Wax oil/undersealing

Hello All,

I'm thinking of setting some time aside this summer to remove the arch liners and a few panels and get the the underside cleaned and sealed up. Has anyone done this before? or is there a thread on this?

Scratch that, just had a look on the website and the ones which sit on the seats look awful! don't want to fit roll hoops if I can help it. Will prob go for the one that fits in between the hoop mounts.

Do the wind deflectors work? i'm just thinking of my Mrs hair, it really annoys her!
