Hi guys I'm about to refit the gearbox in my van and I'm just wondering what to use to protect the under side of my 86 T25

I spray/paint Waxoil under my van. I do not like underseal as it tends to dry out and rust underneath. But that is just my preference. I have done the same to my Morris Traveller that I have owned for forty years.
I don't know where I am, but I'm having a lovely time!

I used to use waxoil but changed over to Dinitrol 4941, 3125 and Dynax S50 which I found to be far superior.  Dynatrol 4941 can be applied with a brush and is excellent for underbody protection.  Dynatrol 3125 is slightly thinner and has excellent creep properties with rust inhibitor and usually applied using a compressor into box sections, sills, behind panels, etc.

If you do not have a compressor then Dynax S50 can be bought in large spray cans and includes an extension tube with multi point nozzle.  It is an excellent product with creep and rust inhibitor properties and easy to apply into box sections, sills, - one can goes a long way.   I still have one can that I have used for the last three years on my daily driver and it never clogs.

Another vote for Dynax, always swore by waxoil, because that was all there was, but Dynax creeps better :ok

They were quite hard to find last time I looked and quite expensive. Did find some on eBay though. Cannot remember if Brickwerks did any or were out of stock. Think the eBay guy was called OldtimerWerk.
