Despite my smugness, I was feeling guilty that our Disco’s steel parts were on borrowed time.
An inspection confirmed it was relatively sound, so off I toddled to Nene Overland (neneoverland.co.uk) for a full underseal treatment.
The job takes two days, allowing the underneath to dry overnight before Waxoyling the following day. First the underside is sprayed with a degreaser, then thoroughly steamcleaned to remove the grime.
The next morning, the Waxoyl is applied in a fine mist from a pressurised gun. It looks great, and it should preserve our Discovery for a few more years yet.
Looks like we caught it just in time!
