<VV> Rust-proofing a Late Model

Hi Michael.

12 years ago, after getting my car back from the autobody shop, I used some rather thin tar-like substance w/spray kit I got from JC Whitney. My interest is in the rockers, front dog legs, and rear quarters (ahead of the wheel wells) of my 'vert.    
I can report that after 12 years of use (including winter trips in the snow to night autobody class and frequent trips in the rain) that the results were rather disappointing (hence the autobody class).  Keep that car as dry as possible...

Hey, on ... uh ...  * GEARZ *   I think, on speed channel ...  they 
displayed a new interesting product by DupliColor,  " TrunkCoat " or some 
such... a rubbery roll-on gooey stuff ( do it yourself trunk bedding )  that 
looked as if it might be a good undercoat.

I have used rattle can undercoating, it is not worth the effort; maybe this 
Duplicolor rubberized material might be just what I then needed .... 
regardez ken campbell, lower Iowa

or google up Alox Corp... they compounded the original waxy type 
undercoating used by some name brand coaters.  Us shooters use it to 
lubricate cast lead bullets.

or... heh... visit New Orleans, maybe some of those gobs of raw crude would 
make a good undercoat ( sorry, just being fas-ee-shush ).
