I had my Defender done professionally and it was 1K. Very happy with it so far.

I had mine done last year at Randall's on Long Island for like $750 but price was low due to minimal (if any at all) rust. Was quoted higher elsewhere. Very happy to have had it done professionally. Now I'll just touch it up when needed with cans.

Not exactly cheap but definately better than a home done job unless you have access to a lift. Preparation is the hard part.

Link shows locations to get it done. Maybe one close to you can give you a volume discount.

Why are all the Waxoyl locations in a tiny area of New England?

Not fair at all...

How about a shop in Chicago?

Who can I write a letter to?

I think there is a webpage on RN site that either directs you to a list or the list is on there.

I know of some guys that your a spray gun that you would use for paint have good outcomes with them. For the professional kits the only place I know of is Rovers North.

Scott, I've done this both ways on both my Range Rovers a few times and it comes down to practicallity! The rattle cans are'nt as messy as the spraygun that rovers north sells. If you try low psi with the spray gun... even on a hot day when the hardwax is at its most liquid form, it won't be enough to spray it! So you have to use high psi...needless to say it gets everywhere and clumps up to much for my taste! Unless you dish out $500+ for the professional kit that comes with all the wands and stuff!

So for the money I go with the rattlecans...every 2years I degrease and power wash the frames and axles and use approx. 2 cans the front half of the vehicle and another 2 for the back half..frames, axles, underbody! The Waxoyl 120-4 you can use to spray into every hole in the frame that you can find! Because the 120-4 doesn't dry as hard as the hardwax therefore when its hot it creeps around and flows to coat the inner frame rails!

Either way Waxoyl is a Land Rovers best friend...incredible stuff, in fact I haven't done my 93 in about 8yrs now and I can still get under it for service and still get the stuff under my nail... that's why I would rather spread it thin rather than clump it up!

Scott, BTW...which ever way you choose! DO this outside on black top, on your back, with painters overalls!!!
Other wise you will be wiping your Camaro, your lift, your dog and whatever is within 15ft. with rags and turpintine!
Don't rush it!

Yes! Especially if you have a concrete drive... it will be noticable!

Hey Will, did you do any fishing off the shore this summer?

Nice. Make sure you spend some quality time cleaning/brushing off any rust before you do any spraying...you don't want to just encapsulate the rust in the waxoyl!
