Hi , I applied lanoguard to the main suspension components late last year on my kuga avoiding the brake discs ! , it is very easy to apply and the whole process was quick the only downside the company recommend applying it annually but I suppose it depends on the area and exposure to salt ,mud etc .you tube is a good source of information plus lanoguard website , It is a lot easier than waxoyl , hope everyone keeping well .

Early last year I sprayed mine with wd40 as the rust so quick on the edges. But it washes off quick.

On a previous mk2 I put it on some ramps and used wire wool then sprayed gloss smooth Hammerite.
Intend to do the same this year on the Vignale. It gave a long lasting result.

WD40 is water based so easy to wash off, like the paint on the underneath of the Kuga lol. Years ago there were companies who used to do a underneath steam clean and underseal. I think they need to come back as I got a bit of a shock when I crawled under mine a few months back.

If you want to apply undebody protection on a few years old car it's a lot of work. Brushing down rust, applying rust converter and then spray / paint final protective coat. I did it on my car, but I used products from Noxudol. On suspension parts Noxudol 1600 and for chassis Noxudol Autoplastone.
Any products will be good if you prepare surface properly.

I was looking at Lanoguard a while back, it looks good stuff to be fair.

I watch a few South Main Auto clips on YouTube and you can see the problem with normal thick underseal, if water gets under it through stone damage etc it just sits there and rots the metal underneath.

Did you use it after you replaced your rear discs and pads.

Noo. I did it over 2 years ago. Autoplastone -it's quite soft on bitumen based, not so durable for stone chips -already gone on edges in main rear suspension beam :confused:
On this big arm where spring is sitting I used 1600, when it dries it's much more durable than plastone.
