Hello

Great work on the rear diff metal chassis work .. well done

although mine does still look like that after a year old from new ... also does look like a diff oil seal issue (have you a warranty still ?)

hi folks, yes the wax was done before the bolts were put back. and yes the mechanic pointed the screw in plug for the diff,apparently these are not seals but the screw in bolt is tapered so just needed tightening to seal properly ? I will keep my eye on it, has anyone else had this on theirs,regards,mark
