Waxoyl Time

Hi all,

If the weather's dry this week-end I'm going under the 159 to squirt warm Waxoyl about (clear standard Waxoyl just warmed a little to make it flow better through a spray gun). Obviously undertray off and I know the front subframe should be coated, but are there any other potential problem areas I should target? Under the wing covers obviously but I'm thinking more of any problem areas peculiar to that model.

Thanks for any input.

I recently coated mine with Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80 then Dynax S50.
Try to spray inside sub-frame structure with a lance, I also did rear sub-frame and trailing arms which seemed to be worse than the front.
Rust affected areas where on all the welds, whoever manufactured the sub-frames had zero quality control, shocking welds and spatter all over !

Jacking points - surface rust starts under the underseal that coats the brackets that are welded to the floorpan (something I only spotted when I started to peel it away). Also the floorpan seams - again, surface rust starting under the underseal on the very edges of the panels where it's very thin and cracks.
NB - wax oil is a bit rubbish when exposed to spray, salt etc., but fine for enclosed box sections.
