Wire brush the underside and apply some bilt hamber hydrate 80, as long as it’s just minor corrosion and nothing major
I don't know what civics you have been looking under but all of the 8th gens I've seen under are pretty damn rusty on the rear beams and the underside above that area, especially in the rear of the floorpan area.What's actually gone on the underside?
Would be keen to see as the Civic isn't much of a ruster unless it's the rear beam.
What exactly has it failed on? Get the other bloke to have a lookDo you think its worth getting a 2nd opinion. It wasnt the usual guy I use to do work. Been in contact with my usual guy and hes saying it might not be that bad??? Hes pretty good IMO. On the other hand I dont see why the other guy would say it was that bad if it wasnt. Iv had the car 4 years and we are relatively close to the water (within a mile)
Probably depends where the car lives normally and how much owners have done to the car from new.I don't know what civics you have been looking under but all of the 8th gens I've seen under are pretty damn rusty on the rear beams and the underside above that area, especially in the rear of the floorpan area.
I've had to give mine a good coating of Lanoguard to try and prolong it as the later gen civics are shite in performance vs the 2.2 engine unless you have deep pockets and want to buy an overpriced used 10th gen.
Get rid and move on to something better when you can afford it. There will be loads more like yours being scrapped soon as they're rot boxes with poor underseal.Already have the car in my driveway so cant get it up on ramps to have a look for myself. The car is probably only worth £700 I would think probably not even that. So the repairs would be just throwing money away IMO. The more I think about it the more Im pissed off it wasnt spotted at previous MOTs
