Yes I did it myself, I sprayed a bit under the sideskirts (working underneath the car) and a small amount got sprayed on the side skirt gasket.
Come on Joe its not rocket science, unless the stuff they use at the Rust Check shops is different from the stuff they sell at Canadian Tire (which I doubt), I don't see how its not the product.
BTW, E39 doors have a rubber gasket under the doors, something to consider if they are to spray under the doors.

I'm sure Rust Check is a fine product, all I meant is it might react with rubber. Even Krown might do it, but from the reviews I read, Rust Check is more likely to react with a "virgin" or untreated rubber.

There is one after Bank and Hunt Club (forgot the name), they put the car up a hoist and spray from under.

I'm not saying it's rocket science but it's a little complicated with drilling the holes and making sure you get every single crevice.

Is it the same or better? Beats me but you're experience isn't exactly representative of an entire company or it's products.

AFAIK, something is better than nothing and if you're considering Krown or Rust Check, I'm sure either is fine. I chose RC because the guy down here that does has a bullet proof reputation. Luxe Auto on Vimont in Orleans...
