Shuts or stone chip same thing really any good motor factors will have it.
I have used two types both are used with a stone chip spray gun which attaches to an air compresser. But the yellow can one comes in a spray can aswell ands it's just as good iv used it on my back sub frame and I have no problems. Hope this helps u.

I just saw your comment about a Clubman estate towing a caravan,I would be pretty sure that was me before I went to Kent last year.Good work on your Mini as well,that interior really suits it.
