This is good:

Then just spray over the top. It leaves a nice rippled, plasticky finish. It's great for areas than get a lot of abuse.
Makes a nice change to just slapping Hammerite on, which is only good for gates.

You want underbody wax, if feeling adventurous buy the kit to inject into the cavities as well.
Stand your OPEN tin of wax in some warm water before hand, makes it easier to apply. Plenty of plastic sheeting on floor and paper overalls for you, trust me it gets FUN!!!
