I went in my local Halfords to buy the applicater/ pump to spray in the newly welded box sections of my car.
The waxoil in a whole sales that I use sell a gallon of clear for £19.00 apposed to £32 at halfords.
But they dont sell the the pump and long nosel,
Halfords do at £18.00 for pump and £6.00 for the nosel,and you have to by pressured container to use the above for £19.00.

So to my question has any one tryed a different pump/sprayer like a garden water sprayer etc.
Its not that I tight but money will be spent on other parts for the car.
Im sure some of you clever people have some good ideas.
Cheers Paul.

Hi Paul, If you register and get a Halfords trade card some of there products drop in price by nearly half. I have one of the Halfords sprayer's and they are ok. It always goes on better if you drop it in a bucket of hot water before spraying. Smiley

If you buy the waxoyl in the 1 litre cans you can put a shultz gun on em and spray it on like that. personally i think the official piece of pipe with a nail in the end is Smiley

Hello Paul

I used a pump up garden sprayer with the waxoyl gun attached to it. The amount of pressure this created did a fantastic job. I used a tin bucket filled with water on a camping stove to heat the napalm before loading it into the sprayer.

I'm sure this will be regarded as a bodge by peoples high standards.

Definitely a bodge Smiley

Sorry.. of late I've been raising my standards Smiley

Joking aside, excellent tip about the tin bucket and the camping stove Ant.... as the problem with waxoyl is getting the stuff runny enough to spray.


I use a garden pump sprayer for washing my car as I cant get a hose long enough to reach from the house and my only concern with the garden sprayers is you'd have to get the waxoyl super hot so to is almost as runny as water otherwise it will just block the end of the hose.

I also heat it in hot water but also mix it with white spirit to thin it out.....works a treat.

Glad to hear it, makes for interesting viewing.

Going to be a cracker. Sorry for stalking but what do the kick plates look & fit like. Wouldn't mind a few pairs myself.

With regards the sprayer it was one with a hose attached, had a good id so didn't block.

They are 95% there and too long when you get them.

But better to have too much than too little...

New engine oil and grease mixed together and sprayed in/on with a schutz gun is much better and cheaper than Smiley expensive waxoil.

Waxoil goes hard and dries up after a time but oil and grease mixed together makes a nice sticky oily residue that doesn't dry up, its great for inside chassis rails, outriggers and inside sills etc. Smiley
