Done.

Let's get it all off amazon as it will probably be cheaper.

edit:

Make sure the mineral spirits I listed are not the safe kind. We probably want the nasty stuff.

Shit. Just call me when you get a chance and I sort this all out tonight. Home depot is next to the liquor store/tobacco outlet so I will stop in on the way home.

Since we are on the subject of cheaper methods of undercoating, has anyone tried "Finnigans Waxoyl"? It seems to be what the MGB folks are using. It's also much cheaper than the Rovers North "Waxoyl".

Thank goodness this truck had undercoating other wise it might of rusted. You can even see the coating on the second picture. At least it did not trap any moisture and rust from the inside out.

Your truck appears to have rusted inside out (as most do). waxoyl has two types, the homemade stuff mimics the stuff you spray inside cavities to prevent what happened to your truck.

Is anybody familiar with Dinitrol? The review I just read comparing treatments advised that Dinitrol is a bit better. Not sure where to get it here in the states though. If I'm going to be spraying that stuff from underneath I want to do it the best way I can the first time.

Yes it did rust from the inside out in spots. But it also rusted under the undercoating. Infact the spots where the undercoating had worn off looked like they had been out of the show room for only a year. Almost brand new.
