Undersealing/and cavity protection.....and being careful who you use

Postby Mazda Mender » Mon Sep 09, 2019 7:57 am

I guess this is a warning to all fellow owners out there....

I had a chap message me about his pride and joy that had been undersealed/protected by a "specialist" ( I use that word very loosely ) just recently and asked for my opinion on his photos some before and some after... Now this chap paid £400 for this service for his car to be "protected", he was told that "everything " was removed and all the box sections done also....
This is from a Co that "only" deal with undersealing and was recommended through the community "as a place to trust and use". Look at the pictures and let me know what you see and think. Can you see it in the pictures below ?? I cannot post the Company name or the owners name that this was done to on his MK 2, as that is solely down to himself, but this sh*t angers me so felt the need to put this out there to be knowledgeable. Do your home work and ask any of us before leaving the keys for your pride and joys, other owners have been to this place and had this done under the illusion that their hard earned money has been spent to prolong the life of their Roadsters.
I have seen this before, some moons back, with a different Co that is a bit closer to me that was also solely charging for protecting cars and that one was a total disgrace. I ended up sorting out for the lady and getting some cash back when they saw sense, that Co was advertised in the clubs magazine as a "place to trust and use". The owners clob dealt with it very poorly by the chap that wore the position badge at the time with no interest towards the members that were using the place. He was geared more towards the Co to still be advertised with very shoddy work in the mag for a lot more of hard earned, so that was a frustrating time. I locked horns with the chap that owned the Co myself to get the right thing done and resolve the issue.
So my concerns are that this is now a norm?? Easy money from worried passionate owners for shoddy cheap protection at a high cost that is not doing what it says on the tin.

Any way back the the original chaps story....He sent them the link from off here of the MK 2.5 15,000 mile car that I am sorting that has been correctly stripped down for protection in all the correct areas. Everything that needs to be removed has been for good reason to get to problem areas, he was told...." that's a bit over the top", it is far from over the top to be able to protect these roadsters in the catch areas that "NEED " protecting for good reason from tin worm and rot then orange dust.

So ...Please...Please...Please....get this done with the guys that know these roadsters inside out and know all the hot spots to be protected correct. Also ask for plenty of pictures for yourself to view them that it as been hit in "all the correct areas and places which helps for a resale, and NO this is not a push for me to do undersealing and box sections. I will knock up a quick reference guide of the areas to be protected and with what.

As you can clearly see from the pictures there is a lot not been removed that should of been,,,undersealing on plastic does nothing. As does injecting into a plastic cover that's not a box section ,but see if you can spot them all, and feel free to comment..
