As many of you know my business is in rust prevention/correction using the Dinitrol system with the majority of my work on Land Rovers (200-300 so far) although I do modern cars, classics and the occasional vintage car. I have never needed to advertise over the years as my work comes through recommendations but it is time to at least set up a web site and mention my name on this forum.

A friend is kindly setting up my web site as we speak http://ccautomotive.co.uk

I have a thread on another forum which has run for 6 years to give advice on how to treat vehicles and also has feedback from my work for those clients who do not wish to do it themselves. Below is a clients post from last night on Defender2.net who came over from France to get his Defender done. Don,t worry it doesn,t go to my head, I am used to it :lol: :oops: seriously it,s satisfying work doing a proper job for people and there pride and joys.

I can understand why people try to do this themselves, not that I would ever consider it myself lol, but I feel I need to say that when Zagato (Chris) does this, he does the entire vehicle, not just underneath. He treats every single nut, bolt, rivet, window seal and body seam and then takes the time to advise on how to keep it rust free for years to come. It's a hell of a job and he charges so little for his work compared to the value of the vehicle he's protecting and yet he's happy to help with free advice to all who ask.

You are an amazing man Chris Calvert. Thumbs Up Top bloke

If you want a go yourself, get yourself a professional mask and something to cover you, your driveway and parts of the vehicle. Below is a simple demo, the trick is to get as much rust off as possible.

Few pics of the Dinitrol system!

1. Rub down rust as much as possible.

Image

2. Spray on Converust RC900, pic take within a minute and it is already turning dark blue converting the rust.

Image

3. You need a coating of your choice over the Converust, either paint or as in this picture a clear coating of Corroheat 4010 if you want to keep a very close eye on what is happening BUT be careful it does chip!

Image

Or Underbody Wax 4941 as in the picture or the sound deadening stone chip Drohnex 445 or I would recommend the new Protect Super 447 if you want a better stone chip.

Image

This can all be bought in aerosols from Rejel.com with 360 degree spray extension nozzles and a cavity wax 3125 for box sections. Now to finish the rest of the wheel arch...

Next three in for this week, I don,t like to do more than three a week, keeps it all at a pleasurable plod on pace :D Not the sort of job you can rush...

Below posts are from today... :D copied and pasted from Defender2.net...

Hi Chris,
Thanks for all your help getting mine sorted out, I know it wasn't an easy job with all the cleaning.
If anyone is thinking of having this work done I would strongly recommend Chris.
Excellent quality of work and attention to detail.
You can do this yourself but it is a horrible messy job.
Thanks again Chris, top man.

I can only recommend Chris. He does a great thorough job and is always willing to help where needed. I will definitely be returning when needed. Thanks Chris Bow down

Last comment on Def2.net :D

"Got my 110 back from Chris last night and am so impressed, actually, I am over the moon Thumbs Up

TBH, as much as I like to do things myself I would not of been able to of come close to what he has done and this is money well spent on a great service Bow down

Today I will be fitting the new Gwyn Lewis front mud shields and new flaps and rear x-member mud shields.

Cheers
