Ming or Ziebart?
I used to work at Ming a long time ago. They have a special bay with a hoist to do the rust proofing but they just spray everything underneath with tar.Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
Rust check works very well. It's VERY messy after each application though. It'll drip all over everything for a couple days so don't plan to park in your garage or on a driveway if you go that route.
They showed me what they do now and they spray a ceramic coating between all your body panels to stop anything from penetrating
Good to know. They did mention it dripping but I hadn't thought about it to that extent. Definitely would park on the street for a couple days. Ideally not drive much if I can either. Once the dripping stops and its fully "cured" how is it to the touch? Is it just a mess on the undercarriage or does it solidify into that rubbery feeling material?
It never really solidifies. It doesn't really mess the undercarriage either though. From what I recall it is primarily used on/in body panels(fenders, doors, 1/4 panels). I wouldn't want to use a product that solidifies as what would happen when moisure gets underneath it?
I use a rubberized coating on my trucks frame. Works awesome. last longer and holds up to the elements better.
Rust Check definitely makes a permanent mess of the underside of the car. It does not dry, and touching anywhere it's applied will leave you greasy. Makes the car looks like it's leaking oil from everywhere. I hate working on cars that have been rust check'd. Probably the most effective rust prevention method though unless the car is brand new.
After talking to Ming, they use a product that lasts 2-3 years, but doesn't harden in a sense it would crack and moisture could get in. Sounds like the same rubberized, self-healing type of material. That was what I was worried about with Rust Check, that and needing annual reapplication.I think Ming offers a better product. It costs double, but will last longer and in the long run be a better value.
Do you have coilovers? If so make sure they don't tar up the threads.Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
This is what I got done at mings 2 years ago. It's been doing its job so far.
I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
So what's the answer for someone looking to prevent rust, but doesn't want to deal with that unholy mess anytime they work on their car? is Krown treatment better?
