I've just brought an old MGF and want to use this stuff for the subframe. Just want a bit of advice from those who've used it before.
What's better, clear or black?
Better to apply with spray or brush?
And do I just slap it on everything that looks remotely like its gonna rust :*laughing my fat rear end off*

There is better stuff than Waxoyl out there. I use Wurth Underseal or Cavity Spray. This stays soft and doesn't dry out like Waxoyl.

and even better than that is pull the subframe off, sand blast it, powder coat it and then use your gunk of choice.

The problem with wax oil is getting it to spray without clogging. If you apply with a brush you don't have that problem. I would use the clear, so that you can see what's going on underneath.

There seems to be a consensus that Waxoil aint the dogs danglers any longer, but it is cheap and readily available.

Stand the tin in hot water before use to get it to flow.

I used two Hammerite products on my front sub frame last year and that still looks good. The rust converter and then black matt paint.

Indeed. There are marked internet leanings towards Dinitrol now. General consensus is that its military grade and seems to penetrate better.
