Thanks Jorge, I appreciate the comments and the rear wheel arch spats turned out a lot better than I expected.
Regards Brian.

After a couple of coats of Eastwoods extreme chassis satin black I changed out My existing wiper arms and blades for the aero arms and blades.
I really should have done this when I first got my TT in 2015!!!

Also gave it the clay bar treatment and finished off with some Bilt Hamber speed wax, again something else I should have done sometime ago :( :(

The last couple of weeks I decided to tackle some small areas of corrosion under the rear wheel arch liners.

These were rubbed down and treated with Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80, then coated with some upol flexible seam sealer, primed and then base coat and clearcoat.

The following are a selection of photos taken during the process, starting with the areas of corrosion.

Wheel Arch liners refitted after a clean with Bilt Hamber surfex hd and then treated with Autoglym vinyl and rubber care, attachment screws taken back to bare metal and then primed with BH electrox and top coat of Eastwoods extreme chassis satin black, not too bad for 19 years old.

So it’s almost a year ago that I picked up a used front subframe from a Mk1 TT breakers in Blackburn. This subframe I left with a company in Preston who stripped the paint off it carried our a chemical corrosion removal process and then powder coated it for me..

After 10 months I finally got round to removing my original subframe and installing this refurbished one. In addition to the subframe I also replaced the forward coupling rods ( drop links ) and cleaned up the dog bone mount and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

I also cleaned up the small forward level sensor linkage while it was off.
