Underseal

When I first got my Surf, the chassis was SO clean it seemed silly not to take advantage of the fact and to try and keep it un-corroded through the English winters. I did this with the help of a mechanic friend so we had access to a proper workshop, you could do it without all this equipment but it would take a lot longer and it would be difficult to do a proper job.

The day before we did this job, the entire underside was steam cleaned and left to dry for 24 hours in a heated bay. If you underseal, you run the risk of trapping moisture, so it is very important to ensure it is clean and dry beforehand.

The actual spraying took about 1 hour.

Tools/Equipment Needed

  • Hydraulic ramp
  • Steam cleaner
  • Air compressor and spray gun
  • 6x 1KG pots of underbody sealant

Pretty handy if you have one of these!

 
     

Underbody sealant was sprayed on the underside of the body and all chassis components.
