Washington Rust Proofing Shops

Well as many of you know we now salt the bajeezuz out of the roads in Seattle, whcih doesn't mix well with all the metals on our trucks. With that said, has anyone in Washington found a good shop that specializes in vehicle rust proofing? These kind of places are all over the midwest and east coast, but salting the roads is new here in Seattle (2008 or 2009 I believe).

I know we don't get a lot of snow for it to be a big problem, but I was driving around the city all weekend and my truck was coated with a white layer of dust that took a lot of hosing to get off, slight overraction by the city? Yes.. That leads me to believe, while there won't be much snow, we will over-salt.

Last thing I want is for my truck to start rotting away becuase some hippies can't drive in the two inches of snow that shuts this city down.

They are near Tacoma and they do under-carriage coating and bedliners. They do good work. You can ask for Darren and tell him "that guy with the E-350 saw my question online and sent me."

That white stuff on your truck that takes forever to wash off is the de icer that this wonderful state likes to put down on the roads when they think its gonna freeze. It doesnt help out at all, it makes matters worse and destroys your wipers along with everything else. Get yourself a good de greaser, spray everything down, then spend alil time and money and paint the frame and everything else under your truck yourself. It dont take much.

I live in Eastern WA and all of that crap on the roads was destroying my '05. We get deep snow over here and sub zero temps all winter long so no way to wash it off. I used POR 15 all over the unterside of my truck recently and the places I couldnt get with a brush(the recommended aplication method) I sprayed with Rust oleum 2x gloss black. Now I will be avoiding driving my truck in the winter and just drive my '88 S-10 in the salt and deicer. My recommendation is to get a cheap $1,000 truck and save your PSD for pulling and hauling.
I need a heated indoor wash building with a flor drain..hmmmmm I think that might be the the ticket.
