Last night got home a little early so decided to get to the splitter, with the
help of a mates orbital sander and his compressor. Made light work of it
with 240 grit pads.




Then once all sanded back and all flaked paint had been stripped and all stone
chip imperfections smoothed. I gave the excess dust a blow off with the
compressor line, and got to drilling out the holes for the cable ties.




Went with the typical drift fix patten and has surprisingly made it very strong.




Aiming to paint it tonight dependant on how cold it is, still deciding wether to
try and match the SMG paint or just go black considering its only a short term
fix until the Bomex bumper.

Handy hint fill the inside with expanding foam so if you hit it again it keeps some strength and you are able to get it home [thumleft]

Whilst the lip was off the car, I had booked with my mate to fit the new
item that I had been wanting to buy and have fitted for a while. To compliment
the Corbeau seats.





And fitted !





Scott did a fantastic job fitting them for me, and seriously undercharged me
but hey, mates since primary school and he's got a sick project s2000 so
knows the struggle [Very Happy]

Many may say that they are not ideal, and annoying for road use, I've heard all
the arguments trust me ! However what people are not taking into account was
the unusually high side bolsters on the Pro Series seat. This effectively stops
the lap belt actually sitting and tightening on your lap. Obviously dangerous
and I'm not wanting to take risks. After research and advice from many others
that have fitted 4 points into their MR2's along with Corbeau's tech team
confirming this is the correct fitting, Im happy.

So then we were back to finishing the lip, in hindsight maybe some filler primer
could have helped in area's, but this fix cost me £22 in total and considering
the lip is beyond the worthiness in fixing properly and my intention for a
aesthetic change as I have said, I'm more then happy.

First coat of Filler laid down.



First coat of SMG from a rattle can laid down.




A mate had helpfully laid down the coats of lacquer whilst
I was abroad for wor leaving it to harden over the week And then re-fitted onto the car after




Not too bad ! its darker then the SMG on the remainder of the car, but only
slightly and will work for now for sure !

One little job also completed over this weekend just gone was a little trial
that I discovered over the internet to try and bring life back to the T-Bar
seals, to stop the incessant leaks that are getting worse and worse.



This was actually imported from Japan ( Via Ebay ) and is a regenerative
rubber grease. Hopefully bring some life back to them and maybe help seal.
its the first thing I'm willing to try to avoid having to fork out big bucks on
new seals !

First of, clean all dirt from around the seals. Had these to hand and put them
to work, pulling off a surprising amount of black dirt.



And then rub in like Ainsley Harriott basting a sexy chicken with your fingers,
I covered all the seal, and not just the area's that have been leaking.





The passenger side at the rear ( as above ) is by far the worst, and no wonder
considering that gap !

Its worked marginally, Ill continue to apply over the summer, along with
adjusting the windows to sit higher that i've been aiming to do.

Now onto some exciting news for the 2018 Face lift.




Genuine Bomex for a very good price. Having it delivered to Fensport next
week and will collect along with the other parts I'm sourcing, ready for the
new look. [Very Happy]
