Any advice greatly appreciated,
Waxoyl do 2 kinds of black - underbody sealer and cavity was - the cavity wax is a lot thinner and is the same stuff as the clear so doesn't matter - the
underbody sealer is just that - basically a type of schultz mixed with waxoyl - can be used in cavities but much better underneath!!! Ideally you want BOTH
Either thin the stuff with white spirits or stand tin in hot water - in this weather will be ok though!!!
Inside doors - especially rear one.
Bulkhead - through door switches - ideally drill some holes by airvents as well but not good idea on new vehicle!!!
Inside chassis rails and rear crossmember - especially above it.
Don't use normal waxoyl on underbody - just wont last - use underbody sealer - 5 schultz style tins enough - don't use Schultz though - waxoyl underbody sealer - most motorfactors will have it - get them to spray it all over - they will have a schultz gun.
You will get a burning smell for a few days as it gets over the exhaust etc - don't worry about it!!!
As i said before though - far more important is to wash the salt water off afterwards - especially in the winter with all the salt on the roads!!!
