So, I live in Northwestern PA. I've always been a fan of doing some type of undercoating on my vehicles to help resist the winters and road salt. I am curious what others do.
My current strategy, which worked well on my last 2 Tundras:
1.) When new - I take some oil based tractor paint - black - from Tractor Supply and I coat as much as I can underneath. I do this during the first week of ownership.
2.) I use FluidFilm and undercoat frame and sheet metal, and spray inside panels, doors, tailgate, etc. I just bought a sprayer and use tubing to blast where I need and in nooks and crannies.
I guess I may be OCD about rust...but I hate it. My last Tundra had 90,000 miles on it and looked awesome underneath when I traded it. That was through 5 winters. Personally, I also think that when you go to trade or sell, people can appreciate that you probably are taking good care of the vehicle if they look underneath and it looks good.
Curious if/what others do...
