Default Rust Check!

The winter is coming and the salt is ready for the roads. Since our trucks are rust prone, do you actually check under your truck to see if or how much rust is there?

If it looks like that... Not a worry in the world. Looks pretty brand new.

It looks like your truck has never seen a dirt road in it's life. Very clean underbody. Nice. But you might still want to treat it with something like "fluid film" before the salty roads start eating your truck

I have been debating if I should take it to a paint shop or spray can it myself. I would enjoy the experience, but don't want to miss a spot.

If you are looking for someone to apply rust preventer, consider something like POR-15:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J2VULQ6/

Your paint shop should have something like that. If they do not, get something like that for them to apply.

The six (6) 4-oz cans above are a lot less than their 1-gallon can.

I used Loctite SF 574 Rust Treatment/ Extend Rust Treatment and i was very happy with it. Cheaper that POR15 and after the a few years i have no regrets. Still looks good.
