Car Underseal / Under-car Protection

I offer an under-car protection service for most types of cars. This can be on 2 levels, 1) A straight aplication of underseal OR 2) A full rotary wire brush session on the floor pan, removing the majority of infected areas. This is then painted using a zinc based paint to offer full protection. This is then left over night to firmly dry. The following day, the underside of the car is then coated in underseal, this is then left for around an hour to harden up a bit before driving. If the second option is chosen, i would require the car for 1.5 days, 11am until the following day around mid day.

As undersealing can get messy, the odd mark of underseal may flurish up the bottom of a door, the odd finger print on a side skirt, i wash the car whilst the underseal is drying. The car would be washed using a cotton wash mitt, all marks removed. Then dried off using a waffle drying towel. I then go round and apply "Fast Glass" to the windows. I have a few selections of cleaning products i can use. All is completed to a high standard.

I specialise in Alfa Romeo 145 and 146 floor pans, this is due to me having owned a couple.

Here is some evidence of my work:

This album doesnt do me justice. I was the first car i had ever worked on properly and so it was a big learning curve. (That isnt me in the pictures)

This is some of the work done on my current 145:

This is a friends FTO. Please follow the link if you want to see the work on that.

The work is performed on my drive way using some home made ramps. These allow me to work on many low cars and enables me to adjust the height. Please bear in mind that i am not a proffesional, i am trying to offer a service to help fellow car enthusiasts. My work is conducted to the highest of my ability.

I can also offer a detailing session which normally lasts a full day. This would consist of, washing using a 2 bucket method, drying off, applying "Fast Glass" to the windows in and out, tyre shine to the tyre walls, alloy wheel shine to the wheels, bumper gel to any black plastic inserts, 2 layers of polish then 1 layer of polish / wax.

Just to give people an idea of cost, i recently done a Nissan Silvia Import and charged him 170 for the floor pan, the 145's are a much shorter car so expect 130 - 150 depending on how bad it is...

Nudge! Iv just had the Silvia back again for the arches. Also i think i am having Naths car very soon to sort a couple of areas out.

With the brighter weather coming up hopefully people may want theirs doing?
