You must know that by us dinitrol is quite uncommon.
It' used in Northern europe and especially in Scandinavian countries, also in Russia.
I saw some cars which were sprayed with dinitrol.
I saw the sills and the visible part of the bottom.
At the end it was not very stick, but black and quite polished, and I thought the result would have been the same.
For this reason i was worried.
So that's what I understood:
1. the diluition with petrol is ok;
2. it' s gonna to stay sticky;
3. the dust is going to create another coat of dust.
At the end, will it dry completely or not?
And will I have to renove it after some years or not?
By us is very used a kind of protection called " antirombo" ( which means smtgh like " against - roar " ) very similar to dinitrol.
It becomes hard and it remains attached to the sheet.
Only after some years it comes away in pieces, so you'll have to respray it.
Do you think it'll happen the same?
Best regards, gianluca.

There is definitely a benefit to sticky undercoating. After driving
for some time, the tacky surface should create a thicker skin from
the dust, etc. When I lived in Vermont in the '80s, there was an
undercoating operation that sprayed used motor oil on the
undercarriage and inside rocker panels and other water traps. Then
you would be instructed to drive out to a sand pit behind the house
and run the car around a dirt track a few times. When you were done,
the oil had attracted a lovely crusty coat of sand, and off you went,
confident in another rust-free season. My car didn't look too pretty,
but it never rusted out from the underside!
