What is this you're talking about? Is it like a wax of some sort? Is it done by a professional?Striker98 said:i wouldnt waste my money unless someone on here has tried it. Id rather put my $80canadian to get Krown Rustcheck.proof my car each year. So far its worked, 1993Vision canadian driven in winters ect... not an inch of rust on it.
The rust process actually is a very low grade electrical process, I guess you could say in layman's terms. Think of a lead-acid battery; the acid and the lead create an electrical reaction. Rust is somewhat like that, and by introducing a low level current of the right type the electrical process and therefore the rust process can be neutralized. The anode or cathode or whatever it is, I forget what it does. I do know this sort of system has been used for a very long time on ships, salt-mining equipment, and other things so it must work. The question is how well it will work on a car and whether you can get enough of the current going to all the body and frame areas. Here's my rustproofing system for my '03 Intrepid... my '96. The '03 will spend winter in the garage.flying_pork_products said:What is this you're talking about? Is it like a wax of some sort? Is it done by a professional?
I never heard there was anything that you could do to rust proof your car, so I'm very interested.
I hope it works out for you - I've seen where companies offered two kits, a cheaper one with fewer anodes and a more expensive with several. I think the key is getting the current to all parts where rust can form, but when you get salt in corners and seams and edges if there's no current it might not work so well.boltuprite said:If it was in 88 I doubt the technoogy was very sound. They use this on the trucks that spread road salt here in Canada and I also have heard this technology is in place on the oil pipelines to prevent rust building in the joints.
Anyway I had the module installed in my new Honda. Attaches to the battery and sends a low impulse electrical current down the body panels which prevent the rust molecules from bonding.
The package supposedly retailed for $1599.00 Canadian (I payed $599.00) and included fabric protection treartment and an acid rain protectant sealer on the paint.
The car is guranteed for life against rust perforation damage to any body panel and the warranty is transferable if you sell the car. Honda supposedly administers the warranty. We shall see how it works.
