Yes I've got a waxoyled MK1 MR2. Anybody who knows these cars know that their Italian steel rots from day one, LOL. Anyway it's an import (in 2000) of a 1987 car, and it is MINT underneath. It's had two applications of waxoyl since import.

I thought waxoyl is supposed to be used for panels and cavities only as people use rubber materital for underneath the chassis? As i thought if waxoyl on underneath only it may get wash away easily?

The stuff I've had on is like a thick coating, ain't no way a bit of road water is going to wash it away. It dries like a thick crust. I'm not saying it's better than a rubberized treatment, only that it has been great on the MR2.

Bitumen or rubberized coatings can seal in electrolytic dirt and allow corrosion to continue.
Waxy coatings can stop corrosion from developing or continuing but need to be reapplied from time to time depending on how much use a vehicle gets.

LOL @tonigmr2 - I used to have Italian MR2's as a student, aka X1/9's.
They were fun but you could stand and watch them rot away before your eyes!
MR2's were a bit better built, probably!

Yes, since then I've clouted the splitter

I'm also getting some hoses and engine bay bits painted.

The PVC original is a lot more resilient than FRP. Maybe worth going to an original to avoid this sort of problem again, Toni.

In all honesty whatever I have on there gets a hard life, it's why I've never gone carbon! I view it as a consumable hence the GF!

Well I've got myself in a pickle. My MOT ran out at the paintshop, didn't realise until I went to re-tax it. They have an mot place next door but it failed on emissions. Oh yeah faulty lambda, arse! Now I need to transport it to a GTR specialist. Anybody recommend good transporter?

Unplug the lambda sensors and see if it will pass a retest, if the engine is healthy and fairly standard it may well pass emissions in open loop.

Don't forget you can also drive a car to a booked MOT appointment legally. So if you booked an MOT at or next to your chosen Mechanic (GTR specialist or otherwise) you could just drive it there.

Yeah they are unplugged but car still failed. Engine is standard. I know I can drive to an mot appointment but all the specialists are miles away.

if the GTR specialist has booked your car in for a MOT, when its fixed, in say a weeks time, is that legal?

Ha! I see your in Herts, so local.

Toni if I its just a lambda, its not a specialist job, a "trusted" garage would be find. I appreciate this might be harder to find than a specialist.

I assume the car still has the cat in.
