    I have the common problem of the front steering rack pipes rotting, they have not yet leaked or anything but are looking pretty bad. I was thinking of hammeriting them and then placeing some pipe covers around them ( the type that go around radiator pipes). Anyone done anything else to protect them? The partners Fiesta is a mk7 with more miles than mine on it and a similar setup and hers still look new!

    I think so pal.... Mine look similar to yours although I've sanded down the rust, cleaned then treated to some rust prevention.
    Deciding to replace the pipes when I get chance, then coat in some hammerite before fitting.
