Is anyone rust proofing their car for the up coming winter? If so, where are you taking it, to get it done?

Damn near identical. I have a good relationship with one Rust Check location's owner (Markham/Finch), should be going by there this week and I plan to see if I can setup some kind of discount for maX members.

I'll post here and elsewhere if I get something rolling.

i think im the right guy to talk to about rust proff lol i own a tin can that loves rust u can even hear it rusting as we speak. but heres what i do every year
i cut a javex bottle in half dump old oil and a new tube of crease ,mix it up just like a cake and with a paint brush apply to areas of the inner body of the car so it seals it up for the winter.

Isn't it only around $100? Let me know what the discounted price will be. I'm doing it on the E30 too.

Thanks.

I can get rust proofing done for you guys (underneath only) for $79.95 at Akal Auto in Rexdale (409 & martingrove are). They use DuraGaurd which is top notch stuff. And I can get you a $10 discount at Krown with an Akal Auto business card. They can do the oil rust proofing.

The rust proofing includes shampooing underneath, drying, and then the undercoating. PM me if any one is interested as I know they only have this special going on for a few more weeks only.

Something like just over $100+tax, so around $120 I think (but this was a few years back, not sure now). This is the full oil treatment with drilling and all (it sounds painful, but it's by far the best and safest way to do it).

My price is a good bit below that, I'll see what I can do for the group. Going in tomorrow.

kal is duraguard better than the oil?

Mystikal
10-17-2005, 05:21 PM
The problem with Duraguard is that it should only be applied to cars less than 2-3 years old (preferably brand new), because you're essentially sealing in any corrosion already taking place (internal, you can't see it yet).

Kal

I really can't say one is better then the other as I only used Duragaurd.

Mystical, it can be applied to older cars and will still be effective.

i see that dripping is the way to go. the dripping will go into all the little cracks and get everything, and when they drill it, you don't even notice they did it.
i got it last year for $100 + tax

Hahaha, just got back. As soon as I mentioned "I'm in a club, it's a bunch of guys with BMWs that want-" and I was suddenly cut off. He doesn't want anything to do with BMWs; apparently just getting into the panels and such takes twice as long as American or Japanese cars, they're built too damn intricately.

Prices went up this year too, by $10.

Suddenly my coil-overs make no noise whatsoever though. Been meaning to fix that all year!

Mystical, they're right. It does take twice as long to do a BMW.

You guys should really consider Duragaurd.
