Hi everyone,

I'm doing some rustproofing on the Westy. All the camper interior/ panels are currently out and I'm grinding out all remaining surface body rust on the floor and interior frame, treating with POR-15 etc, finishing off with some leftover beautiful ASSUAN BROWN I have in a rattlecan. Once the metal is all done, the plan is to cover in fatmat and closed cell insulation, get the interior panels/ camper stuff back in and move on!

QUESTION: I also have some interior frame coating (green color) from Eastwood and I want to see if anyone's used it as a rust protectant on the inside of the Vanagon body before. I am thinking to spray it inside the cavities on the quarter panels below the windows on as well as inside the of the sliding door cavities and along the inner rocker behind the camper unit etc.

Is this the right product for this area or is it overkill etc? Any feedback on painting over this stuff? Thanks for any recommendations and guidance and happy thanksgiving to all

momentai

After you decide what to paint on the inner panels be sure to finish off the job with some type of panel wax or Fluid Film. The paint will eventually crack and let in moisture. A wax or film will stay pliable and keep the moisture out of the seams for the long haul. This is really important... read some of the rust threads for plenty of information.

Panel wax is your best bet for sealing inner ( and outer) Vanagon body cavities.

I have this available in 20 oz. aerosol cans and works very well--

Great, thanks both for the tip on the panel/ cavity waxes. These seem more suitable for the interior areas that I am concerned about. I am already using Fluid Film on exterior seams etc. That stuff is amazing. Does the spray wax have a similar consistency?

Noxudol 750 in the cavities.
Noxudol 900 over the 750 on the bulk of the frame
Noxudol 1600 in the wheel wells and heavy spray areas.

The panel wax is thicker and will last 'longer' as result. I use the panel wax and then top it off with Fluid Film yearly on the under side but that's just the way I roll...

Noxudol 750 is essentially fluid film but designed to be encapsulated by the 900 or 1600.
So, you spray seams, unions, and cavities, then you can blast over everything with a much more durable and thicker wax (900/1600). They actually even suggest using 750 as a "primer" of sorts, penetrating deep into seams, cavities, and into any rust that may exist, then the thicker stuff sticks right to it.

A spectacular product.
