First bit of rust, reckon it might clean up.

Internal floor flooded in waxoil but its certainly done a good job on this shell.

Started removing factory soundproofing, it has gone brittle anyway so will just use some silent coat.

Removed sound proofing from drivers side floor pans, It seemed alot harder this side. Just needs residue cleaning off with some petrol.

Rot found so far, ive gone round the mk2 with a screwdriver and these were the only soft spots in the factory underseal.

Worst of the rot is the battery tray think this might be down to battery leak which in turn took the paint of this area.

Bit of surface on drivers inner chassis leg, this should clean up.

Cool fair enough, what's your plans for this one, once the rust is all sorted? modded or standard..

Slightly modified, big bumpers respray etc, just going to see where it takes me.  Going to to strip underside for piece of mind and raptor it all black, I dont think ill find any more rot but we will see what happens. Going to try keep on top of this thread and on top of restoration the red one spiraled out of control really.

I like the sound of that, it will make a great little car from the sounds of it and you have a nice solid base really to start from, I have always loved the look of a MK2 but never bitten the bullet and bought one :(
