    So I took my 02 to the dealership yesterday to get my frame checked for rust. Aside from some surface rust I passed. So instead of the frame swap I will just be receiving the corrosion prevention coating.

    However, due to environmental restrictions in MD the dealerships are not allowed to use the substance needed to coat my frame.

    The guy I talked to at the dealership seemed to think that things would change next year so my name is on some list and I will get a call for the coating when the regulations change next year.

    So if you are in MD and need this coating instead of a frame swap this is what you will have to deal with.
