Default Rustproofing

Where do you guys in the GTA go to get your cars sprayed? I would like to get my car done before winter. I'm looking more for an undercoating, not what Krown does by drilling the crap out of a vehicle.

Any recommendation??
Thanks!

I went to Krown and requested they drill no holes and just use factory holes, they'll do whatever asked since your paying the bill. However I was also informed that my 2013 MT which I see is the same as your car (nice choice )lol the car comes with enough protection for the first season and need's treatment every 2 years only! I to want to have my car in great shape for a long time but my friend who does undercoating at his shop said that crap will just run everywhere as its supposed to yes, but too much and it just starts to make a mess! I'm still debating what to do, I may just go buy the spray can of Krown protector and do some key area's where the road salt & sand will tend to stay!

I'm debating on spraying my car as well, it's been sprayed with some kind of a coating from the factory already.

One of the best rustproofing in a spray can you could get is called Fluid Film which CT carries. I need to get underneath the car to take a look what I should do, undercoat it or do it myself.

True enough once you see how it's been so far you'll know more of what to do, but as for the factory thing that's what I was told and that I'm good for the first year. I'll definately look for that stuff you mentioned at CT as I'm going to do some vulnerable spots for sure, I can't afford to drive this as a summer car only been their done that not any more!lol

I'm lucky enough to have access to some pretty serious rust inhibitors from work. I sprayed the car myself with some good stuff and still had it done at krown. I don't see a big issue with them drilling holes. They used white plugs. You'll never know they are there. I sprayed my engine bay with ACF 50 and my underside with adrox AV30. The AV30 dries to a hard coat.

I used Krown, they drilled holes :C Did it on the first year I got my car...since I didnt know much. Shame though, they told me it'd stop dripping after 2 weeks. It still leaks >:C My car can never stay nice and clean lol OH WELL. Mind you I had it sprayed in like Oct/Nov of 2011 XD

Im guessing there are no such thing as a perm rust proof that will last you forever?

Anyone ever tried a place called Corrosion Free? Apparently their stuff lasts longer than Krown and there's no drilling needed and no drips, which would be great!!

Would rather wash my car more often because of the rust proofing, than have a car with rust in a few years. You will thank yourself in a few years because of the krown treatment, and your wallet/mechanic will aswell when it breaks down

I have had all my vehicle krown rust proofed all my life, I am a believer and have seen the results over my many years

Haha I hope so! I do tend to keep this car for a long long time! Should I be doing this every year?? Or can I do it every other year?

Krown would like you to do it every year, but every other year should be good. That's the way I'll be doing it.
