Spent a few hours under our 2010 BMW X5 35d this weekend to finish up the rust treatment and before reinstalling the shields and skidplate. The procedure was the same as I used on the old Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel, Skyco’s Oxypho, except the BMW only has a little light rust on the frame. I’m really partial to the Oxypho product, particularly for treating after wire-brushing and/or grinding any loose rust and before paint.
Once completely dry, a light wiping with paint thinner then the black Miracle Paint in order to to protect the rust spots from reappearing all over again (new paint photo below). Too bad I didn’t take care of Brenda’s old Rav4 like this in the earlier years?
While under the car I also took a photo of the new stainless steel exhaust (left) after replacing a couple of parts (60 lbs worth!)
I think all the projects are finished for now … she is ready to drive.
