Rust Proofing. Non-drip or drippy?
 
I'm going to get my E34 rust proofed. I was thinking of using "Krown". I used them years ago and as long as I did it every year, my old RX7 and I drove that car for a long time. I had to respray every year for about a hundred bucks. I also would buy a can of Rust check and spray the wheel wells and doors etc.. every so often.

Now, a lot of places are using a non-drip type of rust spray. I just don't see how non-drip can get into all the crevices and and hidden areas. I used a non-drip once and it actually seemed to trap moisture in certain areas, causing my fuel line to rust out. The non-drip would bridge over the many gaps and cracks in the body.

Non drippy = Non seepy and non Creepy? :eek:

Any recommendations for rust proofing?

I once had a Krown guy rust proof the bottom with non drip and the rest with drip proofing.
Gravity feeds. Notice the car rarely rusts up top? usually all of it occurs on the bottom edges. If you get the non drip you can always follow up as you mentioned with periodic drip proofing. You have to keep on it. EVen the krown guy told me this.. JUST A SUGGESTION....I'm not liable for my comment. (Grin)

Maybe Krown or Rust Check to push any moisture out and the follow up with the non-drip.
Here's a link to APA's suggestions : http://www.apa.ca/template.asp?DocID=11

Krown sucks, take it to RMP. They're rust proofing is way better than krown, rust check or any of the other franchises. Cheaper too.
