159 Sub-frame rust DIY attempt
Took the car for a service a while back at Autolusso, due to the undertray being off they easily spotted the front sub-frame had begun to rust.
I've decided as part of my long list of fixes for my 159 to have a crack at sort this out myself as there is rust, but its not excessive to the point of requiring a new sub-frame, nor do I think in its current condition it would warrant an MOT fail as its only partial in some areas.
Anyhow, I've just been down to my local Halfords and bought the following:
Kurust Rust Treatment
Waxoyl Rust Remover (spray)
Waxoyl heavyduty underseal (spray)
I'm going to spend all day / Friday working on it, but would appreciate any advice or how to go about this, other than my googling and just generally bodging my way through it, I take it you just get a bucket of water, wirebrush the worst of it off, then scrub the remaining, then apply Kurust treatment, wait 1-2 hours, then reapply if necessary, then waxoyl it, then underseal it?
Any pointers would be appreciated,
