I got quoted $300 from Ming for a Jetta

    When was that? If I get a quote like that for mine that would be nice. I just went off of the pricing currently on their website for their Custom Rustproof Package (rust protection + silent seal). I'm going there Thursday to have the car looked at and a quote put together.

            So I went to the location on Stapleton. I did mention the $300 quote, and the guy I spoke to wasn't sure what package(s) added up to that price. He offered me a coupon they have to knock $75 off the package I was looking at, which was nice. I've decided to only get my undercarriage and fenders undercoated this year to save me $200. It's not as thorough as doing inside the panels as well, but I may do that next year or come spring pull off some panels and do it myself.

              Id do it sooner rather than later. The rears like to rust from inbetween the panels, my 02 was brutal.

                do any of these places include cleaning off old dried up undercoating before putting on the new stuff?

                  I think a lot of shops can do that, but will probably charge extra if it needs to be removed. Ming will "top up" their undercoating after a couple years if some comes off.

                    Just wanted to update that I got the undercoating done at Ming and got the undercarriage and front/back fenders only instead of inside the panels as well. Cost was $250 after tax. Got to see it all done on the hoist and they did a great job. Will definitely go back if I need another vehicle done.

                      I bought a 1997 mustang 14 years ago. It had ming done to it some time before I bought the car(the ming package also coated the bottom of the doors and inside the rockers etc). I had seen some Mustangs (back then) of the time period pretty rusty to the point of rusted through. When I bought the car, the car was very clean in terms of rust and when i sold it 3.5 years ago it still looked very new and rust free. One of the more sold mustangs of the era.
                      Just thinking about rust proofing that oily stuff that never dries would probably be best used inside of frame rails/unit body frame channels and inside the bottoms of doors, inside rocker panels inside rear 1/4 panels. Those are the arias I would rust proof before undercoating the visible stuff. for the visible stuff (including floor pans, wheel arch lips, bottom pinch section of the doors make sure in the winter months you wash the car regularly. When I wash my cars I all ways wash the floor boards as well as get in and wash all the salt and mud out of the wheel arch lips, in the gaps of the plastic moldings and open the doors and low pressure wash the bottom edge. I think keeping the car clean when possible is very good for keeping it long term. My 1973 celica had rust coming from inside the front sub frame rail working its way out. So coating the inside hidden places is probably most valuable.
