or Dave, you could go with the electronic rust protection, don't have to do it every year

I've heard of the electronic method, but don't know much about it. I'm thinking I'll get it done sometime this summer to stop the rust from continuing - but I'm still wondering "how much is too much". It's still a fairly low mileage car and I'd hate to see the cancer spread before it's way too late. Hopefully, it isn't too late already.
You can take a good look in a couple weeks at Dan-lisle and tell me what you think.

I admit it. I fog the bottom of all of our cars with a fine coat of oil each year. I get about 15 years out of each body with NNY . It really saves your brake lines.

Totally worth it, will be undercoating the new Intrepid and the Prizm for winter duty...plan on storing mine again this year so not needed. You won't get rid of the rust, but it'll go a long way towards slowing the spread of it and worsening the condition of the car.

As for what to use...



Safe for the environment, it can be removed if desired, and its super effective. Shops around here charge around $100 to do it...or you could do it yourself.


The only thing dependable about the future is uncertainty.

Thanks for the product info

If I ever get the chance to get a Intrepid body from down south I will be using some of this. A well cared for 2.7 will go over 200k easy but the body only survives about 15 years. BTW I will be posting pics of the floor rebuild on my 2000 this winter. When I spray the bottom of my car I can see carpet.

I've been lucky, mine's not rust free but there's only a bit of surfaces rust here and there, near the trailing arms and on the pinch welds. I want to clean it up and then repaint the underside.

It has sat out a few winters but seen more winter duty than not. However, since my ownership it has been washed religiously in the winters to keep the salt build up to a minimum. It had to see winter duty last year, but I'm hoping to let it sit this winter out.

Ya know they actually claim it will stop the rust, sprayed a little on an old brake rotor I had layin around... I'll have to see how it looks. I can tell you one thing for certain, fluid film reeks like the cheap air freshener spray you would find being used in truck stop bathrooms. Do yourself a favor, spray in the driveway, not the garage.

So I've heard. My neighbor sprayed his then new truck last year in the shop and said it smelled really strong and it can be messy. His truck still looks mint underneath though!

Well....HELLO!! Yes, a voice from the past. Yes, I still exist.
For kicks and giggles, I thought I would answer my own thread from years ago. I originally asked, "Is there any point in oil spraying a 10 year old car?" NOW, I am asking "Is there any point in oil spraying a TWENTY year old car?" Well, I sure hope the answer is yes because I just had my trep drenched in oil today. I told the guy to make it float in water if I dropped her in the pool!! Sure, she is still rusty, but the oil has to help a little.....

Looking forward to reconnecting with the crew in the not to distant future.
Cheers from Canada!!!

Kokanee Dave!!! Good to see you!!!! Dont be a stranger!!

I'd spray the heck out of it.

I remember a 1980 Caprice in the shop back in my auto repair days, up in Ohio, that was oil treated from basically day one. The owner had to be late 70s in age. That Caprice was as clean underneath as the day it rolled off the line; he bought it new, this was 2003 ish; oil spray will prevent rust, and, slow rust that already exists.
