Ahh bastard thing.

Seems her life by the sea has done a number on the old girl.

Rear shock mounts are quite crusty, not really accessible unless you're either made of rubber or can lift the body off the chassis.

Just something to check!

That may be considered rusty for a P38, but by most standards very clean for a 20 year old car near the sea.

That's what I was thinking. Bit of surface rust but nothing to worry about.

I've seen far worse, and I'm surprised that given Strangerover owns a D2 as well that he's considering the above to be serious. This for example (yes that is the carpet you can see through the floor from the wrong side)

Cheers gents!

It isn't the rust so much as it is the lack of accessibility to descale and treat said rust.

The upper shock brackets for example would ideally need the body lifting to either repair or replace.

I've given the chassis a good going over and the rear has taken a hammering!

Must of been launching boats before I bought it!

There are plenty of magic potions you can get on there. I like Bilt Hamber - their De-Ox Gel looks handy for this sort of location.

If you can't reach the rust with a paintbrush you can spray it.

Anything is better than nothing - even the old engine oil trick is better than leaving it!
