Apparently there is a place in Wandsworth where they steam clean the underside of the cab, then underseal it for £45. There's another place somewhere near Stanstead Airport who can collect and deliver from London for about £65. Worth doing once a year to stop any rot getting into the chassis. Another thing worth doing is to buy some waxoil and brush it all around the bulkhead inside the engine bay. The area at the back of the engine bay can rust as water gets in and works it's way around wiper motor and heaterbox. In fact, you can splosh/spray the stuff anywhere that may start to rot, like inside the door panels ( water leaks in behind the window rubbers) Pick a nice sunny day when everything is dry, or you will just seal the water in... I have also heard that you can make up your own antirust treatment by mixing diesel and engine oil equally, and brushing liberally over any areas that look suspect. Might smell a bit though.
