Hello, just joined the forum.
In August I bought a 1983 110 hard top for £500 off a friend. It's languished a bit on his drive but passed its MOT last week with no more than a dodgy bulb, which I was chuffed about.
I've started stripping the loose rust and old underseal off the chassis, or those parts I can get to, and have treated the cleaned areas with a rust treatment (the green stuff by UKlandrover that turns the red oxide to a black oxide). It all seems very solid, although there is one small hole right at the back end, close to where the rear crossmember attaches.
It's a long time since I worked on any vehicle like this (last time was on a 1976 Hillman Imp), so before I start slathering on the black gunge, I wanted to ask: what is the preferred coating for chassis and underbody these days? Do people still use black underseal, or is there better stuff?
Also, is it a DIY-able job to spray Waxoyl into the chassis via the various little holes along its length? Again, It's been a long time, so I'm a little rusty.
