Hi all. Ok so after the last winter being as rough as it was it's time to refresh the under armour of Ermintrude. When she was new the first thing to happen was a liberal coating of waxoyl. This has been topped up yearly for the last 7 years. The only reason for this product was that buzzweld didn't exist at the time. My plan is over the summer to use my evil jetwash to really clean the old stuff off as much as it will without separating the body and then to rectify any issues before another heavy coating. But and this is the question, what's the best stuff to reapply? I'm not going to have the time to get it clean enough to buzzweld so it'll be a waxy coating whatever I use but which are worthwhile and which aren't?

Thanks in advance.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Well if the stuff you have been applying for the last 7 years has worked better the devil you know.

For me it is a no brainer. Waxoyl all the time.;)

Do it right - use Hammerite

Dinitrol gets better reviews than waxoyl. I dinitroled the Jimny and it doen't seem much better than waxoyl tbh, but apparently you need to reapply every 2 years whatever you use. (Naturally I haven't)

It always worried me that the bottom of the waxoyl tins used to rust through so quickly in the garage too- considering how much waxoyl runs down the outside of the tin you'd expect the bottom of the can to be well protected :whistle:

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Thank you all. I have heard of dinitrol but never used it. If you have to still reapply it just as regular as waxoyl then it seems an expensive option. Jetwash, tar paint on the bad bits and waxoyl it is. Thanks again.
