Surface rust and plastic trim

Recommended Posts


My car has some rust under the black plastic that is glued to the car, does anyone know how to get the plastic bits off and back on so I can remove and fix the rust? Any tips on getting rid of the rust would be great too - it's only surface rust :smile: thank you.

The arch ones are not normally glued, there are 2 lumps on the back that go into holes in the body


If someone broke it in the past it may have been glued


Get a small flat head screw driver and tape the tip and use that to tease the edges up and see if itll pop off


The long ones on the door have a foam adhesive on the back which can be bought

      After the breather pipe that goes out the crankcase into the oil separator what is the pipe that is supposed to come out of the oil separator, and where is it supposed to go?

      For sale is my Stainless steel exhaust that was custom made for my mk2 breadvan.
      Cat back system which consists of flexi pipe, centre silencer, and back box. Also 3 poly exhaust mounts and one rubber are included.
      The system was made by a company called custom chrome in Nuneaton and was designed to sit as high up as possible due to it being on a lowered car.
      The system is relatively quite (a bit louder than the standard system) during everyday driving but does give a sense of drama when you put your foot down. A really nice sound.
      Flexi pipe connection size: Internal 45mm external 49mm
      There is damage to the flexi pipe from scraping on speed humps and a small hole has developed as seen in the pics. The centre box also has some scrapes and dents. Also one of the clamps needs replacing.
      Local collection only
