The Mercedes Vianno is unique in that removing the underbody is very large. Thye underbody ioncluding arches is over double the surface area of for example a small 4x4 this is a large area to clean prepare and treat. 

There is a 30>40% increase in product useage given the sheer area to cover on the underbody of a Vianno vs most other applications such as typical 4x4's

Platinum Underbody Rustproofing treatment

  1. Steam clean underbody
  2. Heat and clean cavities with 155C steam
  3. Remove underbody trays and heatshields
  4. Remove mid/ rear section of exhaust
  5. Drop the fuel tank
  6. Drop spare tyre
  7. remove rear corners, bumper, bumper support
  8. remove extensive amounts of fittings, bungs, and fixtures
  9. Needle gun and sand the underbody / suspension
  10. Apply up to 10L of Rust Encapsulator to underbody / suspension
  11. Apply Cavity paint to underbody / suspension
  12. Apply up to 6L of CIO to underbody / suspension
  13. Treat cavities with WAR (including front and rear door bottoms, and extensive underbody brace cavities and sills
  14. Apply up to 10 liters of WAR for chassis/ axles
  15. blast paint and refurbish the rear bumper support
  16. blast paint and refurbish the spare tyre holder brace
  17. Sand blast the heat shields to improve their appearance, and sand blast and paint the plastic underbody trays.
  18. sand blast and refurbish rear recovery eye if fitted.
  19. War Anti-seize on many fixtures, fittings and mating faces from parts removed.

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 a full 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:-

  • Fuel Tank
  • Mudflaps front and rear
  • Exhaust
  • Tow pack
  • Heat shields
  • Plastic underbody trays
  • Steering/ sump guards
  • Side step supports if fitted
  • Arch liners
  • Various other fixtures and fittings such as nearly 40 rubber bungs to allow cavity access

Mating faces are then cleaned and prepped further.

 

The next step is to inspect the chassis for welding repairs (charged additionally) - prone to failure are the three spot welds holding the spare tyre support bracket on, 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.

OPTIONS

  • Wet ice blasting is useful for removing existing treatments that have not come off via steam cleaning. Also useful for very rusty chassis.

OPTIONS

  • We can sand blast most parts that are removed fully refurbishing them, this does not include large items like grills and bumpers.
  • Wet ice blasting is useful for removing existing treatments that have not come off via steam cleaning. Also useful for very rusty chassis.

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

What we do.

Our current process is to 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 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.
