Wheelwell paint

Some of my wheelwell paint is chipping off when I spray it with a regular garden hose. What type of paint should I use to re-coat them?

Ill try to find out what paint we used on my Defender. I had my whole underbody painted black again by a guy at home. He was cheap to. Did the whole underbody of the truck for i think around 200 dollars. Ill try to find out the type of paint.

I used waxoyl and I like it. Its waxy-water-shedding and it doesnt get all dried up. easy to touch up too, but cleans right off of threads and stuff with carb cleaner.

How does Waxoyl hold up to heavy spraying underneath? I mean, I give it a real good dose to get all the crud out underneath and I wouldn't want to remove much (Waxoyl).

I've never taken a pressure washer to it, but its not as thick as a rubberized undercoating, so theres not much material to dig into. Why dont you just get a can from RN and try it out in a wheelwell? It has interesting properties - takes a while to set up and gets harder or softer depending on ambient temp, but it sure is waterproof.
