This has now turned into a full restoration project

I used a heat gun and a scraper make sure your garage is well ventilated and wear a respirator mask.

Its pretty time consuming but it revealed parts that were starting corrode where the underseal had cracked and held moisture, I have been treating these areas with bilt hambers deox gel to remove the rust, once removed I then apply hydrate 80 to stabilise the area until I treat the whole floor.

Sounds like a good strategy. I’ve got the same Bilt Hamber products. I’ll give the heat gun a go once I release the rear cross brace from captivity - it’s harbouring a lot of rust above it. 
 

Thanks
