Ya someone on here was talking about sticking a power wash hose inside the chassis and just running it until the water was clear then letting it dry and spraying. I have some bottles of the Eastwood stuff just wasnt sure what to do as far as prep.

Yeah that's not a bad idea. Just make sure you give it a couple days to dry out completely. You just have to remember that depending on how old your chassis is there probably big flakes of rusted metal in there, I know there was in mine and I couldn't get them out.

The other thing is it is difficult to use that spray hose because its not completely straight so the nozzle is either against the side of the chassis or on the bottom so you have to shake it around a bunch and hope you get a good covering.

Is there a difference?
Made for Wolf defenders so it's stronger than regular ones....

I figured it wouldn't be perfect but some coverage is better than none right?

It was not today, but a few weeks ago I installed my Nakatanenga roof rack, then put on the RTT quick disconnect (4 screws to remove tent).

I did not do it to my Defender.

Spent a week in Iceland in someone else's Defender. Rental 130 HCPU with camper.

Fantastic.

A good part of the last four days was the #4 Discovery route. It is always different. Great neck of the woods. We got a little wet but still a lot of fun!

Changed all cooling system hoses, T-Stat, and flushed the radiator in the wife's 90. She took it for a test drive after.
