Re: hallo to you all

I've used ACF-50 on the bike and been happy. Bearing in mind it had lots of painted aluminium held together with stainless bolts anything will have a hard time.

On the car I spent £80 plus some effort to have the axle grit blasted and hot zinc metal sprayed. Overkill for sure but at that price it's not worth doing anything less.

Frost are pretty pricey. It would have cost me around £50 for enough POR-15 to do the job and I'll still have to de-rust it and maybe overcoat the POR-15 as it's not UV stable.

Blow me! There it is on the coffee table right in front of me! April issue, page 56. They seem to be reviewing a new to UK product Krown T40. Made in Canada. (Krown.co.uk) tel 01215 573874. Looks very impressive - but don't they all?
Try Dinitrol. I have found it very good. A good range of products for different areas of the body all based on a quality wax. I think it makes a mockery of Waxoyl.

i have used waxoyl in the past and it did a reasonable job on my old rover 75.
this time however i used bilt hamber u/b wax in a big can .sprayed on very well
with a few drips onto the cardboard i had placed underneath.cardboard underneath recomended btw esp if you have a block paved driveway.but you where going to do that anyway lol.good creep on it and sets well to leave a good looking finish.did the tank straps will i was at it.i gave the rear axle around the cups two coats and still had a bit left.leaving it a while now to see how it goes may invest in some cavity wax they do. for the sills etc.

Re: hallo to you all

well after getting paranoid over the coolant level as it needed a tiny top up.i noticed while looking underneath for any drips the front exhaust clamp had rusted through and support bracket was not far behind it. so they have now both been replaced.plus a new coolant cap has been fitted and cardboard placed underneath it nothing on it so far.no water on the dip stick no mayo on the cap and it runs fine.and yes the fan works fine will keep i eye on it
