I agree with YO and GT. If ya don't take care of the underside, there wont be a "topside" to worry about. After all the bodywork I did on my 97, I am looking at Fluid-Film for my truck.

Is it weird that I'm actually looking forward to hand washing my truck every week?
Don't worry; in time you will get over that.

I park outside. My vehicles get washed once a year whether they need it or not. Well that exaggerates a bit but I don't worry too much. When the trees are done dumping pollen I think about washing it.

I could park in the pole building but the mice and squirrels do more damage than the trees outside do. However I have just rolled out my latest weapon against them so we will see.

It used to be that Oregon did not put anything on the roads but gravel, but now they spray some liquid stuff. I don't know if that makes cars rust or not. Government is ever helpful.

PAULBX, if that is the sticky salt water brine they use around here its bad. that is why i go through the wash every 2 weeks and after every snow,ice storm. most important part is the under wash. remember, we don't have the solid cast iron frames of the past. this stuff is to metal, what termites are to wood.

Just wondering if you put an aftermarket rustproofing, wouldn't it void the rust warranty? I think I would wait after the three year warranty to do it or maybe the dealer has rustproofing that they do or that is recommended by them that they would deem acceptable.
