Rust Proofing/Waxoyling services recommendations?

Post by Ross S » Sat Nov 03, 2018 12:01 pm

Can anyone recommend someone who could waxoyl/dinitrol etc my BX?
I am conscious of the roads getting salty and my Hurricane still not being protected :shock:
Needs to be somewhere not a million miles from Aylesbury...

Thanks all.

Chevronic Centre in Hitchin do this - they're not cheap but certainly know their way around BXes

And I would add that you need to make sure that someone cheap doesn't just plaster over any corrosion that might be lurking underneath. Personally, I would trust Chevronics to inspect, rectify and then rust proof my car.

When I was a small boy I can remember my grandad painting the underside of his Humber Sceptre with old engine oil. Must have done the trick as he owned it from new til 1987.
Not very environmentally friendly these days.

I think a discussion with Chevronics is in order as, due to my Golf GT’s turbo charger exploding on Sunday the BX is my only car.

I can recommend https://rust.co.uk . They are authorised Dinatrol applicators, have all the data for where and how to inject the stuff and are very professional. They did my XM a few years ago, and will probably do my Xantia next time it is in the UK.
