Salt States - What do you do to stop rust?

What do you do to stop rust on your trucks? I just took about half a gallon of oil cut with a tad of diesel in a deck spayer and hit the underside of my truck.

Usually rinse the hell out of it after every storm!

The/A oil treatment like you did is pretty much the only way to stop rust.

Car wash every week unless it's still snowing badly out and they are still salting the roads.

Me too, car wash after every winter storm. Then come spring use a garden sprinkler under truck.

Anyone ever try that fluid film stuff?

I have been looking into it a lot this year. It's supposed to be safe for paint and stay on throughout the season.

I have heard good stuff about fluid film except it needs done more than one time from what I understand. I figure I bought cheap oil that was $10 a gallon. $10 will give me two treatments.

Undercoating with something ruberized can hold moisture.

Can't you use used motor oil? Do an oil change and you'll have plenty.

a guy at work (up here in canada) uses this gizmo he bought from crappy tire that charges the exposed metal. hes had a scratch on the roof of his truck that has not started rusting yet. maybe some of the snake oil does work. might give it a shot.

bailey

i do underground utilities and when installing metal water mains, they install cathotic protection every couple hundred feet. sort of the same thing maybe.
