How long do you intend to keep the vehicle,what is it and will it be near saltwater???Personally i dont think its worth while generally if you keep it for say 5 years...how many rusty 5 yr old 4wd do you see these days,i would suggest fishoil or similar would be more effective and cheaper...just my thoughts.

Hi there Dirk, if your asken me it's a load of crap, I use to apply this stuff when I worked for toyota, and was a big money maker for the after market lady. Get yourself some scotch guard from woolworths and spray on yourself at least you know it's done then, as far as rust protection unless your going to be on the beach every day even then I would be gettin out the spray on fish oil cans and take all the trims off and spray in all the crevices and seams other than that save your self the dollars that will pay for a winch or 3/4 of the way to buying that bullbar that will be a lot more use full. Just my thoughts. Regards Steve M

you can get electronic rust protection much cheaper and you can take it with you to your next car if you want.. As far as paint protection goes.. give your car a wax before you head off on a long trip and then again when you get back..

Sorry Dirk didnt read the question properly was thinking interior trim,used to be called pro-pac we use to call it the $1000 rip off, anyway same with the paint protection as said above good polish before and after, my old hilux is 17 years old now and the paint work is still in pretty good nick for its age all original, yes it has scratchs an stone chips but hey its a 4wd and gets used for the exact purpose and no paint protection that a car yard is offering you will stop either of them. There is a product that they did a test on in 4wd monthly a couple of months ago where you paint it over all your paintwork except plastic parts is white when putting on and dry's clear, then when you finish your trip just hit with high pressure water and wella paint work like new no scratchs on paint. I believe about $150 a tin and will do the vehicle 3 times, patrol/lancruiser size vehicle. Regards Steve M

Hi Dirk,
I use this product on my Pajero & the wifes car, works well, but I didnt pay $1000 for someone to apply it, bought it straight from the distributor on line, about $150 for the complete kit or if you already have the polishing gear, the polish is about $60 - $70. here is the link www.paintprotection.com.au/
it took me about 3 hours to do the Pajero
Regards Campbell
