Rust Proofing - Ziebart or Krown?????
They offer a 10 year warranty if i go every year and pay $45..
Is this worth it?
Any other recommendations go get a brand new car rust proofing done (2006 Honda Odyssey Touring)?

Sorry forgot to mention the coupon, Print the coupon out and you get a free can of spray (3 choices - I think 2 are lubricants and 1 is the actual rust proof formuale which I used on my bros 93 civic hatch)
Also I heard that these guys do the fleet of the city's salt trucks, aswell as other city vehicles. Cant go wrong there

Thanks - the car should be fun.chansen wrote: ↑Dec 13th, 2006 12:18 pmKrown is the better stuff. Penetrates seams, acts as a chassis lubricant, and displaces water from electical connections, besides being an excellent for basic rust prevention. Ziebart provides a little extra sound deadening, but may actually hold water against the body if water finds a way around.
Now, I once Ziebart'ed a new Ford Contour in 97 (for some stupid reason), and the mechanical bits wore out at 150K and 5 years, long before the body showed signs of rust. No need to rustproof a crappy car that won't last.
But I bought a used 99 Acura two years ago and had it Krowned for the first time right away. Still no rust behind the wheels, as is so common with Hondas.
The best time to get your car Krowned is the summer - the oil creeps more readily into seams. But getting it done in the winter isn't a bad idea.
The warranties for these companies usually aren't very good. You don't get Krown for the warranty - you get it to keep your car rust-free.
Other precautions you should take include fixing stone chips and waxing your car before winter. Washing it after heavy salt use is a good idea as well.
BTW, what's the difference between rust proofing and undercoating?
Edit: Just saw you're getting a new Odyssey. Nice car..

I've heard about those but apparently they don't work as well ...nsr250 wrote: ↑Dec 13th, 2006 11:36 pmAnyone have experience on the electronic rustproofing? Those small computer boxes where you just bolt under the hood of the car and run of couple wires to the chassis and its supposed to send electrical signals to the car's body to keep it rust free? Sounds like it doesn't work well but less messy than spray

Junk. If you don't want the mess of oil spray, just wash your car often in the winter.nsr250 wrote: ↑Dec 13th, 2006 11:36 pmAnyone have experience on the electronic rustproofing?
