Yeah, it's starting to get pretty chilly down here already. It was already down to the low-80's today. Snuggie time.

I use Corrosion Free 3000. DND (Dept. of National Defense; Canada), did a study back in the late '90 and after all the testing, this stuff came out on top.

I believe what we used was white kero/used oils, sprayed on.

It's been better the past week, though.

They mention the wax based material briefly. All it does is hide corrosion as moisture gets under it.

I use Rust Bullet. I started painting my frame this past weekend. I have more on order. I want to get the whole frame coated before it gets cold. If I have time I will do the whole underneath of the truck. I used it on my old Dodge and it kept the frame rust fee. I had a friend who didn't use anything on his frame and after 6 years it was all rust.

I was gonna undercoat my truck, but I heard stories about how the undercoating can trap moisture between it and the metal and cause rust to form under the coating. You would only know about it until it starts to get really bad and flake off. Instead, I'm gonna just sand off the rust yearly and apply POR-15 to touch up any rust. But then again you do live an area where they salt the roads...that's a pretty tough call.

Got it oil undercoated at a shop last year, did all right, they used to use better stuff when I was a kid. I just bought some Fluid Film from the John Deere dealer in town, haven't put it on yet bbut I've heard good things about it. I'll let you know how it goes once I get off my dead ass and spray it on.

So Fluid Film is the way to go for the northeast? I live in CT and the brown crap they put on the roads here will eat anything. When you spray it on how did you keep from getting it on the exhaust? What other parts did you stay away from, or do you just hit the whole thing

Do you mean that liquid film stuff? The rubbery/vinyl stuff? I've never heard of it being sprayed on (assuming that is what you are talking about), but I imagine if you were sure to prep the paint well enough before applying it that it could help.
