Just looking for what is the latest (or old but best) ideas on what to spray/pour inside the HK's quarters, doors and other hidden nooks before I seal it with interior. I know I can get to other spots later (like access from the boot area, or spray into the sills from clip holes or drain holes) but some of it is best done now while there is zero trim in it other than the headlining. What i'm talking about is mainly behind rust repair sections especially areas like in the quarter between the door and the wheel.

In years gone by I've used fish oil and Tectyl, but this was over 20 years ago, only had new cars since. My HJ Premier was done by James Rustproofing in Newcastle when it was new and it has never had rust and been a coastal car all its life, so whatever that was it must have been good!

On my hatchback I used Fertan (phosphoric acid) and let it dry, this was to convert any surface rust that may have been lurking, then fish oil. But the car stunk for months. Having said that though this Monaro won't be driven for another year at best, so the smell should go by then if fish oil is the best.

Any suggestions?

lanolin and fish oil have been used for many good products. lanox is excellent for rust proofing and lube and is basically made up of those two ingredients. add that to bitumen and sounds like a product our dads would've bought back when... 5lt looks like it's worth a try. saying that after I rust repaired my van I coated it with bitumas black, which is used for sealing water tanks and retaining walls.

I emailed them and asked if it is fit for my purpose, and rather than blow smoke up their own product they told me to get a can and try it, and offered the advice that it will penetrate seams and double metal areas like fish oil does but won't drip out forever and re-drip on hot days like fish oil does. Sounds like it is worth a go. I'll put all the black plugs in the door frame perimeter first and spray it and see how it goes in there before I cut loose in the quarters.

Penetrol maybe good for un rusted steel.
I have no rust in any of my cars.

But there was a product a mate used for his old HK Monaro it went over and sealed rust in he said, so you cut back what rust you could and the little bits that you could not truly deal with, you hit it with this stuff, but it was very expensive, his 2ed car he did he asked to use that same stuff and the dude doing it refused said it was to expensive, mate said he did not give a fook but old mate refused saying what he was using was good enough.

POR-15, is the stuff you're thinking of? Eastwood also make an encapsulator. Not sure how effective they'll be for your application. Plan B: Tectyl. Valvoline sell an aerosol version, or theres the company website.
