I wouldn't fall for any undercoat gimmicks. For the frame, underbody, etc. you can use a rubberized undercoating. These are available in everything from sprayable undercoat (that requires an undercoat wand gun), to aerosols. I would recommend the sprayable kind for 2 obvious reasons; 1: sprayable is MUCH more durable and 2:Spray bombing the underside of an entire truck would take forever and COST A FORTUNE.
I'm from Iowa and work in a body shop and I can tell you that none of them are permanent, but if you use one, definately go with the sprayable.
As far as the oil pan goes, just try to keep it rinsed off in the winter.

Do not use a rubberized type, it will dry out and actually hold moisture and salt. Texaco makes a product that is just like cosmoline. It stays pliable like grease and never dries out. Amazing stuff that works awesome. You can only buy it in mini 25 gallon drums from a texaco distributor for about $250.00. If you can find a place that undercoats cars you can probably buy it by the gallon from them.You can thin it down with paint thinner and spray it out of a garden type hand pump sprayer. The thinner will evaporate and leave the protectant. In area's where you get alot of water spray like wheel wells will need periodic touch ups but with 25 gallons you will have enough for years as well as several vehicles. The really cool thing about this product is when it heats up from a hot day it actually begins to melt and flow into cracks and crevices that occur from simply driving the vehicle. If you want I can go get the product name off the barrel.

I would like to find undercoating made with the same material as bubble gum. Ever notice that bubble gum lasts on sidewalks for decades and even resists pressure spraying???
Seriously now.....anyone try this stuff?

Bubble gum gets hard and brittle, good try. Seriously, look into the Texaco stuff. I just realized this past weekend that my father inlaw still has his 1982 ford pickup and there isn't any rust on it. Go find another 82 with no rust.
