Hey Stew, Looking good so far and getting rid of that rust is a life saver in the future! What wax have you been using out of interest? Ive seen a few mentions before of it being used in all the drain holes etc and railings however I never seem to find the one people end up using.

Cheers!

I use waxoil as its easy to obtain from halfords or eBay
I've used better From my bodyshop days but hard to get hold of if your not in the trade
The trick with waxoil is it needs to be warm so best done on a sunny day or leave the tin in a bucket of hot water
And you need a good spray applicator preferably with different nozzle attachments

Ah that makes sense I've been using proper Schultz in a tin for the underside and arches but never came across a clear type but just found it. Yea kit wise I'm all good I just had always pegged waxoyl as the same as Schultz turns out I was semi wrong! Shall ensure I get a load as I need to do all the gaps on mine :) Thanks bud!

I take it your using something like this

If so you can get the nozzle attachments for these so you can get into chassis legs etc
And you can buy the clear cavity wax to go with them

The under body Schultz is good but it only protects the parts you can see
The iner panels never get painted properly in manufacturing or treated but they still get damp/wet from things like sun roof drains condensation road spray etc
So most cars rust from inside out (check out my M5 thread)
Well worth doing if your keeping a car long term
