Platinum      Premium      Standard      Basic

The Humvee is unique in that the underbody is significantly boxed in by the body. As a result of this therte is a vastly reduced area of the chassis / frame that is exposed to the elements and that can be easily accessed for rustproofing short of a body off. To retain the OEM look of the chassis we recommend Stage 3 war gravity applied. this is a more costly product, and takes more time to apply additional coats, but looks period correct, whislt offering significant anti-corrosive upgrades to the original military paint used. Not least hydrophobic by nature, and offer Vapour Phase inhibition.

Platinum Underbody Rustproofing treatment

  1. Steam clean underbody
  2. Heat and clean cavities with 155C steam
  3. Needle gun and sand the underbody / suspension
  4. Apply up to 5L of Rust Encapsulator to underbody / suspension
  5. Apply Cavity paint to underbody / suspension cavities
  6. Apply up to 4L of CIO to underbody / suspension
  7. Treat cavities with WAR (including front and rear door bottoms, and extensive underbody brace cavities
  8. Apply up to 5 liters of WAR for chassis/ axles
  9. War Anti-seize on fixtures, fittings and mating faces from parts removed.
  10. remove front bumper

What we do.

Our current process is to degrease the underbody with FXdegreaser. Following this we pressure steam clean @155C to remove all loose and friable paint/ rust, and contamination.

 

After this process is complete we also steam the internals of the chassis and any cavities to be treated. This process often takes half a day to this point with temperatures up to 155C.

Once the vehicle is fully cleaned, we then remove parts. Parts we remove for example are:-

  • Mudflaps front and rear
  • Steering/ sump guards

Mating faces are then cleaned and prepped further.

 

The next step is to inspect the chassis for welding repairs (charged additionally), and to descale the chassis where required. We then key the chassis and thin any existing coating for full inspection using sanders and other abrasive methods- (many coatings on chassis even from new appear ok and have underlying issues, so to simply paint over them is a false economy).

After the chassis or underbody has been prepared we then apply as per above.

Premium Underbody Rustproofing Treatment

  1. Unavailable for the Humvee

Standard Underbody Rustproofing Treatment

 

  1. Steam clean underbody
  2. Heat and clean cavities with 155C steam
  3. Reduced (vs Premium / platinum) Needle gun and sand the chassis/ axles
  4. Treat chassis cavities with WAR
  5. Apply up to 6 liters of WAR for chassis/ axles

After this process is complete we also steam the internals of the chassis and any cavities to be treated. This process often takes a half day to this point with temperatures up to 155C.

Parts are not removed as part of the standard treatment. We also do Minimal masking. This saves a few days of work in total making for a much cheaper treatment. Vehicles may need to cleaned/ polished after, and overspray underneath the vehicle is to be expected, although we keep this to a minimum. We do mask the exposed body line edge, and the front section of the exhaust/ DPF if fited.

Basic Underbody Rustproofing Treatment

Buzzweld U.P. Underbody preservation is a borosilicate glass re-enforced underbody clear lacquer with exceptional anti-corrosive properties.

We treat the entire underside of your vehicle, including chassis, axles, and underbody, in almost all cases including wheel arches, and some trim removal. U.P. has significant time and cost benefits over waxes and paints as it can be completed same day.

U.P. is specifically formulated to be applied to a wet surface that has had minimal preparation.  U.P. will offer medium term protection above that of oils, and other waxes at low preparation levels.

Benefits include

  1. Clear- U.P. does not hide existing issues. You can spot problems as they occur and maintain accordingly.
  2. PREVENTS road salts and dirt sticking to the underside.
  3. LOW reactivity. U.P. is compatible with most existing paints and treatments making it ideal as a Patina Preserver, and a topup protection system.
  4. EXTREME creep from absorption, as well as capillary action. 
  5. U.P. flows in between spot welds, and absorbs into corrosion forcing out the residual moisture and air, suffocating the ability for corrosion to continue.
  6. FAST CURE. U.P. can be touch dry in as little as 30 minutes.
  7. High temperature tolerance. Survives on the exhaust system up to but not including the downpipe.
  8. Forces out moisture from wiring looms, and electrical connectors.
  9. Presents an easy to clean surface.
  10. Vehicle underbody stays dryer for longer, and holds less water in adverse conditions.
  11. Hydrophobic
  12. Dries properly, does not wash away, or attract dirt/ debris
  13. Makes maintenance work ALOT easier- cleaner, drier, less rust.
  14. EASY to weld, or prepare an area that has been treated.

We estimate the lifespan of U.P. conservatively to be between 12 and 36 months to first maintenance. This will vary based on the existing condition, and useage.

Typical Process.

  1. removal of wheel arch liners (where possible. some vehicles such as the late Hilux, or VW T5 this is not possible in the timframe.
  2. Steam cleaning @155C of underbody
  3. Air jetting down to remove excess moisture
  4. Application of UP to underbody and cavities and arches.
