Yep, it's good stuff; like Waxoyl but slightly runnier when applying to external surfaces yet less runny (apologies for the technical language
) under warm weather conditions so less of a hazard for other road users than Finnegans' famously (overhyped
) Waxy/oily product - though that is far better than applying nothing.
Recently though, following my use of a different product
to protect the forks of an ancient motorcycle belonging to a neighbour, I have realised that Ensis isn't the only genuinely good, easy to apply rust protection product available these days.. The product of which I speak is better known among the motorcycling community than among car folk, but it's been used under the tiny Mitsubishi that I bought, in rust free, original, one owner condition from Japan back in the winter of 2017/2018, and that amazing little car is still as rust free now in spite of its having been used to get from home to Edinburgh through one of the snowiest spells of weather that the A697 had seen in years. The stuff to which I refer is XCP's excellent "Rust Blocker". I've even used this on a small shovel that lives outside in the back garden and that also remains clean and has no new rust since treatment. It comes in aerosol tins, trigger spray bottles and bulk cans, it smells a lot like Waxoyl yet it genuinely does creep to cover any areas under the Pajero-Mini where the floors, chassis rails or suspension & steering parts have been blasted by nasty wintry stuff flying up from the roads.
So good is the protection (and the ability to halt existing surface corrosion in its tracks) that it provides for my Pajero's vulnerable, 22 year old Japanese bodywork, that I've taken to spraying the stuff inside the car's rear valance, sills and door bottoms too. That rear valance is especially vulnerable as, although essentially a box section, it has a flat closing plate that connects its inner edge to the car's rear floor and inner rear wheelarches, but this plate has ventilation holes at either end which are known to allow debris to enter the box section above its lowest edge, this then rusts away and the owners' club that caters for that car tells me that mine is unique in never having rotted through in that area, which as its first UK owner I can only assume is entirely a result of my liberal sploshing around of the XCP stuff, available from welding supplies merchants across the land at a very fair £12 average per aerosol can, my preferred way to apply it since coverage is marvellous and a little really does go a very long way, although admittedly the Pajero-Mini is only the size of an actual (BMC, not BMW) mini, so not the hardest thing to keep on top of...
Dinitrol (and Bilt-Hamber) are very much contenders too though, and it's these brands that the rustproofing pros usually offer since the names are generally better known than the XCP and my favourite Shell product, fantastically good though that is.
Please may we see piccies of the Stag, I love these and cannot be the only member who feels that way about Triumph's brilliant V8 powered grand tourer!
