Afternoon!

The underneath of my e51 has clearly not seen a drip of underseal on Import two years ago.

Sadly it's showing a fair amount of rust. It looks to be only surface from light inspection.

I know from other threads there is a lot of controversy over sealing, as it can trap in water and make the rust worse. Potentially a fair amount of treatment is needed cleaning it back to metal etc.

Anyway, I'm a bit concerned over doing this myself in case I balls it up. So I'm looking for a company to take a look and do the job properly (if it can be rescued and is worth it).

I've contacted two companies - no response from either.

Can anyone recommend any advice or good companies? Ideally South East Wales / Bristol way?

Cheers

If you wanted to travel to Winchester then Adrian does a good job.

Hmm thanks @Stempy. Winchester isn't a million miles away. Who does Adrian work for, or does he have a website I can check out?
