Be­cause your clas­sic is worth it

Classic Sports Car - - Garage Gear -

Patina and orig­i­nal fin­ishes are highly prized on some clas­sics, but pro­tect­ing the ap­pear­ance of weath­ered trim and body­work is cru­cial to avoid fur­ther degra­da­tion. Owa­trol Oil is a pen­e­trat­ing lu­bri­cant that can halt fur­ther cor­ro­sion and is claimed to en­hance the look of aged sur­faces by driv­ing out mois­ture and sta­bil­is­ing the metal.

With ex­cel­lent cov­er­age, a lit­tle goes a long way and sim­ply ap­ply­ing to the sur­face with a rag will coat any metal in­clud­ing gal­vanised steel, alu­minium and zinc. It can also be mixed into oil-based paints as a con­di­tioner, in­tro­duc­ing rust-in­hibit­ing prop­er­ties and adding pro­tec­tion in ex­treme con­di­tions.

Owa­trol, which is priced at £16.15 per 500ml can, is also suit­able for wood sec­tions, such as on ash-framed ve­hi­cles to pro­tect from un­wanted mois­ture ingress, and can im­prove the fin­ish and ex­tend the life of vin­tage tool­ing, too. www.owa­
