If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

$5 worth of quarters at the car wash after snowy roads, or lots of mud and I've never had issues with rusty truck bodies/other parts.

See lots of fairly new pickups with rust bubbles starting on the bed above the rear wheel openings. Figure those are people too dumb, cheap or lazy, to keep stuff from accumulating there and eventually causing problems?


If three or more people think you're a dimwit, chances are at least one of them is right.

Seems like leasing might be a better option in the rust belt.

'They' spread an idiotic mixture of pea gravel and salt on our roads up here. The gravel is for chipping windshields and paint. The paint chips provide the perfect opening for the salt to work.

We've had good success over the years with annual applications of Rust Check, Fluid Film or Wool Wax, and regular washing until the road salt season ends. Any of the fore mentioned are a messy pain, but really extend the life of frames and panels. IME.

Stay far away from hard undercoatings. They will eventually trap the salt and moisture against the frame, and the resulting rot is impressive to behold.

Clean your frame with a pressure washer and use a few cans of this in rust prone areas(ie inside frame rails and hard to get suspension components)

I just wash the car a lot - underbody flush etc.

The Greenbay area has pretty mild weather.
US41 in marquette county is the most highly salted piece of highway in the state of MI. Untreated cars will not make it 5 years without rust.
Thankfully I moved to a dryer, salt free climate.

I've used this stuff and many of Eastwood's products, with success! (OHIO) I love their Encapsulator!
