I'm on the Suffolk / Norfolk border and although I do not do it commercially over the years I have Waxoyled a fair few Land Rovers and other things. Even with the most rudimentary tools the whole process is not a difficult one and doing the job yourself means you know it has been done properly.

That said for a few quid any of the commercial vehicle or plant fixers around here should be able to steam clean your vehicle and most of independent LR specialists around should be able to squirt a bit of Waxoyl about. Give Mansfield Motors in Bury or Mark Peacock in Stradbroke a shout.

Surely Waxoyl either has to be properly applied or not at all. It is only effective protection when it gets into the hard to reach areas (inside chassis rails...). Those are the bits that would get missed if you didn't know what you were doing.

I think an expert might be called for in my case.

Ok squirting was probably not the best choice of words but that's basically what it is - substitute spray or inject if you prefer.

Over the years this subject has been pretty well covered which means there have been plenty of threads both here (example) and elsewhere where people have provided info how to do the job, what you need to do to reach areas.

Anyhow the OP was looking for leads on places that apply it in the East Anglia region.

Thought East Anglia was just off the M1 :ph34r::ph34r:

Any way, thanks for the link, that will be most useful when I come to do mine. I've staemed off and pressure washed but it is still not clean and there are a few bits need welding so it will be done in stages I think. :)

Aye, get the welding sorted before you start slopping the Waxoyl about (now when I say slopping I really mean applying the rust preventative with due care and diligence using the appropriate equipment) ;)

:lol:
