Small update tonight, took apart my mondy calipers today and gave them a sand blasting at work Im really surprised how they came out. Some area's are slightly more 'pitted' than others due the rust being sat on them for 6-7 months while not being used! Not going for a smooth finish though when painted, gona leave it 'textured'.

 

How they started out.

Drivers side is a bit rough along the bottom ( where the jack would sit) Passenger side is prob best to just replace the whole thing.

Right, now for the rear bumper. Fitted in place with spats tapped in place (just to get an idea)

As it happens I've decided to blend them in.

Correct me if Im wrong but is this the chassis rail?? Passenger side, needs some attention, Hopefully nothing too major :rolleyes:

 

Also to follow tomorrow are pics of my painted calipers.

 

Comments as always. :cheers:

 

Also forgot to say I removed the exhausts in order to fit the bumper. Was a right touch really, I was prepared to grind them off but on closer inspection found I could undo some clamps and off they came....RESULT :cheers:
