Platinum      Premium      Standard      Basic

This treatment has been customised for the Toyota Landcrusier Prado MK3 third generation. These vehicles are renowned for heavy corrosion especially at the rear of the chassis and bodywork. Additionally the suspension and bodywork above the rear axle is incredibly difficult to get to. This adds a little cost. Because of the way Toyota has designed it this takes alot of additional time.

Platinum Underbody Rustproofing treatment

  1. Steam clean underbody
  2. Heat and clean cavities with 155C steam
  3. Needle gun and sand the chassis/ axles/ Underbody / Arches
  4. Apply up to 5L of 2K Epoxy Armour to chassis / axles
  5. Apply up to 6L RE to underbody
  6. Apply Cavity paint to Chassis cavities
  7. Apply up to 10L of Blackit to chassis/ Underbody / Axles / Arches
  8. Treat cavities with WAR (including front and rear door bottoms)
  9. Apply up to 6 liters of Blackit underbody coating to the front and rear arches and exposed floor pan
  10. 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
  • Arch Liners front and rear
  • Front and rear bump stops
  • Tow pack
  • Rear Bumper
  • Steering/ sump guards
  • Side step supports

Mating faces are then cleaned and prepped further. Parts are removed where the gains of being able to prep and paint areas, outweighs the risk of damage from removing parts. Please call to discuss.

 

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.

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.

Premium Underbody Rustproofing Treatment

  1. Steam clean underbody
  2. Heat and clean cavities with 155C steam
  3. Needle gun and sand the chassis/ axles
  4. Apply up to 6L of Rust Encapsulator to chassis / axles
  5. Treat chassis cavities with WAR
  6. Apply up to 6 liters of WAR for chassis/ axles

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.

Only the front underbody trays are removed as part of this treatment these cal also be sand blasted and fully refurbished. 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.

UP Clear Lacquer

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.
