XKR underside requires paint or underseal

Recommended Posts

My 2009 XKR  coupe is in pristine condition with the exception of the underside.

The chassis and various parts are just showing slight corrosion where the paint has peeled off .

Should I rub down and paint with red oxide  or under seal as in the old days !  or is there a better solution ?

Hi Roger, and welcome to the Club.

I had mine Waxoyled to protect it.

I had the waxoyling done a few years ago, and can’t remember how much it cost, but it wasn’t expensive.

Hi Roger, I'm in a similar boat with my 2005 XKR, it needs cleaning up underneath, resealing and waxoyling. 

I've had a verbal of £150 + Vat, but need to check what that includes - what do they do to patches of rust, treat it or just cover it up ?

I'll let you know what I find out.
