I will be pulling my trans and tc for a rebuild, and most likely the engine. I want to clean underneath and spray on undercoating, or maybe just paint it. What is best method, will a pressure washer do the job? or is a steam cleaner the minimum option?

any ideas for a undecoating? anything available in a can that is worth using?

I did mine with a pressure washer and degreaser first knocking down the heavy areas with a wire brush. If you have access to a steam jenny all the better. Prep the frame and seal it with POR 15 or similar but make sure the area is prepped correctly. Then topcoat with a high quality paint on the frame,underbody, inner fenders, firewall, etc. Undercoating would not be necessary but you could finish up with that on the underbody if desired. I did mine with POR 15 and paint from Eastwood and it looks factory fresh.

My tranny/TC area looked fine, it musta been all that oil flying around If I had thought of it then I prolly would have cleaned it up with some degreaser and painted with Rustoleum. The bottom of the cargo area was another story, used a wire brush in a drill to get the rust off, then wiped it down with xylene and Herculined it. One gallon did the cargo area, up both sides outside the frame rails, and the frame up to the boxed part. At $99 a gallon you don't want to let any go to waste. A year later and no rust coming through yet.
