Just painted some of their FE123,(y) onto the Triumph Herald 13/60 convertible, I am restoring. So in about 10 years, I may be able to give advise?.;).

Seriously, it got the "thumbs up"(y). from "practical classics magazine".

That's the trouble with "old type" underseal, water gets under it and can't get out therefore causing rust. I hope it is minor because, depending how long it's been rusting it can travel and end up a lot worse than at first sight. I hope not in your case....
Cheers, Dave(y)

Had my X244 done at JR classics, with Dinitrol products. Not cheap but he had the van for a week and did a very good job - I've had various bits of trim in the cab off since, and keep seeing just how far he managed to get the fluid, he did a very thorough job. If you wanted to keep the price down you could ask him to just do the cab - which really is the main bit that needs doing, certainly the vulnerable bit for rust, much more so than the chassis rails.



Nice guy, one man business, I'd happily use him again.

One thing to bear in mind wherever you get it done - the solvents from the spray. My van stank inside for about 4 weeks afterwards! I drove back from JR with windows open even though it was a cold day!
