They do need tucking up a bit more however the material can be manipulated when heat is applied so its pretty awesome stuff.

We did a bit of laning at the weekend and it did the job, Bit of catching on the front but that can be sorted with heat

Looking good. Like the camo theme.
You're right it needs more patches
Here's ours in blues

I like that! Love the defender arches too!

Going to get some grey soon just the grey I had didn't work very well so I'll flatten it back and start fresh :)

Well MOT was due end of Jan... So I had a poke around the places that a tester would poke...

Uh oh



So I chopped the worst of it out but it just kept coming! So this happened!



Got the fuel tank out the way today and will work on that to bring it back to life in the garage, might use some of the aluminium plate to make a guard we shall see!

Gave it a bash of the grinder and a clean with degreaser



Then since I knew this was coming been following a company called Buzzweld, the products look fantastic and the owner is really passionate about them which makes the difference, decided to have a go with RCP Primer for the first coat.
2 coats of this stuff and your sorted, It's got rust inhibitors and it levels so well after one coat tonight it's super smooth!



Will be keying the rest of the rear chassis and getting this stuff on!

Fantastic thread- I love what you've done with it so far!
I've just acquired a 2000 Jimny with similar headlight rust to yours- how hard did you find it to cut out and patch there?
Also, is the RCP primer spray or brush on? :)

Thanks all! Regards to the RCP I brushed it on but it can be roller'd (I may try this on the floor itself) and sprayed! If you spray it you need compressed air and a spray gun tho as they don't do it in a can (yet I can imagine there working on it!)

Check out there Facebook Buzzweld, some of the products on there are insane for protection I'm thinking about the cavity wax next

Thanks mate. Are you leaving it as the primer or doing a top coat too? What quantity do you reckon a Jimny needs?
