I am interested in protecting a newly "restored" truck. I am sure I will soon be dealing with residual rust. I am hoping to protect the door sills, panels, etc.
A waxoyl application shop is not close to my home; however, Ziebart is. Ziebart would be cheaper and easier.

How diffficult is waxoyl to apply effectively without a lift and without formal training? Can clear waxoyl be applied to painted surfaces? Does the kit come with any instructions? Is Rovers North the place to buy a waxoyl kit?

Any alternatives to these products?

Thanks for your help and friendly advice.

I do mine every two years no lift. Just crawl under the truck and spray away. Not the best but not impossible. The frame prep is just an aerosol can. The cavity prep is a pump sprayer. I never sprayed painted surfaces. No experience with the RN kit. Google Waxoyl and you will find other distributors.
