My Bullitt is an everyday car and I plan to use it in the winter. Unfortunately salt is used on the roads, so I'd like to get my car protected. What do you all recomend Rustproofing it or Oil spraying it every year.
Good question...don't really know what is
best. I have sprayed WD-40 on non-painted
undercarriage components, this is very
lightweight though, so it may not last.
My DHG 3875 is a weekend/fair weather car
so for day to day winter driving in salt
and snow maybe rust proofing might be best.
I'm going to store mine but I did get this new electronic device for rustproofing thru the dealer and they guarantee all body panels for rust thru for life. And no messy oil or gunk all over everything. Its called an E.C.C. (electronic corrosion control). If you want more info I can try to scan the brochure and email it to you.
I rustproof at Krown. There is a great shop in Richmond Hill I go to. If you don't want holes drilled they won't. I had my 95 Ragtop done by them and all they had to do was drill 2 holes one in each door. These were hidden by the weather stripping. I'm going next week to have my car done. It's been on the road a week and I've washed it twice already. I need my rustproofing. We have more salt than snow right now in Toronto.
Krown is real good for rust prevention. One product we use around here for small machine or touch-ups is Fluid Film. Comes in a spray can as well as 4L (1 gal) cans. Inhibits rust and is very heavy so it doesn't wipe or wear off quickly. The label claims that it has capillary action so it wil wick into hard to reach areas. I;'ve used it extensively on my ATV for 4 years, and after being exposed to about everything in nature (including sea water) there is no rust on the bike.
