This applies particularly to Defenders. Click here to see 2 Defender underbodies 5 years later, lookng as good as the day they were done! Here is how we blast off the rust to achieve that.

Before ‘n’ After was started in 1987 by Chris Parkinson. Since that time many thousands of Land Rover Defenders , 4 x 4’s and Motor Caravans and Jaguars have been rustproofed with waxoyl and from 2015 with CR coating with 10 year guarantee. To see the full story, click on our history

No reason to go local and be disappointed. Remember: Before ‘n’ After is the only genuine rustproofing specialist. Only Before ‘n’ After gives a credible guarantee. (Perforation of panels is not covered) 6,000 given since 2002! You could stay in a Premier Inn for as little as £15 or even free! See how here: We lend you a courtesy car and you can have a great time visiting these attractions.


In 2002 Before ‘n’ After started to give 5 year guarantees: “If you see any rust coming through the coating, bring it back and have it retreated free of charge”.

Between 2002 and 2009 around 150 Defenders were given a non-stick, paint coating with 10 year guarantee we called KLEENtect. Not a single guarantee claim! We can’t do KLEENtect anymore because the materials are no longer available. But the CR (heavy duty, abrasion resistant rustproofing wax) coating was introduced in 2015 to replace it, also with a 10 year guarantee. At a third the price of the KLEENtect and unlike the KLEENtect it can be applied to older vehicles as well. Book in here

From 2008 we “improved” waxoyl by adding a special additive at 2% to make the waxoyl impact resistant without any resultant loss in anti-corrosive performance. From experience we have found that this also seems to prevent the waxoyl from oxidising and thinning over time. (Note: Chris Parkinson has a proper knowledge of chemical formulations for rustproofing materials gained through a 2 month full time research stint at the British Science Library in 1997 and we have a successful 2 decades long track record of high performance with our own coatings. See “our history” We do not approve of “special concoctions” of waxoyl mixed with old engine oil and diesel and the like.)


Why go local and be disappointed? Two Really great reasons to travel for your CR coating or Before ‘n’ After improved Waxoyl treatment for your Land Rover or other vehicles


Local Land Rover waxoyl treatment?

It might seem so convenient to go local for your Land Rover or other vehicle waxoyl or dinitrol treatment? At your local garage maybe? Or at one of the gazillion sites across the UK advertised by a so called “rustproofing specialist” who has been claiming “10 years experience” when he currently has only 5 and has been advertising with the phony claim since he started. This so called “rustproofing specialist” lists another 16 specialities on his other website!

There is only one Before ‘n’ After. It’s in Rugby.

But don’t be fooled! There is only one Before ‘n’ After rustproofing, run by Chris Parkinson specializing only in vehicle rustproofing since 1987.(See our history) Chris does not make false claims. At the time of writing (April 2019) Chris has 12 x 5 star google reviews. The imposter has none. See also, Chris’s testimonials here Again, the imposter has none. Only Before ‘n’ After has a Customer Record Page (CRP) for every customer. See here:
