Rust Treatment / Rust Proofing

What do people recommend?

I'm getting the underseal cleaned off the underneath of my V, cleaned right back, and then I want to apply a product to treat and protect against the dreaded RUST!

What should I go for?

TIA, Simon.

Interested in any advice here.
At present, my plan for the VI is to take it to a specialist in Peterborough.

How far do you want to go? And what do you want to spend? I would always say go back to metal and then a 2 part epoxy mastic. Then wax all box sections. But that’s a lot of time and money. So many people do this type of work half arsed and actually make things worse.

A good quality clear wax is a good option, but it will eventually go dark from dust and crap. And end up needing cleaning off and re applying

I sent them a snooty email yesterday based on the poor quality aftersales they have just given me. No doubt the products are probably decent but Iím so ****ed off Iím just going to keep on using bilt hamber stuff instead.

Did you buy some products from them for DIY work, or use their garage services?
I was personally planning on visiting them before making a booking for work, just to assess them in person...

It's too important a job to trust to just anyone...

I bought their products so canít comment on their work but they seem like they know their stuff. Just a real shame the guy I was asking advice from was rude and obnoxious

Iíve used them for all my products. Canít fault their products or help. But Iíve dealt with the owner (Ian) . I had dealt with a girl but she was useless!

I would highly recommend them.

Personally start with a rust free as you can be clean any areas up any surface rust use a decent rust converter , or repaint no half arsed job either and after that use a clear waxl bilt hamber for me fill the box and cavity with as much as you like with in reason .

If you want to do a furrow job be prepared to take the wings, bumpers, sills, and even inner door skins off.


I do this all myself but Iím lucky my man cave has 2 sets of ramps and a machine room . .. try do on a decent low humidity day with a bone dry car and make sure the compressor has multiple dryer units in the line.

My opinion

Dinitrol used on mine. All underseal seam sealer ect off, all areas wire wheeled after a decontamination wash to get rid of salt or grime before you start or just works it into the metal. Dinitrol rc800 and rc900 for treating any rust on body ECT. Seam sealed. Zinc primer. Dinitrol cavity wax for all chassis, sills ECT. Undersealed with dinitrol also. You really need the diff and hanger ans fuel tank off but that's the Only thing I didn't take off as looked solid and took it to two garages for their opinions on state of chassis before I started. Bumper off, skirts off, arch lining, cpilovers all off.

Rampant, I used them for my VI two years ago, quite pleased with them. When I took the car in I knew there was a lot of surface rust but my trusted mechanic had checked it was sound. They made a bit of noise about it when I dropped it off but to be fair they confirmed it was sound and just surface and didn't charge me any more.

Regards
Fred

They know it's a fresh import so made exactly the right noises by saying "Oh well, there won't be anything on it then" - which there isn't, really - just a touch of surface patina in a few areas from being in the UK for a year already.

Thanks for the feedback - always good to get a view from a previous customer
