Whilst at the MOT station with my '67 1500 Beetle last weekend I had a rare opportunity to view the underside whilst it was up on the ramps. Whilst it is generally very clean indeed I did notice a little bit of surface rust developing at the front of the floorpan and I would like to jump on this straight away.

What are the preferred actions/products used by others on this site?

I will obviously get a wire brush to it initially and get it all cleaned up but I'd be interested to hear of your experiences with the wide variety of rust preventative treatments that are available these days.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,
Batton

PS - By the way the Beetle passed the MOT with flying colours and the MOT man was very impressed with how clean it is.

PPS - For anyone living in the Peterborough/Stamford/Oundle area I can recommend Suttons Engineering of Nassington for a really thorough MOT. They have a great understanding of classic cars, and they let you watch the whole procedure and talk you through every part of the test - very interesting and informative, and the hour it takes flies by far quicker that sitting in reception reading old magazines!

The only problem with it is that it once you've opened it, it doesn't really keep - so it's best to get everything ready and paint it all in one go. Or, buy one of the kits that has lots of little pots :wink:
