    I want to rustproof the underneath of my RV which amazingly (to me at least) has a whole chassis and outriggrs made of untreated mild steel. Has anybody used Waxoyl before. Is it a DIY job?

    It is a DIY job if you like getting REALLY messy .

    I'd recommend overalls zipped up to the neck, eye protection and a rather large pit would be useful :Laughing:

    Well John, you will be doing it mate...... :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1: Dirty, filthy job, but well worth while Jim. You should also drill and fill the box sections mate for total protection though......
    Not one for me I'm afraid :Laughing:

    Jim are YOU really going to keep your current RV that long?

    Its the same dilemma I have with converting to LPG:RollEyes: Cost me £200 in fuel to attend Bosworth and would have been about £80 on gas:Doh:

    Hi Jim,

    Well worth the time and effort.

    As the other postings but wear a mask and eyeshields if you use the spray applicator and plug any drill holes with rubber blanking grommets.

    Oh, and can we request before and after photos of yourself :Eeek::Rofl1:

    JimJam,

    Is Waxoyl the same stuff used by "Before 'n' After"? Their advert advises not to sleep in van for 3 WEEKS after treatment.
