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
