Iveco 65C18 2006 - Iíve just passed an MOT, but received an advisory on the general condition of the chassis. I wondered if itís worthwhile exploring any cleaning/rustproofing treatments available. Are there any commercial services available that could do large truck?
Has anyone had this work done - if so were the results worthwhile?

perhaps not what you had in mind but had advisory for the same thing and so i just scraped off the flakes and paint it with old engine oil, messy but cheap and keeps the rust bug at bay.

Iíve just stumbled on these guys relatively local to me - I nipped along to have a look/chat, and was pretty impressed. Iíve booked the lorry in for early Mar - Iíll update once the work has been completed. A bonus was the ability to complete any repairs, prior to the rustproofing treatment, so theyíre going the repair the inner sill corrosion, where the battery tray is rusty/wobbly.

interesting, see if you can talk them into a few pictures as they do the work,my interest would be are they just spraying over the rust or actually cleaning first?

i couldnt help wondering why someone would go to all that trouble to rustproof the doors and bonnet on a Land Rover Defender when those particular parts are made of aluminium although it may be necessary for the chassis rails. just a thought...

doors and bonnet are a steel frame with an alloy skin on a land rover.

i pressure washed the worst of the chunks off then went at it with a needle gun then finally a wire wheel

then i painted with buzzweld W.A.R

that was my land rover ninety 3 years ago (30 year old chassis) and ill be doing my daily this summer when the temp gets up.
