Re: Undersealing

Cheers, I saw on a Skyline forum it seemed to be 150 for the going rate.... But guess any rust etc needs to be sorted before being undersealed.

Re: Undersealing

Would only do it in the summer after a good few dry days after an intensive underbody clean. Last thing you wanna do is seal moisture in

Re: Undersealing

Thanks for the info shambles, I ll have a look underneath when its being serviced next month. Would love to do more on it myself, but minimal space and no equipment - one day though!

Re: Undersealing

Undersealing is a messy job. If you do it yourself expect all clothes and gloves to be ruined when you have finished
Took me about half a day on other cars .

I would not underseal a Subaru though. Underseal means extra weight which slows you down
