd bobble of rust" won't get fixed with Waxoil or underseal.
On these particular cars, these odd bobbles can indicate eruptions in the making later on anyway, and the last thing to do is seal in the problem..if there is one.
Photos would be good, and since I'm just over the water in Falkirk (if you want). I'll meet up for a bun & a coffee and have a look.
There is always an imbecile you never bargained for. Usually in a Tescon carpark with a dented Zafira minus hubcaps

Welcome to the forum :D

These cars very susceptible to rust unfortunately. :?

I went to great lengths with my last car sorting the rust. Best of luck getting yours sorted. Any pictures you can show us?
