Kurust, Smoothrite/Hammerite and any proprietary underseal are all products I can vouch for. They can be used in any combination depending on whether you want a coloured or a black finish.

Once rust takes hold though, you will need to inspect the areas twice a year to keep on top of it.

I check my cars every six months (March & September), that way I can rectify the ravages of winter past and add a measure of prevention for the next one.

All the best, and tell your Dad its not what the car's worth that counts - its what it would cost to replace it that matters most. That's the best way to decide to keep it or sell it.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
