Dinitrol
« on: March 25, 2013, 14:21:00 PM »
Hi folks, just a quick query on this magic substance.

I've bought some Dinitrol 3125 as after reading around, this stuff seems superior to waxoxl and can actually reverse or at least halt rust spreadiing.

My question is, if my car's not showing any rust (or at least, it has a bit that was deemed insignificant) do I just spray the 3125 into the crevices, wheel arches and usual problem areas or should I do as most guides suggest and remove wheels/arches and fix my little bit of surface rust, THEN do the Dinitrol 900 aggressively, THEN do the 3125 the next day?

Also, are there any more places it'd be good to put it apart from the usual places (arches/weather strip/join by the door)?

Cheers!  :D

Before I fitted stainless over sills I drilled a couple of holes down through top of sills and sprayed until Waxoyl was running out of the drain holes.
I also removed the grommets behind plastic arch inserts in rear arches and spray inside rear of sills and removed enough of the boots carperting and rear internal panel to enable spraying around wheel arches from inside.
Front jacking points and their double skinned atttached panels can be attacked from both underneath and from above by pouring Waxoyl or similar down the screen water run-off channel  where it goes down under the plastic tray.

Still a bit cold to be laying out doing it yet though .. good luck.

You're lovely, thank you. :)

Okay, I can see it'll be worth making a weekend of it. I'll fix the little bit of rust I've got and then either get to it or get the local bodyshop to. Not that I mind doing it, it just looks a little involved and time-intensive.

I have heard many recommend this stuff over Waxoyl.
Waxoyl remains a thick, oily liquid. Dinitrol goes off into a soft solid so won't get washed off as easily.

Yeah. The weight of these recommendations in fact is why my waxoyl remained in a tub in my dad's garage.

Dinitrol arrived today anyway, so I reckon if I take the time to fix the rust and treat as if with waxoyl into the problem areas I should be doing as well as anyone I guess.
