    Pictures of my refurbished rear suspension and subframe assembly. Treated surface rust spots on floor pan at the same time. Some parts were sent to Maldon shot blasting and powder coating. Other parts were done at home. Treatments used were Bilt Hamber hydrate 80, Rust-o-leum smooth gloss black, Rust-o-leum automotive lacquer for the plastic and inner arch liners, and Dinitrol underbody wax. The R129 is quite possibly the easiest car I've ever worked on. DSCF1947.JPG DSCF1950.JPG DSCF1960.JPG DSCF1996.JPG DSCF1999.JPG
