    I keep reading posts of taco's suffering from rust problems - all of which seem to be mainland owners only. Anyone in Hawaii have rust problems?

    If so, where's the best place to get rust proofing done? I wouldn't mind doing it myself, but I'm just worried about spraying over something I shouldn't.

    Go to Car Care Hawaii on Hoe St., that is where Servco gets the cars rustproofed. They did our shop's tow truck and some customer's cars and the work is top notch, they know what they're doing. Don't worry, they don't spray anything that shouldn't be sprayed like the driveshaft, etc.

    Cool. Thanks guys. I woulda got the rust proofing done at the dealer, but I knew I could have gotten it a lot cheaper outside. Like the tint quote they gave me was like $500 & I know they go through T&T - I got a quote straight from T&T for $158 instead.

    Anyone else having any rust problems on the Island? I've only had my truck for a month now, but it's a 2010, so I'm sure it was sitting on the lot for a while. I see some minor rust specks on the frame that I was planning to brush out & cover myself.
