One liberal coating in seal sealant, anti rust primer and under seal later, it almost looks the same as before!!

An excellent 2 days work.

Will be booking some more time at Ramp It Up to take both front wings off and remove the flower beds from behind them, before treating the visible surface rust and dealing with what I can't see.

Stone chip to bottom sections and tidy up the flaking paint around the arches. Replace top wishbones if I have time.

Will be good to get all the rust dealt with before moving onto suspension.

Looks identical to what we just fixed on the Nevada. We couldn't find a part so just fabbed up some steel and welded it in. I am taking it that this is common on MX5s?

Ha! Too late. Dad did a nice job with some sheet metal and the mig.
Might need some of those rear panels though.
