How does /o/ keep the rust off of their cars, especially in the winter with all of the shitty salt everywhere?

Do you just spray the underside of your car once a week?

You do realize cars washed more frequently rust faster in subzero climates right?
>>
>>14312432
Who's washing their car in sub zero temperatures

>>14312473
I do. My car stayed clean for 3 weeks in a row as it was like -20 all the time. No road salt. I have a garage admittedly. I should get a hose there. It would be easy to wash all the road salt off the wheel wells before driving it in to the warm to dry.

>Step one: buy a beater
>Step two: drive beater in the winter instead of nice car

If you're a super poorfag though, you can pay a shop to do an oil spray undercoating in the fall before winter to keep your undercarriage clean. it'll run you around $100 give or take depending on the shop. Then, just wash the road salt off your car every week or so.

Living in Florida is a pretty easy plan. I suggest you try it.

Move to California. It never rains here and it's basically a desert. Nice and dry, so no rust. Stay out of the mountains though...and the bay area for that matter.

Oil bath, Krown is pretty good.

About once a year I put the car up in the garage and remove the plastics. Then look for areas that have been compromised, wire brush them or use a brush wheel if possible, and apply something like POR15 to the spots.

This is for the underbody and areas not usually seen.

Paint stone chips with touch up paint in a timely manner.
>>
Lifelong Vermonter here, there pretty much isn't fuckall you can do about it. Fluid film helps a little bit but generally not really. The best thing to do is buy a car from a non-salt state, and sell it before the rust starts to appear on the exterior enough to kill resale value.

Some cars don't rust, others do within a couple years. German cars don't really rust, while 90s Japanese cars will fall apart at the very sight of salt. In Vermont, first-gen Tacomas actually don't exist anymore. I literally havent seen a single one on the road in months.

Most cars since the 90s are galvanized.

They still rust.

Seriously, my Canadian Jag is 100% rust free except for a bit on the rear arches. Underneath is fucking spotless. We get a shitfuck of road salt here, you can tell it hurt the alloys but not the undercarriage.

My '90 240 is galvanized and had undercoating but was no mach for leaks and standing water under foam sound deadening and a carpet. Had several serious holes that I patched using "Miracle Paint" and fiberglass. Makes a quick and easy lasting repair that is just as hard as the metal was and will not rust again.

Here's the starter kit:

After. Very strong, only two layers where the woven patches are, the chopped mat is the first layer.

>>14312305
pay 90-100$ (CND) for underbody spray every spring, wash it once every two-three weeks in the winter and keep an eye out for paint chips, they will only get bigger if not dealt with

personally ive been struggling with some surface rust and i don't know how to fix it
anyone know how much $$ it would run me at a body shop?
in the meanwhile i put vaseline on it

The oil undercoating ideally takes care of preventing most of that.

Drive junk in the winter and get rid of it when it's structurally compromised.

when I got my honda I took apart the areas that would typically get rust and slathered on some Por-15. I picked up an 01 civic June 14 with 73k on it, I want it to see 200k rust free. just ticked 100k

All cars have pluses and minuses right, some have electrical issues some are more inclined to rust, my question is as you weigh these potential costs which are outright super important to avoid?

Naturally if someone said "bud Id avoid the Ford Cruisemaster XX because its engine is known to explode" Id be like k, that would be expensive so Ill avoid that. Thats an extreme example but where does rust factor in on the scale of potential costs. Everything rusts
