Anyone ever had their Flex rustproofed? Recommendations? (we won't use the dealer) We live in Canada and with the amount of salt they use on the roads I would love to get this done.
As a fellow Canadian, I appreciate your concern about salt. Combined with the Canadian tendancy to keep your car longer than our Southern brothers...I would not hesitate to recommend using someting like Krown or Rust Check. The only issue I have with either of these products is the tendancy for them to cause rubber door gaskets to swell up when they are applied over the whole car by these shops
My own practice is to purchase 2 cans of RustCheck Spray from Canadian Tire, and very lightly spray the bottom edge of the doors (clean them first) and then the inner panels of the hood and into the bottom holes of the rear hatch. By doing this myself, I save money and don't have to worry about the rubber gaskets going all funky. The product really does creep into the small areas, don't be too fussy about getting 100% coverage, just a light spray is enough.
When Spring arrives, wash all this stuff off, and enjoy a clean car until December.
