Protection against rust?

We live on the water in Florida, so things tend to rust rather quickly here. I realize that our D90's exterior is mostly aluminum, but i'm sure lots of stuff under the hood etc are prone to rust without proper care.

Does anyone have advice for the best possible steps that we can take to safeguard against rust? (and how often we should take them)

thanks in advance for any pointers!

Waxoyl. Hard wax for exterior ( frame and other steel components underneath)
and 120-4 in cavities, inside frame and bulkhead.
For repairs, use Antiseize on fasteners.
Replace non-load bearing bolts with ss

After playing on the beach, give her a bath...

Good luck...

Cheers...

Thank you, Mike! Any advice regarding often should I apply Waxoyl, hard wax on the exterior and 120-4 in cavities, etc.?

I already had Waxoyl applied, but I'm not clear on how long that kind of treatment lasts....

Also spray waxoyl in the bulkhead and hardwax on the underside where stones get kicked up through the hole in the bottom of the inner fender.

Waxoyl is a good idea. I also heard that someone with 300k miles on his D90 installed marine application sacrificial anodes to the frame. He felt this slowed/prevented rust significantly.

I had a "Counter Act" system on my old Jeep, seemed to work well.

I also use a industrial wax that is very thin when strayed then dries into a pliable film. I use this in seams, it will wick into the tightes areas, better than the 120-4.
I have used this with success for years on all my vehicles.
