Hi All. Seeking advice on whether you think it would be money well spent to get the car underbody fully rust proofed and under sealed. I am not experiencing any issues and the underneath is fine for now but is this a good measure to take for the long term?

Anyone got this done and what sort of costs are involved?

Many thanks

If you plan to keep it for 5+ years then absolutely it's a good idea.

I'm not sure who, but there is a company (I believe maybe a forum sponsor?) that do a. Excellent job. Not cheap, but a complete job with prep etc.

I know that if you search The Google for Dinitrol there are some links to underbody sealing services,
I bet the rust buckets that are Land Rovers know about underbody sealing :rolleyes: (I will not entertain any replies to the contrary @Blobcat )

Hmmm...

Land Rovers self recycle... it’s all part of their eco-friendlyness :cool:

On a completely unrelated note if anyone knows where I can get 4 new doors for a 110 I’d be very interested...:oops:

Probably not worth spending the money on a car that is worth less then 2k. The reality is that it is more likely to be scrapped because of an engine / gearbox / electrical fault than on underbody corrosion.....and if it is going to fail on underbody corrosion any time soon then it's already too late.

I wouldn't bother on a 2005 car & already had 15 years for rust form on it.

Sorry to revive an old thread but does anyone know of a good service for rustproofing near Gloucestershire? Many thanks. Or perhaps the forum sponsor is still active??

My poor grammar didn't help.

I now offer this as a service, but am down south unfortunately.
