Anybody treated their 145 to a waxoil treatment to preserve the rot setting in???

Can be a messy job but its such good stuff once its been done properly!

Waxoil isnt thick enough if you paint it on. I use schutz and spray it on with a compressor...very thick stuff and does the trick! I think most people who look after there 145 if not any Alfa use similar products. It has to be done!

If you do it then don't forget the front strut mountings smile.gif They are hard to protect after the rust kicks in

I had mine done about 4 years ago by a a car restoration company. I also had the floor pan completely re-undersealed too because the factory underseal was just starting to bubble.
It cost around 200 from memory.

Still looks solid as a rock underneath as far as I can see.
