yea, planning to use it as my winter beater then sell it after i have enough money to import a car. Can you tell me more about this rust proofing? and is it worth it? im guessing it would cost like 2000$ or more lol
if you are planning on getting rid of the car in a short time then I wouldn't waste your money trying to fix the rust. If you really want to get rid of it just sand it down, use a rust inhibitor like rustcheck or por15 and paint the spot just to cover it up. It's a quick and cheap fix but the rust will be back in 2-3 years. If you do the prep work yourself you can take it to a place like maaco and they will paint both quarters for about $300. The quality is eh but it's better than seeing rust in most cases.
Rustproofing is done to cars to prevent rust from occuring but it will most likely happen regardless. For rust proofing to be applied the area will have to be free of rust otherwise it won't work. There are three major rustproofing options; electronic module, tar like spray/undercoating, and an oil based spray. Not sure how well the electronic one works but it's supposed to change the charge of the metal and make it rust resistant. The tar based one is essentially just a goopy tar they spray to the underside of your car or in wheel wells. It's dirty and messy but it stops water and salt from penetrating it. Oil based sprays get sprayed into different areas of the car (doors, fenders, etc.) and the oil prevents water and salt from getting to exposed metal. Price can range from $100-$1000+ and results may vary.
