Beach Work

Dear Group,
I bought a troopi and am going to do some beach driving and would like
to rust proof my Landi.
It has been suggested that I spray sump oil inside the chassis.
Any suggestions.

Brett

Ensis oil mixed with a little diesel would probably work better. And
buying a galvanised chassis would be better still.

I would recommend a wax based spray with creep potential (waxoyl type stuff)
but most important is hose the motor off after use my first job after school
was in the lab of an electroplating factory we used salt spray to measure
resistance to corrosion for military spec jobs it taught me one important
thing salt spray WILL sooner or later corrode exposed metal plated or
dipped no matter how thick the coating is (NB pedants stainless steel is
neither and nor is phospher bronze coated or dipped) of course you could
always nickel plate that lasts well (joke - )

use new oil, not sump oil - combustion products in the latter can be
corrosive, or so someone told me.

Re: Beach Work

On mainland Australia, opposite Fraser Island (the world's largest sand
island) the car wash places have oil spray you can spray underneath your car
to protect it from the salt water. We get it done before and after our
trips there. Not sure where you are if you have this available. Have fun.
