WTF are they talking about!!!!!!!!

It's physically IMPOSSIBLE to strip away ONLY the clear coat. The clear coat is chemically bonded to the underlying base coat. That comment is so full of BS it's borderline criminal.

For the life of me I'll never understand why people feel the need to rush through a transaction for this sum of money. We're talking about probably the second largest purchase most Americans will ever make yet you feel "rushed"?????? I guess if you care that little about your finances then you get what you deserve.

Waste of time and money. Vehicles, now days, are built with better materials. Keep it clean and get an under carriage wash done from time to time and us.e a good polish for the paint

It was part of a financial package deal that also included an extended warranty and gap insurance which resulted in a 3 point drop in the interest rates. I knew I could cancel the warranty and GAP fluff after the deal so I wasn't worried. I just didn't catch that there was no provision for backing out of the sealant. In the end, the drop in interest more than makes up for the relatively small cost of the paint protection. I canceled everything else and was able to recoup pretty much 85% of the added costs... plus I got the lower finance rate.

Re: Dealer rust, paint, fabric protection?

Yes please don't get at dealer, it's just extra profit they try to get out of you. My dealer asked for $12,00 for the whole package on my Overland. I had it done for $100 (paid my friend who is a manager at a mercedes dealer). I know it was under the table but I know for damn sure that package does not cost $12,00. Depends where you live, it snows here half the year so it's a must have.

So youre saying rustproofing is necessary, just not from dealer?

Understood and I've done similar things in the past

Re: Dealer rust, paint, fabric protection?

I live off npaved road and essentially all of my cars have a rubber undercoat ( 3M product in rattle can).
3 cans at NAPA would set me ~$25 and perhaphs an hour of my time. but IT WORKS. the gravel tends to chip away the e-coat factory rust protection but with added 3m undercoating it kind of bubls so it s a fairly thick ( perhaphs 2-4 mm) and tends to
1) muffle the sharp sound of stones hitting the underbody
2) softens the blows of said crap on the road and prevents from rust starting...
if you live in a "mag chloride"/salt spreading areas, jus wash the damn truck! that crap eats away everything.

and never the less crawling under my new vehicle it is kinda rewarding to feel that i have done something beneficial, even if i have to shave my head bold because i dripped the undercoater on my hair....
ilber<- yeah i shaved my head, but every time i do even less hair grows back up... go figure
