If you've got a ROW V8 maybe try the fumoto.co.au (iirc) site or the U.K. One. I ordered direct from the aus. branch since I needed the BSP adapter only they had. Their customer service was superb--maybe try the customer service folks in your vehicle's country of origin for clarification on what'll fit? Also, if you can figure out your plug thread, it's a no brainer.

What did you clean the inside of the chassis with before you sprayed it?

It is a bit limited what you can do for prep.. but I used some compressed air in a few of the holes to get some of the dust and dirt out. then used another Eastwood product that was a rust converter. It came in a can and I sprayed that with the hose from the Internal Chassis coating. I guess its kinda like ospho just in a pressurized can. I let that dry then hit it with the Internal Chassis. Its not perfect but I figure anything I can do will help lol

note that Eastwood does not recommend using the rust converter because if it gets on any exterior part of the chassis "it will not be paintable" but I figured I could keep the outside pretty clean.

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.
