Underseal Prep

Postby drumtochty » Thu Mar 26, 2015 7:45 pm

When cleaning the underside prior to undersealing what do most people use.

A power washer so cold water!

Wayne's Garden Spray with Traffic Film Remover that he had a quiz about last year.

A steam cleaner.

I have seen some toy steam cleaners that you would use to clean windows but to get any blast behind it, I assume you need an electric pump but the heat coming from diesel oil which would costs a lot of dosh and is really an industrial piece of kit.

I just use elbow grease & wire brushes of any description. Then treat with rust converter prior to underselling but I'm sure others do there own thing

Remove as much as you can from underneath, linners,covers, shields, undertray etc, jet wash, clean down with TFR , jet wash agian, rub back and treat all rust, use your chosen proofer on everything including the box sections.
