Just get some spray cans of waxoyl. Little trick of the trade, warm the cans a little bit before use. It thins it down a bit and makes it easier to apply. Smile

Not wanting to go down the DIY route.. I want the car up in the air so you can walk underneath it and completely cover it... Gone are the days of crawling under a car!

ask companies that restore cars, such as minis beetles campers etc, theyll point you in the right direction if they dont do it themselves. dont go round ur normal corner garages as theyll either not do it, or itll be a case of "yeah, i can do that" and mess it right up
