While I've got the rear cross member off, I thought I'd take advantage of the good access and clean out the chassis rails prior to giving them a good dose of waxoyl.
I've 2 concerns with this.
1. how can I make sure it's all dry in the rails before I apply waxoyl and
2. whats the best way to get it inside the rails, given that the rear cross member will be on by then.
How can I get the best all round coating inside the rails?
I've seen people recommend thinning it with white spirit and also warming it up in hot water.
I'm fairly sure there is a water repellant part to waxoyl so a little dampness shouldn't affect its application. However, leaving it as long as possible and in as warm and dry as possible place can only help. I took advantage of the summer weather, which might work for you in the next few weeks too.
I also washed the chassis on several successive days. Each day it looked clean, but more crap came out the next day 'get it as clean as you can' was the advice I was given....
I used a Dinitrol kit from Frost which has a cavity spray and a surface spray. It also came with a gun with a flexible hose to get into the chassis etc so there were no issues with getting the dinitrol where I wanted it (and some places I didn't) the kit also comes with a paper boiler suit and face mask to scare the neighbours.
A large tarpaulin underneath, four axle stands, wheels off, carrier bags over the brakes and an itchy trigger finger worked for me. Well, it's not perfect, but better than it was, and I've still got some Dinitrol top go over the bits I missed.
Sorry Dave, it wans't Frost, but Rejel that I bought my Dinitrol from;
The website is down at the moment, but the kit I bought was 10 or 12 cans; rust convertor, cavity wax and the underseal, plugs (which incidentally were too small to be any use) a compressor gun and extension etc for Â£104.70 ex VAT. so Â£125.75 incl. delivery. The product code was DIN01L, and I think it was for a 'large car'.
Was enough for my 90, with some left over to do the bits I missed and 'top up' in future.
