    Rust! A simple word that evokes universal dread and is the bane of every vehicle owner; as one wrote- “One of mankind’s greatest early achievements was the extraction of pure metal from rock. The process takes ingenuity and consumes vast amounts of energy. So it is with considerable frustration that we watch nature so easily reclaim what we have wrought at such cost.” (http://www.thehulltruth.com/sportfishing-charters-forum/123560-test-corrosion-inhibitor-sprays.html)

    Like many of you I purchased my Tacoma with the intent of keeping it for a very long time, but the Toyota frame recalls and numerous posts of rusted frames from TW members certainly is worrisome. Hence I was a concerned to find a few small rust spots on the frame of my '13 AC (only 4600 miles). Threads on TW indicate many Dana-made frames before 2009 were rusting prematurely and that Toyota had addressed the problem; but I've decided to apply a preemptive coating of crc to the entire frame. This decision was also prompted by my paranoia of cancerous rust, a fate that befell my '74 Chevy ½ ton. (https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/fastest-rusting-vehicle/4269/page1/ post by ddavidv Superdork "Nothing has engineered obsolescence built into it's panels like a mid 70s Chevy pickup...") Hear, hear!!

    Perusal of TW and other forum threads reveals a maddening discrepancy of opinion on the efficacy and materials used for rust prevention/treatment and makes it damn near impossible to discern any consensus (and people ask me why I drink!). Therefore I’ve constructed this thread in the hope to consolidate crc information for TW members as well as to facilitate further research. There is no claim of completeness, I will be updating.

    :D Perhaps one day I'll resort to this:
    "The best way to rust proof an automobile is to dip the entire stripped shell into dilute hydrochloric acid, rinse, hot dip in a molten zinc bath, then apply 20 coats of epoxy enamel and dip the finished article into warm molten tar, allow to soak for 2 hours, withdraw, allow to cool, dip - soak - withdraw, etc., until you build up a coat of bitumen at least 2" - 50mm thick, store in a cold dry nitrogen atmosphere and your car will be rust resistant for at least 60,000 years."

    Personal Course of Action/Observations (chronological)


    (August, 2014) Purchased 2013 Tacoma AC with 4430 miles


    (September, 2014) Observed small rust spots on front box part of frame near cats. Several TW members note that this is the area where rust usually first occurs on Tacoma frames.

    DSCF7631.jpg



    (September, 2014) On the frame adjacent to the front wheel wells I used CRC Heavy-Duty Corrosion Inhibitor, it passed a rigorous salt water test and was rated as one of the best rust preventors according to an experiment posted on: http://www.thehulltruth.com/sportfishing-charters-forum/123560-test-corrosion-inhibitor-sprays.html. It dries with a wax candle type finish.
    DSCF7640.jpg



    (October, 2014) All other parts of the frame, inside the bottom 1/3 of the doors, inside the entire tail gate, inside of rocker panels, and this area: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...leaf-trap.html I applied Fluid Film. Although I have not yet formed a conclusion as to the best crc, Fluid Film was mentioned favorably by many reviewers, was readily available at my local marine supply store, and I just felt I had to get something on. Another advantage of Fluid Film is that it contains no solvents, therefore plastics, rubber, and paint will not be harmed by over-spray.
    DSCF7720.jpgDSCF7724.jpg




    CRC Heavy Duty Corrosion Inhibitor vs Fluid Film:

    - CRC Heavy Duty dries with a wax candle-like consistency and has an apparently more durable finish than Fluid Film.

    - Fluid Film has a lower viscosity and therefore is easier to get an even consistency of coverage and is able to penetrate and seep into nooks and crannies better than CRC Heavy Duty. Fluid Film's lower viscosity and penetrative power also means it's superior for moving parts such as locks and latches.


    (October, 2014) Plugged all small top and side (left bottom holes open for draining) holes in the front box part of the frame with 3M 08019 Clear Marine Grade Silicone Sealant: http://www.amazon.com/3M-08019-Marin...256526-2477841. I prefer to use silicone because I'm intimate with the capillary action of water and fear plugs may not seal 100%. I can always later easily remove the silicone for reapplication of crc and/or inspection and reseal.
    DSCF7717.jpg


    Some folks may opt to use plugs:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/frame-plug-info.345438/
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...e-plugs-2.html.

    Here's a method for plugging the hole in the body mount:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/plugging-frame-hole-in-body-mount.504942/


    (January, 2015) Observations to date suggest that while Fluid Film is great for penetrating every nook and cranny, it wears away quickly in areas directly facing the wheel wells. After driving only 20 miles in rain I noticed quite a bit of removal of the Fluid Film from areas around the frame adjacent to the back wheel wells; but there still seems to be a thin coat doing its job and in all other areas the Fluid Film seems to be nearly as thick as when first sprayed. The CRC Heavy-Duty Corrosion Inhibitor seems to be holding up well on the frame adjacent to the front wheel wells. Though I have yet to drive on gravel/dirt roads; those who frequently drive on gravel/dirt may see a more rapid removal of any crc near the wheel
    wells.

    Extended my A/C drain so that it no longer drips on to the frame; note glistening top of frame through photo center- Fluid Film still adhering nicely

    Nice consolidation Glenn. Everything that can be said about rust has been said multiple times on this site. No need for everything to be repeated again in comments on this thread but +1 for rep and this should get a sticky

    Only other suggestion I could make is include links to frame rot threads so people can see where other members' frames are failing and what to watch for.

    I just did fluid film on my 14 TRD OR as pennsylvania salts like crazy in the winter

    Seems to be hold well, I did go a little nuts and over sprayed on the exhaust here and there. The truck smelled like a big fart for a few days

    Nice consolidation thread, OP. The product I used, after researching quite a bit, is "Chassis saver" by magnet paints. The link shows it being done on one of Ted Nugent's vehicles. Didn't see it in the first post, but perhaps I missed it :notsure:

    Too early to rate it's effectiveness/longevity, but application was easy, as it simply brushes on.

    Thanks for all the useful info. It's hard to know what corrosive deterrent solution to use but this is a good start to consider a variety of options.

    When i bought my truck I had them do my frames with a treatment they use at my dealer. In Minnesota we have very long and cold temps. Last year we had snow still on the ground in May, sometimes we never get above 32 for most of the winter. Which means they use a lot of salt. So far the only places that show rust is where they didn't put the coating on under the truck.
