give us a call or text mate and ill come round and show you my bug. 0435900441
i use ankor wax, although havent given it a coat in a while. penetrol seems to yellow the paint too much for my liking.

I used Lanotech, you can buy it in a pump pack in the paint section at Bunnings, it is based on Lanolin that sheep produce to protect their wool it prevents more rust, has no sheen and biodegrades away and you can reapply, preserves and is simple to use.
