Chassis Rust Protection - Eastwood

Hi,

I am looking to take care of the light surface rust I have on my 110 and also provide a barrier against / slow down new corrosion. I have been looking at products that Eastwood has. Does any one have any experience with Eastwood or suggestions of other products?

Thank you
Ben

Just put this on another post but this is a very good option to consider. I have been using it for a few years now with great success.

Ben, this is a recent pic of my 18 yo chassis that has been driven on a daily basis here in Virginia for 12 years on trails, mud holes and salty NOVA roads.

I spray it down, inside and out, with WD40 a couple times a year.

I noticed WD40 loosens up a lot of grease gunk really well and dresses the chassis well. I suppose I need to get existing rust under control first then keep up with WD40.

yep I used it to clean an engine and trans before swap/install. Soak it with Wd40 and come back the next day with brake cleaner.

FWIW, Eastwood's "Exo-Armour" is written up in the January 2016 edition of Car Craft Magazine, which is out on the stands now. Sounds interesting - non-glossy & "invisible", so you're not covering anything up.

Hey guys. Is there a tutorial anywhere on the steps to take with rust prevention via WD40? Or is it literally just clean it really good and spray everything down?

I've found the beauty of it is its simplicity. You can't screw it up IMO. I'm sure if you got it on something you didn't want to you could hit it with brake clean. I teenage son and I were replacing brake pads on his D1 last weekend and his calipers look like hell. Mine have no rust or corrosion. He's jelly.

Think I'm going to start following this method. So do you just park on a tarp or something and spray the wd40 on pretty much anything that can rust on the undercarriage? Spray it and let it sit for awhile?

Thanks,
Greg

Yes, I use a garden sprayer and spray the inside and outside of the frame and crossmember, wipe down the hinges and roll bar and I use the can's straw to get into the weep holes of the doors.

I would recommend spraying lightly at the beginning to form a base. Let it dry and hit it again in a week or two. I feel now mine has a good base and really only requires touch ups. It not thick and messy but does a good job of fending off the sprays from the street year round.

Garden sprayer as in a pump sprayer? And you're buying WD40 by the gallon from somewhere?
