Well I have finally got the clocks back into PEX and think they look better than the old yellow faded white ones.
Colour and brand coordinated with the rest of PEX and has freshened it up. :D

I know that this is old news to those of you who are my friends on Facebook but back in June and July last year I thought the shell inside and out are in great condition and that the shell was resprayed in two pack back in 2012.
I thought that I haven't done any work to under side of PEX since I have owned him in the last six years even though he has been garaged.
So I thought under sealing is ok but then you have to keep applying it every year and that's just not my bag, so I bought a big can of red oxide (military grade) and a few cans of blue Hammeright and a new wire brush and got to work.
I spent along time on the prep work as I had to get that spot on and started to apply the paint and started at the back of the car and finished a month later on at the front.
I know its a bit extreme painting the underneath but when I do come to sell PEX I want the new owner to know that it is as good under the car as it is on top.
The under side of PEX had very little rust which is excellent and it is solid.
In total he has had two coats of red oxide and two coats of blue Hammeright smooth so well protected.
Here are some pictures of the work through the project from start to finish.

Then once the whole of the underside was primed with two coats it was then two coats of Hammeright blue smooth.

This is now the finished project hope you liked the pictures I know it's a bit different to paint the underside but it will last longer than wax oil.

Thanks to my good friend Pete AKA Dragonmuzz coming over to help getting PEX back on his wheels ready for being back on the road for this year.
We got the oil cooler fitted and I had to remove the stock front towing eye and the charcoal canister because they were in the way of the oil cooler so I bought and fitted a Sabelt Tow strap.
I have fitted my new OMP lower strut brace which I know can scrape the ground at times and we also fitted the anti roll bar back on with new fixtures and replaced the bushes with new Powerflex ones.
Put in new Mobil 1 oil and fresh coolant and he fired up first time not bad seeing as he has been sat there for a year, there were no signs of any water leaks or oil from the cooler or pipes.
All electrics worked apart from the near side front indicator and side repeater but I expect that the concections could do with a clean.
We put the front wheels back on and then drove him out the garage and left him running to make sure there were still no more leaks and to see if the fan kicked in which it did.
The next project is so front bumper work as I have to modify it so that I can put the toe strap through and make a vent for the air to get to the cooler so I have ordered some new cutting blades for my Black and Decker wizard and some new mesh so that I can apply this one the vents are done just to complete the look.
