    Ya thats the non-drip stuff. A guy I know runs a shop up here and charges 400+tax but will do mine for 200. Suppose to last 10 years on a new car and 5 on a used. I just see alot of people with rustcheck and krown, but i dont wanna spend the 100-150 every year

    i prefer to use Krown for rust proofing. i have seen photos of vehicles and have had friends tell me to avoid the thicker products because they 'hide' the rust from you.

    Just get a couple cans of Fluid Film. It's clear, doesn't completly harden, and has excellent reviews. I like the fact that you can still see everything underneth. I'm a firm believer that the thick rubber-like stuff will cause problems down the road from water getting underneth from cracks and holes caused by rocks that get thrown from the tires. Wear a mask when spraying... the stuff will give ya a good head rush. :rasta:

    Had my truck done at the dealer a couple years ago when i first bought it. The stuff seems like a rubberized undercoating of sorts. This stuff doesn't seep into spots like Krown or Rustcheck would. After talking with the dealer, apparently if i miss a yearly inspection my rust warranty is void. Since i have a hard time remembering my gf's bday i figured i may as well just Krown rust proof it.

    Used it on my last car, and after 8 years there wasn't a speck of rust on it. This stuff works!
