I'd say it's an excellent idea Simon, I always spray cavity wax in when I do the job to prevent the exposed end of the bolt corroding

I think I may go a completely different route I'm trying to see if I can source a subframe with everything bolt on to it from Greece they tend to fairly rust free from there and just swap the whole lot instead is there any difference between models I know that non v6 post project drive cars had the rear anti roll bar deleted but this shouldn't matter right ?

I reckon you could do that, however a little expensive perhaps, and the logistics of having it shipped may prove problematic at the moment.

The job itself is fairly straightforward, and only requires a limited amount of tools to carry out the work.

Who are you using in Coventry?, perhaps Lates may be a better bet perhaps?

Drop him a line HERE

The parts I would most likely get for free ( family friend owns a rover shop there ) they don't really need those parts there as they almost never rot is just the logistics of getting them here which is the issue. I use gavin mg rover repair here for almost 2 years now and I have nothing but good things to say about him. Thanks for the recommendation though!
