What car?

I use clear Waxoyl under my Defender - works a treat but a bit messy. Luckily you can work under them without needing a ramp!

I used waxoyl the past year or so and was not impressed, went all dry and flaked off, adhesion to surface rust was also extremely poor.

Now use Bilt Hamber UB sprayed on...

Did you heat it up properly?

Super - not tried that but am sure it works okay. Most Defender owners use Waxoyl (if they care for it!) so it must be decent.

They do a form that you can paint on too if thats how you want to go, i prefer to spray, gets into more nooks and crannies and the finish looks more proffesional...

Yep, all old underseal was scraped off, and the metal was degreased with white spirts, metal all dried off with a heat gun, and the waxoyl warmed in boiling water...

Bear in mind the car has only covered about 1500 miles in the time since it was applied and now there is not much left...

prefer the finish that UB leaves too personally.

I use waxoyl and used a brush so I had some control over where it went,
Prep, prep and then prep again, its the only way to really do a good job imo,
Keeping it like water was the key for me and I love the rubber feel finish lol,

The vectra was done about 8 years ago and is still fine, I do keep it pretty well rinsed but nothing else.

waxoyl is superb IF, and i mean IF, you can use it via a spray gun and compressor. the poor hand held thing you get with it is total pants

i did my RS a couple of days after i got it, and did it again bang on 2 years later (last week actually ) and it was still there protecting what i sprayed it on, i just wish i had sprayed it on EVERYTHING underneath

using it via an airline, is very messy, it went all over my paint, and my windows (like overspray) so i defo suggest doing it just before a big detail. or cover the paint up beforehand
