Its approaching spring time, and all the salt/snow/slush has taken a tole on my undercarriage.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to removing the surface rust that has spawned up on the undercarriage metal part of the car. As of right now, it hasn't eaten through anything, and is just surface rust.
Basically I want to know how to detail the undercarriage of the car, and protect it.

if you're getting into extreme detail, you can scrub the entire underbody down with white vinegar for hours and remove all the rust...

then follow up with a glaze, i recommend klasse SG.

you could let the car sit 12 hours and apply another coat once the original coat has cured...

you're talking about some extreme time tho.

When using the white vinegar, what should I use to apply/scrub with?

Well, once you get it all removed and the surface is clean take it to a body shop and have them spray it. You can also coat it yourself with POR or something similar. Then you shouldn't have to worry about it happening again.

instead of scrubbing it,they make a rust remover spray that will eat it away. After adding it just wash it off. Then what i did was get about 6 cans of truck bed liner and spray it down. The pipping,all i did was put a high heat clear on it to seal it.

DO NOT pay some body shop to spray, or coat it yourself, all you will be doing is trapping moisture and already active rust under a sealed product, thats very unwise.


Take your car to KROWN, its Canadian and their product is superior to all others. (Tars, Waxes, Electronic and Especially Oils)



KROWN uses their T40 formula, its like liquid gold but at only $120 a treatment (which includes absolutely everything)

The product is very complex, designed by doctors actually.


It has creeping agents and REAL rust inhibitors, making all other rust proofing very inferior.



The product does its penetrating in 24hrs. after than you can TECHNICALLY blast it off with a pressure washer and strong soap or degreaser and say bye bye to surface rust and hello to nice dark protected metal.

once it is inside the metal it is active and protecting for 14 months




If you are outside of Canada, I think there are Rust Check's in the US which is not as good but probably the closest to Krown and Rust Check also uses a Penetrating Juice.


Hope this was of help.
