Just something to think about.
Mines ended up getting 4 coats of rust bullet and topped off with 3m underseal.
Sorry rascal69 i've only just seen your comment, your right on the end of first page lol

I agree white doesn't stay nice but I do prefer white even dirty white to black or muddy black by the time its been on the th road with underseal/dinitrol.
Hoping the clear coat will keep stonechip nice, I only found out recently that stonechip isn't waterproof and really needs to be topcoated else it can yellow? unsure if that's true but I'm thinking of getting dinitrol clear put over the lot when I'm finished just for that extra bit of protection.

Stone chip can hold water, I wouldn't be using it on a rest unless I was going full factory OEM

Thanks, yeah everyone seems to be restoring there e6 lately. Will be the last of the models on the road imo especially the tmes
This is the last time I'm going todo it so doing it right well as right as I possibly can. If the rust come back like it did, it will be sold and il have to get something non jap - but I know il end up in an impreza again

Big load of updates/pictures coming next couple days, I hate my pc. Id afford a new one if the evo didn't need so many parts

Thanks

The rust will only come back if the prep isn't done right.

That doesn't count driving it in salt constantly though
