Gday All ,we're back from the West.
Had a ball !!!!
When I get some more time Ill put some photos on photo bucket and get my daughter to do a bit of a trip report as she kept a journal.
It goes something like....
Day 1. Towed a Sandgroper across the Nullarbor
Day 2. Towed a Sandgroper Off the beach
Day 3. Towed a Sandgroper Out of the Indian Ocean
Day 4. Towed a Sandgroper.........
Get the Idea?
LOL

Anyway...Does anyone know of something you spray under your car to prevent rust? Maybe something Supercheap or Repco might have?
I've heard of something with lanolin in it but can't remember what its called or where you would get it.

Cheers Hairy

Hey Hairy

Missed you by 24 hours.

There is a product I heard about on a radio program that dissolves salt, unfortunately I can't remember what it's called, all you do is attach the container to your hose and spray it on.

Cheers Steve.

Gday Steve,

Yeh bummer about missing you...we got back about 6.30pm yesterday.
I wonder if penetrine would do the job? I doubt anyone in Alice would keep proper salt dissolveing stuff. Might have to go in and see what they got.

Cheers

I was a bit worried about how he would behave while I was gone.
They (him and his brother) are like little kids, you turn your back for a minute and they are up to no good!
Might have to book him in for another dose of shock treatment hey?

Hairy,

I use Lanotec it is good stuff, BUT,it does not completely dry,it remains tacky and as such all that red dust up there will be stuck to the bottom of your vehicle.

I'm looking at different solutions for under the car, lots out there,
Fish Oil,WD40,Penetrine,Diesel and oil mixed,Staun make some sort of product,when you find a good one that doesn't make a mess let me know.

Adam.

Thanks Adam,
I was thinking It might make a mess, but dust is better than rust.
I was thinking about penetrine...it seems to soak in pretty well.
Ill do one section with penetrine and see how it goes.
I did try silicone spray in the engine bay once and it was pretty good and didnt attract too much dust, and what did blew off. Maybe a coat of silicone after the lanotec????
Ill let yiu know how I go.

Cheers

Hi Hairy,

When I worked at Useless Loop salt mine, we put every new vehicle on the hoist and sprayed Black Jack (Tar based sealer)everywhere under chassis. Seemed to stop the rust under the cars but the upper bodies where stuffed within 2-3 years.

Cheers
