PostSubject: Undercarrige oiling   Tue Nov 02, 2010 6:38 am

How does one oil the undercarrige? I want to protect underneath the 1A2 for the winter, as it is very crusty. Just looking for a guide, and what oil I should use.

Thank you
Bill

Mark Ross has the idea!

This is your winter car right? Not a show car, but you want to preserve it--Bar and Chain Oil. Scraping, wire brushing and painting it, is just too much work for a winter car. The old time northeast guys (older than me) use that oil, they heat it up and spray it underneath. Ever pick up a piece of metal that has been outside for a few years, but has an oily finish? Wipe off the oil and the metal is like new; that's what you are doing.

I do it to my two daily drivers, once a year. One of my brother's bought me a Wagner power sprayer about 25 years ago. I never used it, until about 5 or 6 years ago. I spay both cars and dilute the oil with mystery oil a little. It is real easy to spray and in a half hour both are done. It takes less than a gallon of oil and if I remember about $10. One car is a 98 CV and the other is a 03 Grand Marquis, no signs of rust on either.

Thats all I remember, Tom's the expert I guess

Get as much rust off as you can first, it won't do a bit of good to just "oil" over it. If there is that much scale, it will just fall of during the winter.

Tom is correct. But again, doing a scaly car, won't get under the rusty spots, and you'll have to keep doing it over and over.

Also, where are you going to park it? For the first week, it needs to be out of sight, its going to drip like crazy. You can't park it where you live. there will be oil everywhere in the drive.

We used to do this with all our oil trucks in the winter, my grandad use a pressurized oil can, with old motor and outboard oil, and some vegy oil also IIRC. It was a mess, and we would park the trucks on the gravel for a week.

The other option, use biodegradable oil, they do make it. And it won't hurt the enviroment. But will make a mess of your driveway.

Last truck we did this to, was a 69 c60 oil truck, it was clean underneith, and to this day is a dump truck with 220 on the chassis.

If you have an old tarp you don't like that works really well, and if you are going to park it for a while a put a few of those PIG sheets the really absorbent ones over the tarp too and it shouldn't run too bad.

FWIW, if you are ever going to fix the floorpans, or paint anything it's going to be a lot more difficult with oil all over it.

Ahole .There's unwritten rules to stealing other comedians work. Shocked

Billy it ain't rocket science.Use a pump up garden sprayer. $10/20.Wallyworld.
and really any oil will work.
Something as simple as WD40 will make a huge difference over the course of a winter.
The dripping isn't that bad .You've owned how many bbodys ? Your driveway probably ain't pristine anyhow.

I can not have something dripping every place I go, or wash off easy. The garden sprayer is the best idea yet for applicating, unless I can get a cheap wagner power painter. Which is better? Chain saw oil, or Bar-Oil?

Same for me with the cougar. Wink

I applied a light coat of the old oil after a change and left the cardboard down and it seemed to help a little, but it mostly washed off before 3000 miles when i was back under there. The garden sprayer sounds like a good method.

Why are you doing this to the wagon though? I didn't think you were driving it in winter Question
