Preserving the bulkhead

What are some of the methods being used to preserve an original bulkhead? Given the multiple points of access, both of these products should be able to reach all the internal nooks and crannies:


Eastwood's internal frame coating:

Waxoyl Rust Inhibitor:

I've used both (fogged the door frames w/ Waxoyl and the chassis w/ Eastwood). Just wondering if there are better options or any long term feedback on the two.

Long term I would galvanize them.

Russell, I've used both - the Eastwood internal chassis coating I used on the 110 and plan to use on the 90 at some point. But on both the 90/110 I use the Waxoyl any in the bulkhead cavities anytime I have an opening (swapping out door hinge bolts, removing heater box, removing dash).

It seems that the Eastwood stuff is more of a "shell", whereas the Waxoyl is more of a "coating"...and for no real reason I've just felt that the Waxoyl seems better suited for getting into the nooks & crannies of the bulkhead internally.

It's also worth noting that the spray nozzle on the Eastwood stuff I'm not sure would fit nicely into the bulkhead openings (the holes are small), but it's great for the chassis holes that are in place.

Also, the Eastwood stuff - I'll forewarn you - is some serious stuff. Not sure I'd want that coming out of the bulkhead in places you weren't expecting. For example, I had painted the chassis on the 110 with 2 coats of Eastwood Rust Encapsulator and 2-3 top coats of Chassis Black Extreme. The Internal Frame Coating ate through these layers of paint like they were the icing on a birthday cake. Not sure what it would do to the plastic dash/etc should it make it to the interior.

Just my $0.02 and experience I've had with both.

Guess my question is really if Waxoyl converts and stop any existing rust as the Eastwood product claims to do. The more I think about it, I did spray Waxoyl in the bulkhead cavities when changing the door hardware to SS. So just accessing from those points.


The chassis coating is some slick and hot stuff. Glad you told me to tape all the access holes prior to fogging and go hole to hole covering behind you. Thankfully that green stuff was easy to wipe off when it ran out and before it hardened.

the only rust I have on my bulkhead is from the leaky clutch mc's eating the paint off. I really like waxoyl its easy to apply and cheap. I wouldnt use it to "encapsulate" rust, I prefer ospho-> rustoleum-> paint-> waxoyl. I love coniston green spray paint
