Default Waxoiling an S2000

If having waxoiling applied to the underside of an S2000, would you have all cross members, bottoms of doors etc to be drilled and filled with wax oil OR avoid this an just have the underside sprayed?

Most of the chassis stuff has holes you can use, the doors you can pop the cards and just spray some in

I had mine done, they didn't need to drill anything.

The worst bits are the rear bumper bar and surrounding area, the rear and front subs, under the arches, boot floor, tank

Funny enough I was “waxing” today. Just doing the rear of the car at the moment, will do the main chassis when I get a free car lift. I wouldn’t be boring any new holes in the chassis, plenty of access holes without drilling more.

I'd recommend Sealy for a good gun if you have a compressor (might be worth hiring one etc) . The seal gun has a few attachments that are great for getting into channels and doors etc, so no drilling needed.

Thank you all-that's stopped me making a mistake or two. Good of you all to reply.

Use Bilt Hamber products as they are far superior to Waxoil. They even come in pressurised cans to get inside the chassis rails etc.
