26/04/2004 12:47:47   Steve   Another question for you all !
The sills on my 96 seem in good order but to keep them that way I was going to put cavity wax in them. Has anyone done this ? I was wondering what product was best to use ? Does anyone know a better way to protect the sills ?
Ta.

26/04/2004 16:18:31   simon   I had a lot of Waxoyl to hand so got it nice and warm and put a gallon in each side, under pressure, while treating the whole stripped shell. Car must be heavier now but I did'nt want to be on a maintainace squedule with this job;) I believe Richard's mention to be of a better make (Swedish).

I let this set then use a thicker product where required (as Simon says, Waxoyl). I did a small artical for the driver a few months back, it has photo's using Tom's car. Alister may be able to send it to this page if he get the SOC to verify this. The other option is to go to a company like Simon Jackson (too many Simon's) runs, see thewaxworks.net (A bad plug for our sponsor, who is also a Saab nut).
