Was thinking to get the entire catalogue fm Nismo in regards to the underbody but daymn that got me worried, is it really worth going that route? We have better weather conditions here in Cyprus which I assume plays a major role but still for 2k miles the arm condition progressed surprisingly fast!

There definitely would have been more contributing factors such as storage conditions (humidity etc etc) for it to get in that state in just 2000 miles.

My underside has the full Nismo parts since 2016

Bad luck Toni. Seems like your middle name should be Rust too just like Busters who always seem to have rust following him around.

During my ownership the car was stored in a dry de-humidified garage under a indoor cover. After two outings when it might have picked up salty deposits, the entire underneath was thoroughly cleaned as well as the bodywork. I fear that it was the original application that was inadequate and Toni realises it.

It is a good thing that Toni and I are the best of friends and this scenario has increased the friendship and trust between us.

(edit) my bad I didn't realise you bought the car back so probably dont know how it was stored.

So is this a bad batch from Nissan perhaps? Maybe drop them a message.

samgtr's pic above doesn't look to have underseal applied on top of the Nismo parts, it just seems like the OEM silver coating and doesn't look anywhere near as bad?

Its been driven, not alot in the last year but in 2017 i used it few times but then i do get under it to clean.

But thats it, how a car is stored is important as in a brick no heated garage or outside you will get humidity moud and all sort on parts.

I drove in a bit of rain also when getting it from Abbey

it is all a bit of a joke though. There's Zero rust on the suspension components on my Father in laws Qashqai so why isn't a Nismo part built to the same standard? Why isn't a powdercoated and treated part not the same or better.

It seems to be the message, you can treat rust but you can't resist it. Only way to do that is to stop using the car, which defeats the point of treating it in the first place.

I empty a 10L de-humidifier every 4-5 days from my garage so feel that also has a part to play even on cars lucky enough to live in one.

A heated garage and a dehumidifier go along way to keeping the rust at bay, and not driving it in the rain, also I only clean mine when I have a show on, it's not good for it to be cleaned all the time.

The original rust treatment simply hasn't held up - whether it was poor application or poor product is open to debate. But the Nismo suspension parts really amazed me, literally 2000 miles in 2 years from brand new. Let's face it, the car is going to be driven now and again so why should they be so flakey?

In no way do I want John blamed I know he stored the car well. This time, I am confident the car is getting rust-proofed on a whole different level. I will replace the Nismo parts with new I think, but this time protected.

Glass blasting the underside, to totally remove all of the POR15 and surface rust. Really pleased with the result.

I think they thought they were doing a good job, they just don’t know what a proper one is.

Attention to detail, even on small sensors metal bevel is removed, blasted, zinc plated and refitted. Amazing.
