Hi there,

"Petal" is sixteen years old and the chassis is in excellent condition; presumably due to the Waxoyl treatment when new.

Hope this helps.  allthumbz

Waxoyl works quite well, but it cannot stand repeated abrasion, so it is not much use in areas that get blasted by water and grit (such as wheel arches).

It is good in cavities, such as doors and chassis members, provided that they are 100% dry at the time of application. It is also good on lightly rusted surfaces as it seems to bind well to the rough material.

My main tips are, 1) get the vehicle as high as possible for ease of underbody access, 2) choose a warm dry, wind-free day, 3) make sure that you use as high a spraying pressure as possible, 4) make sure that the Waxoyl is thinned well down with white spirit and 5) put on old clothes and a face mask before starting spraying.

I don't agree about thinning Waxyol as this WILL make it a bit 'wishy-washy', all I did was to shake the 5l can well, fill my underseal gun & hook it up to the compressor & blast it out at around 30-40psi, I found that with the van on  ramps, I could fire it the whole length & width of the van, & its important (in my case anyway) to lay a tarp down to protect the drive/tarmac or whatever.
By blasting it 'neat' a very thick coating is applied & it forms terrific barrier.

BTW, I DID originally try the Waxyol pump-up pressure pot & gun & found it next to usless & it had to be pre-heated & it was a very half-hearted 'squirt', but by whacking out of a proper gun at a realistic pressure, it blasts out stone cold like a mad thing  hugegrins

If you want the Waxyol to penetrate into all the tiny gaps between spot welded panels and to soak into all the little rust traps, than blasting it on neat. cold and thick will not help at all. I have seen this done on a Nissan Micra and the Waxyol formed a nice thick layer and the rust formed a nice thick layer underneath it.

If you want underbody protection from stone chips, spray and flying salt, use underseal. Waxyol is a rust preventative and needs to be able to penetrate. To do this, it needs a warm day and to be quite thin.

I have Waxoyled all three of the M/hs I have owned from new it protects the wood floor from water ingress too.  Spospe's instructions are spot on.
