Undercoater/Certified or well respected Defender mechanic in VA

Hi everyone,

got a buddy in Yorktown/Williamsburg area who has a 94 Defender 90 and he's looking for a good place for someone or a well respected shop to do some undercoating as well as any mechanical work in the future.

I always see all you VA guys on here so I figured this would be by far the best place to find someone good to send him to.

cheers
chad

yeah would it seal it in? frame is pretty rust free though and we could grind off what's on there. nothing major at all.

The Defender frames rust from the inside out. Go poking around with a pointed hammer. you will be amazed at what you will find and wont find for that matter.

Gotta agree with Mike on this one...don't screw up a perfectly good NAS (or any truck) with something that just "hides" things. Here's my prior rant/advice:
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...84&postcount=4

It is a bit of work, but the end result is worth it. For what it's worth my '83 now looks better than the '94 (since I ran out of gusto to attempt the same thing on the NAS). Maybe next summer. And I think my plan for the 88 is to skip it altogether and go galvy!

We use the Eastwood products like the internal frame coating as PM as well as after frame repairs. Don't have any long term effectiveness reports yet, but considering how relatively easy it is to apply and based on it's product description, why not?

I'm with the rest of the folks on undercoating. It's better not to do. The better thing to do is save towards a galv frame.

As for work on the truck, it's best done DIY....or DIYWF (do it yourself with friends)

Waxoyl is a bear to remove but it did a great job of keeping my 90 in good condition considering it lived in the UK for 26 years.

If I lived in uk or the rust belt I would use it. I think the trick is to keep up on it and have it cleaned / redone from time to time as the only areas I had rust is where it was missing or old / cracked.

It is a love hate thing as it kept my 90 in good shape but it makes working on the truck a mess and it is a bitch to remove

I have also thought that you could use POR-15 and spray it on the inside of the frame as long as it wasn't waxoyled before. That should chemically stop the rust as long as it wasn't already too flakey.

My understanding is that spraying POR can be a tricky - and dangerous - job. Something about when it goes into a sprayable form it contains arsenic or similar...don't quote me on that, but best to check into it before spraying it in your garage .

POR-15 has to be sprayed (after thinning) with an HVLP sprayer which would be tricky to do on the inside of the frame. That being said, Eastwood now also recommends trying the internal frame coating nozzle for other paints such as their rust encapsulator if you wanted to try that

When did they start doing that? Maybe I'll try the encapsulator inside the 90 chassis, though the internal frame coating does seem like pretty good stuff....it almost burns down through the grime/rust and then sets up pretty hard.

With all of the prep work that really is necessary to get POR15 to stick, I'm not sure how you could ensure satisfactory results inside the frame rails without significant work.
