Hey everyone-- I moved back to the great Northeast after six years in the Southeast and after two winters up here am getting serious about rust protection/prevention for under my truck. I've seen everything from people applying rhino liner and the like as well as other spray on layers. Just curious as to what you guys have found works best (there is some surface rust under my truck so it's not exactly a clean application) and what shops you recommend to do a good job. Unfortunately work is pretty volatile and so I don't think I'll be able to tackle this one myself given time restrictions. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you!

First thing i do to any new truck i buy is coat the whole under carriage body panels including the inner fenders and bed rails with rustoleum truck bed coating. only thing that will kill these chevys is rust.

Are there places that specialize in these applications (I would assume there are) or are most of you guys just using body shops to do the work? Whats the average cost for a full job that yall are seeing

Buy a good respirator from 3m with a organic vapor filter and 5 cans of Rustoleum truck bed coating. Much cheaper and you have the pride/story to show people you did it yourself. Side note wear work clothes your not concerned about to much lol.

Ive done this before with POR15 and Eastwood coating. Would really like to see it done officially and the right way, considering the investment here on this rig. Oh if you ever use POR15, it will stay on your skin for about three weeks and thats not an exaggeration

Did you google for auto undercoating in your area? I would thin that there are quite a few of them. Krown would probably be my first choice if they were reasonable close. South Main Auto You tube channel did a couple of videos about the process last year and I was impressed with how they applied their product. It went EVERYWHERE, and that's what you need.

Glad to hear the "thumbs up" for Krown. I just had them do my truck, but that was in St. Louis.
