    To be honest there's little point. They do get deep cleaned and wire wheeled. Blasting causes issues of contamination and damage to sealing and bearing surfaces and is costly to have it done so that doesn't happen!

    All I'm doing really is trying to prevent corrosion getting worse and that's a real problem with mag ally. That's why spending daft money on case prep and painting is not long term sensible. Waxoyl or similar will probably do a better job as it moves as the cases expand and contract.
    Sooooo. Short answer...remove all the oily crud, prepare the surfaces and remove loose crap, zinc paint then wax treat and wax spray every couple of years after....
    It's a tatty old gearbox after all...

    Incidentally, bus boxes are far more robust than T3 cases generally. Except the very late heavy aluminium cases which hardly corrode at all. Cost engineering again:rolleyes:

    Sadly the not-so-mighty-these-days Salisbury got knocked out at the 2nd QR to Oxford City a couple of weeks ago :(

    Hampton got through qualifying last year - hoping for the same this year.
    Great little stadium just a ten minute walk from home.

    And you’re allowed beer in the stands.

    Yes mate. Others have had new paths done but I want to fix / replace the missing tiles and keep it original.

    I've used my 'mod' super powers for you :)
    I think you have to choose 'full image' or 'thumbnail' when you upload a photo, or else it defaults to thumbnail.

    I was really nervous....the operation took all of 10 minutes....that was 10 minutes of the surgeon shouting at me to relax and stay still.
    Didn't feel anything other than what felt like a constant flow of water over my eye.
    36 hours on, no pain and can't believe how clear my sight is.

    Where did you have it done, I might be having to have one in the not too distant future?
