Oil Pan Temporary Coating

So i bought a starter kit from kbs coatings with there rust seal that I am going to do the my oil pan. It has some rust, but not bad yet. Anyway, it says to do above 55 degrees and its about 20 here now with no real hope in sight for anywhere near 55. I asked them if i could do it anyway and they said wait until the suggested temperature range. So my question for you guys is, is what temporary coating would get me through the winter, and be easy clean up in the spring when i go to do this. Used motor oil? Something of that sort or would that attract more salt and make it worse once it wore off?

I brushed on used oil on my entire under coat and it works good for a month or so it makes the water bead up and not get on the paint but after a few washes it came off but it wasnt hard to put on just time consuming but if your just doing your oil pan it shouldnt be that bad

You could run the truck and let it cool down somewhat then apply it. It might also aid in curing time as well. -Jason

And are you talking about the kbs or oil? The kbs stuff cures in 24 hours the guy told me so thats kinda out of the question.

Those Urethane paints (KBS - POR - etc) are moisture cured, so Winter's kinda out of the question...

If you go to Home Depot, they should carry a product from those Blaster guys (PB) that's called Corrosion Stop in a spray can. Maybe, when completely dry & warm, give that a try. I "hose-down" the undercarriage of my truck with 6-10 cans/yr

So when the truck is warm and dry or the weather is warm an dry? Im guessing the prep stuff that comes in the kbs kit would strip this stuff right off when the time come in the spring to coat it?
