Just make sure that all your orginal underseal is still sound.....any you spit thats blistered up will need sorting first !

On one side of my chassis rail its been jacked on you can see its scuffed up the underseal a bit and you can see bare metal, do you cut it and then paint some new stuff on.

Or just go wild with a paintbursh everywhere? :lol:

I like this :D


It is easier to rustproof yourself than it is the car and it takes weeks to
get it off your hair

What a selling point! :lol:

just done mine. its a bit messy but easy enough if you have a few bits of kit.

1. wire brushes in electric drill. clean every thing in site.
2. screw driver. poke all loose under seal off.
3. treat any rust with a rust remedy and primer.
4. use a waxoyl application nozzle and spray inside all chassis rails sills box section etc. put the waxoyl container in a bucket of really hot water while doing this.
5. spray underneath the car with a waxoyl impregnated underseal using a compressor and underseal gun. mask the body and engine bay well.

You guys should try ordering a few cans of this from the States. They paint this stuff on sea-going vessels. I use this to treat an 11-year-old battery acid corrosion on my radiator and it hasn't grown much since. I spray it once every few years. It feels very much like WD-40 but it stops corrosion dead on the spot.

Hi,

Thank you for your enquiry. The investment cost of professional underbody protection for your Clio is 245+vat. I would however insist we also apply cavity injection of your bonnet,front and rear wings,tail gate,doors,rocker panels,sills,sub frame and chassis. I would like to make an offer to you to win your business. Normally the price for complete corrosion protection for your Clio is 390+vat but Rustmaster will treat your vehicle for 340+vat.

Hoping this is to your satisfaction. Please feel free to contact me on
07788583313 to book or for any enquiries.

Kindest regards,
Michael Miller.
Operations Director.
