Had to have a new front exhaust pipe fabricated and fitted in stainless steel today. Undertray was a pig to remove, but gave me insight to see the front subframe, once the undertray was off, could really have a good look once the old front pipe was removed by the fabricator, as template for the new one. My subframe was really in good condition, the front box section at the front just had slight surface rust on edges, but no serious corrosion of any concern.
I have decided to leave the undertray off and will think prior to the scottish winter, will have a full protection coating session to the front subframe. Rear subframe just a little dirty with no rust.
For a 159 appraoching 7 years old, not a bad result.
