Last fall I posted about this an spent part 2 weekends in oct under pickup on cardboard on my back with flashlite an paintbrush an $10 cans fluid film with spray an paint brush on fluid film on rust on frame, suspension, under body, especally up under spare donut tire, supposed last a year but looks like could use again,I only really saturated up above spare tire, if bought a sprayer for $20 , that u pump up an a gallon fluid film, an spay everthing exept exhaust which try an cover, would that be best or would atm trans fluid in sprayer, be better ? With a sprayer it be better on hoist but can't do that

getting it down to bare metal first is best, with any type of sander
I'd use a belt sander on flat places if accessible
A grinder with flex wheel would also work or just a grinder

Forget getting it down to bare metal... Wire brush the loose rust off, and apply burnt cylinder oil with a paint brush....Nothing cheaper or better, IMO.

Most vehicles these days are galvanized metal and don't rust out.

Black oil(used motor oil) right over the rust,slap it on with a brush on a stick or a sprayer.
Best thing for rust prevention/remediation.

This has to do with the exhaust system.
My 1999 Silverado I painted the whole exhaust system with a "Hi Heat Aluminum Paint"
The paint was made by a local company for GM to paint Die Cast Machines. It was somewhat
quite liquid but full of aluminum flakes or powder. They showed it to me one time and it was like
grease almost before mixing. Aluminum powder is explosive.

The Good part -- I drove that truck 21 years and the exhaust was still in great shape when I sold it.
Something to think about treating in your vehicle.

Iím a huge believer in fluid film.I bought an airless paint sprayer at harbor freight.Work great but thereís areaís where you just canít access.Something that shoots a small stream of drain oil is in the works for me but that fluid film smells great-kinda like a dead skunk on a cool fall morning-(This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) I love that smell!

Multiple engine oil and tranny leaks work good

Never seen one of them non-rusting vehicles in Michigan. They must not sell them here....

Just leave it. You'll never ever get rid of it or even slow it down once it starts.

Dave I just bought a new vehicle (Toyota Tacoma) a year ago. Knowing trouble spots on frames and bodies is helpful. I sprayed Fluid Film on the frame and body panels and it really helped. BUT I still had some orange colored bolts and screw heads this spring!!
The only real solution is move out of the "Rust Belt"!!!!

Do this ^^^. Get a cheap sandblasting gun at Harbor Freight, stick the hose in a bucket of old oil, hook up air hose, and go to town. Used oil really sticks on rusty metal, it will soak in to the good metal.

Hoist the radiator cap and drive a new car under it.

I just pour big puddles of used motor vechile oil on the highway and drive back and forth acrosst it at a high rate of speed until the beneath of my vechile is thoroughly polysaturated with oil. Don't even have to get my back dirty. Baddabing baddaboom.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
