What would the outcome be if nothing was done? How long till rust causes suspension problems? I only say this as I would not have noticed it if i hadn't taken spare wheel out. Mind you Bingo is 11 years yong now.
As a forum member,how can you possibly think of not doing it? 11 years of faithful service & you will let it rust? A pox on you sir,you are a cad & a bounder.:wave::whistle:
Steady on Ron.
I didn't say I wasn't going to do anything about it did I? I asked what would have happened if I hadn't noticed it. I was asking for the sake of other forum members. That is, is this something we should look out for. I intended to paint with hammerite, but as this is a torsion bar, and hence twists in use I was concerned that said paint may crack and come off again.
Oh and BTW while I love the old girl (the Bingo), there have been plenty of problems over the 11 years, so not quite as faithful service as it could have been.
It looks worse because the plastic coat is peeling and flaking off. It's the luck of the draw as some last forever and some break but any maintenance will help the appearance and while you are doing it you will notice any problems before they develop. Paint it or oil it after you clean it, it's your choice which you prefer the look of.
So where does this bit go then ?
