Default Rust proofing

What are you doing to control rust corrosion on your truck?

My 06 is spotless underneath if I do nothing a few New York winters will reign havoc, the days of professional rust proofing is gone it seems to be a diy thing now, my plan is POR-15 on the frame and hard iron parts and Fluid Film for all the under body sheet metal, probably be a seasonal maintenance thing since I am in NY.

lawn monkey, you can undercoat your truck with the dupont latex based bedliner paint available from autozone or advanced auto parts stores.
i recently painted this in my truck bed and it works great.
it is latex based and it is rubberized and contains chunks of kevelar in it so when it dries it is fuel and water and oil resistant as well as chip proof.
when it is still wet you can wipe off any overages on parts you don't want covered but when it dries it's like concrete.
they make a sprayer that is compatable with this pait or you can use a paint brush or roller.
they sell it by the quart.
the kit for the bedliner has a gallon in it,and for larger than a half ton bed an additional quart is reccomended to cover the bed.
2 coats are reccomended for coverage and it takes arond 2 hours for a coat to dry

Drive up to Canada and get it Krowned. Krown rust proofing is an annual application and since it flows into all the nooks and crannies it offers excellent protection. I've gone though three winters and have no rust.

That's great news I was not aware that they have moved into the US market. Just an FYI the best time to have it done is in the spring since the product moves with the warm summer temps. I have mine resprayed in April. Most people have them done in the fall so no worries They also provide their own rust through warranty if you have this done when the truck is new. Thanks for the reps.

Krown is about the best, and very thorough. You could also use fluid film, or LPS3. Both are sold in bulk if you feel like rolling around under the truck with a spray gun. Personally I would not apply a paint like coating on anything but a brand new truck.

On another web board I belong to guys are staying clear of Por-15. One guy who cleaned his Cuda down to bare metal and then Por'd it before paint is now having to take it down again because rust has come thru the Por. He is not a happy camper. Another guy who is a great bodyman and very meticulous about his work has had many a vehicle come to him with Por and had to redo the bodies in areas that have been done with Por and he would personally advise anyone to stay away from it.

POR-15 is Paint Over Rust, knock down the heavy and loose rust and apply, if you clean down to bare metal and apply you've done it wrong, POR-15 is top shelf stuff hard to beat it

My point was that he had rust develop and spread over areas that were coated with Por.

I hear ya but your friend applied it wrong, if you apply as directed by manufacturer POR-15 is a superior product,

My Por-15 project was a 79 F-350 Dump truck it was about 90% rust on the dump body and 100% on the frame rails, I did a very light sandblast to knock the rust of then sprayed the whole body and frame rails in POR-15 and no top coat, the truck was an all season work truck I ran it 12 more years the rust on the body never came back, the rust on the frame was starting to poke thru in a minimal way at spring mounts and such, POR -15 did an awesome job
