Guys, have you checked to see if the rusting process under the hood of your car has accelerated after this OTR? It's very pronounced in my car.

See the pics of the rust:

I noticed the same on my vehicle too.

Experts, kindly suggest preventive action.

I think before any OTR it is a good idea to spray engine oil around the engine bay and the under chassis. Once the OTR is done immediately get the vehicle completely washed with diesel and followed by drying with compressed air. Once this is done you can use a clean cloth dipped in engine oil and wipe around the rust-prone areas. I spray WD40 on all electrical contacts. Pack grease on the mechanical linkages and voila!

Thanks Maddy. I wonder what i like more, its looks or its effortless go anywhere pedigree.

Lovely set of pics Prashant and superb videos again GS. Thanks guys for taking so many pics to capture the memorable moments.

Even i have noticed rust, will be getting the through washing and oil spray done tomorrow. I might be going to Lonavala in a day or two for work, if anyone is going to be there maybe we can do a recce of some other tracks which someone knows about. I will not be traveling in the Jeep though

Anytime Gogi Paaji - absolutely loved the metamorphosis of the jeep from an ex-army rust bucket to what it is now. Stunning machine! It has inspired me to get my own CJ3B out of the garage and on the sands of Palar!

My Pajero simplly refused to start yesterday. I could hear the starter relay clicking sound the indicators were ON and the lights were working but the there was no action with the starter motor. I checked the thing as much as i could and figured out that the Starter motor was not getting power from the relay. I remembered Tejus's post and could see 5000 to 6000 rupees going down for the repairs , but fortunately it was just a connector which needed to be changed. As a precaution I haved sprayed WD40 on all the possible connectors.

ROCK group ROCKS. On a serious note, please let us know how we can help with things. You can delegate activities to us.

Barbeque on the beach can also be a good idea.
