Anti-corrosion Treatment

I am thinking about using an anti-corrosion wax on the underside, I know the black undercoat type products are popular but I would like to steer away from them if possible and have a clear wax type so it's easier to inspect the underside. Has anyone used the clear Waxoyl or Britt Hamber dynax UC before or got any other suggestions on the best product to use? From what I have read the DINITROL products seem to be recommended however they don't seem to do a clear option.

I have used Waxoyl before on my classic mini and seems to work well however it isn't used during the winter much unlike my 190e.

Try Bilt Hamber, they do both clear and black (jolly dark brown really). I used both on various parts of my TVR, now sold, chassis to good effect.

Use the bilt hamber stuff.
Not cheap but applies nicely and easily and works great (Ive used it approx 4 years now).

You can get a 5 litre can that brushes on nicely. Do the bits you can reach with this.
Then buy a couple of the big aerosols for spraying inside cavities and up between springs/suspension components. Two should be more than enough for a gd car treatment (whennusing 5 litre tub too). Unlike waxoil, these aerosols are great: dont clog and pressure lasts right up until end of can.

Thanks both, I'll try the clear Bilt Hamber. I have a Waxoyl pressure sprayer so I should be able to use that to apply it for most of the car.

+1 for Bilt Hamber. Quality stuff and as Davey says, even the aerosols are well made.
And 'car of the month' deserves the best B)

There is much to be said for using nothing and inspecting often....

Just a thought?

Just ordered 5l of the Bilt Hamber UC. Hopefully that will be enough and leave me with enough left over to go over the sills on the mini. I will give the underside a good jet wash to clean it before letting it fully dry overnight first.

I didn't think about under the front wings, I may remove them and spray there also. I can see the argument for just inspecting often, hopefully using the clear stuff will still allow you to see the metal underneath.

We use Mercasol. No point inn the "thick" black/brown everywhere, the thick stuff is only for places with allot of wear like places wheels "trows" stones. What is important is the thin penetraiting cavity protection. This is suposed to be sprayed first on all, both cavity and outside where you whant protection. Then IT should dry, then the thick where needed. This Can vary some om produkt types...

Mercasol 2 is the clear wax, IT dries and actually is pretty strong surface on..
