I use it near on once a week throughout the year, pressure wash the underside after every use. Get some funny looks at the jet wash lol

Yeah I wont let it rot, the underside is my main concern I don't even detail the outside anymore all my concentration is on underneath.

Now stocked up with rust bullet and stonechip, just waiting for the weather now.

It was all my fault mate don't let it put you off, I rushed it just to get the underseal off. Now ive got the time I can put some real effort into it, cant seem to go wrong with rust bullet.
I'm emailing them tonight as I'm wondering if I can do 1 coat rust bullet then second coat with whiteshell instead of 2 of each. Sounds like I'm cheaping out but they claim the 2 coat method is pretty decent so I'm just halving my costs.

So the plan will be rust bullet, stone chip the arches, then whiteshell the lot.

Or I could just throw in the towel and have the whole lot undersealed? Nahh not a chance lol
