      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    I had this problem on my 52 plate...the main cause of the problem is MUD !! The MUD retains moisture and over time it eats away at the metal, get yourself a hose & wash out all the MUD & C... that has collected over the years, i took the arch liners out so I could remove the last scrap of dirt. When it's all dry (next day) get down to Halfords & buy some WAXOIL black underseal and coat all the wheelhouse (especially under the lip of the arch), when that's cured (doesn't really dry) re-fit the liners. Now for the rust.....your going to have to rub down the area and treat with CURERUST & then fill / Paint. Sounds like a mammoth chor but will be worth all the hassle & save you a fortune later on !!
