Canadian Owners: Rustproofing costs/retailers, need suggestions

I want to get my trep rustproofed before the winter.

how much does the treatment usually cost and what is the best place(retailer) to get it done.

Im in the GTA area in Ontario. I want to hear your suggestions.

Thanks,
Ciprian

Canadian Tire is advertising that Electro - Rust proofing gizmo that sells for around $100 'eh'. It mounts in the engine compartment and sends out some kind of elctric shield that inhibits rust from starting or spreading. Its supposed to be what they use on snow plows. Not sure if thats the kind of rust proofing yer talking 'aboot'.

(Had to add in the Canadianisms so you could tell I was from Canada 'eh')

My mechanic in Kitchener does oil spraying for $40. Supposed to be done every year. If you have the doors and trunk done, they may leak oil (I'd just have the underbody sprayed).

is that sufficient do you think??? ive never had this done but i was told its a good idea especially under the hood and such.

Isnt that greasy looking stuff ?? its like orange but it feels like rubber. Some of our friends have it but they never washed it after they got the car.

My dad has never had his cars rustproofed so hes got no idea LOL....

if thats sufficient, ill just come down one day and get it done at ur Mechanic... ill get to see ur trep while im down HEHE...

Thanks,
Ciprian

They'd spray the underside of the car........so the bottom of your engine would be oily. If you have them spray the hood, that'll be oily too.

........which is why I haven't had it done :(

You can just buy a couple of cans of under coating (Autozone, etc...), lift your car up in the air with a lift( or get it high enough on "JACK STANDS", and wash the bottom of teh car REALLLL GOOOD, and let it dry, then start undercoating the unibody, I personally wouldnt undercoat the bottom of the engine, I would prime everything under the engine(oilpan, tranny pan, manifolds, etc...), You will need atleast 3 good coats of that Undercoating, to be a good application!, thats it! hope this helps out guys!, ;)

Krown Rust Proofing all the way. I got a 93 Eagle Vision with not an inch of rust on it and it is always winter driven, got 250k on the car. It's about $80, does a great job. I highly recommend it. Its oily like the others said but it stops dripping within 2 days and then do a normal warm soapy car wash and the residue is gone. I'm working on getting pics of my car up so you can see how they spray cause i get my doors ect. done so they drill holes to get every inch covered.

Hey Ciprian,

I've always used Rust Check in Mississauga on 777 Dundas St. W., I've been going there since the late 1980's. Had my '72 Charger done for many years before I took it off the road in '92 (it's awaiting restoration), my '92 Sundance which I bought new and drove for 13 years with over 300,000kms was done there with no rust anywhere, also a 2001 Neon which I traded in to buy my '01 r/t in 2005.

I got the R/T done last October and went with the no-drip type only because it was the first application and it puts a black sticky covering on the undercarriage that lasts a few years. This year I am switching to the regular protection, yes it drips for a few days but I don’t mind. I believe it cost me between $112 – $120, have to check the invoice. Yes they drill holes but only where necessary and it is very good coverage of all the seams and moving parts. They even threw in a free can for me, took about 15 – 20 minutes to complete, it’s best to make an appointment as they are always busy.

In my opinion spraying with cans is good for maintenance or touch ups but does not do as good a job as getting it professionally done, they reach places you wouldn’t be able to because of the equipment they use. I’ve lived in Mississauga, Brampton and now Oakville and always travel to this location. Sorry for the length, just trying to be informative. – Alan.
