Hello I'm new to the Puma section of this site. I'm looking to buy a Puma and have found one that is reasonably rust free for a low cost sporty motor! I understand that they are ungalvanised and suffer from rust especially under the wings. I'm hoping to be able to Waxoyl the wings but have never done this before. How much Waxoyl do I need for such a job? I look forward to hearing from you all.

Have something to contribute?

I just bought one of the big cans and use it on the cars as I change them. I would do the whole underside as well. Make sure you get all round the fuel tank and where the floor ends both front and back. A couple of litres should do it.

Thanks BTMaldon,

I'll probably get some quotes for the job as well from some friendly garages (to see if I still want to spend the day under the car!)

It is probably one of the messiest jobs around, and it smells a bit. So dont blame you getting someone else to do it.

Its well worth it though, especially on a Puma. They are great fun to drive and if you have a good one, its well worth looking after it.
