Cleaning up the front axle area, waxoyl

In an effort to keep the inevitable Mercedes rust away I’ve been working my way around the van dealing with rust and preventing it where I can prior to respraying the bodywork.

A combination of a wire brush collection, Jelonite rust converter, Waxoy, Hammerite spray paint and a few other products have been used to clean up the areas around the drivetrain and also respraying our steel wheels black. Taking on a family member’s advice I’ve treated the brake lines with Waxoyl from front to back, especially around the supporting brackets. The exterior areas of the brake callipers have also had a quick coat of rust converter and paint as they were looking terrible.
