Anyone knows where to get Krown rust proofing stuff?

Any stores that sell these stuff?

I have the gun, looking to buy a gallon and rust proof my car.

Yeah, you'll be better off getting it done by them. I don't think you can buy it in bulk, only spray cans.

You can buy the Rust Check spray by the gallon at CT, I think. Not the same, but it's still something.

Thanks for reply guys.

Just picket up a jug (4.0 L) of Krown stuff.
I do have a compressor, a shutz gun and I have access to a hoist. I figured I'd do it myself.

I like that Rust Check spray; it smells delicious.

Where did you end up getting the jug o' Krown?

Rust check is decent, but I remember I paid about $20 for 1 Liter last year from Canadian tire.

For Krown, I paid $58 after tax for 4 Liters. From the reviews I've read on threads. Krown T40 seems to be better than other products.

I got it from:
Cotter's Auto Shop 1425 Woodroffe Ave. Ottawa - Nepean, ON

I did use RustCheck cans before. I think I used 3 cans, $10 each for 1 car.
For a Jug of Krown I believe you can do 2-3 cars.

FWIW, I know a guy who has seen some NRC testing on Krown and other rust inhibitors that say while the others work, Krown is the best. The main chemical component is the same thing that the US Military has used on their tanks to stop rust.

This reminds me that I need to get in to Cotters and get the car sprayed.

First winter in Ottawa... Anything wrong about getting this done before it gets cold out? I assume the cold weather helps in thicken up and not get washed off easily.
