Secret Subaru compound sprayed on wheel wells for rust protection!

This would seem to be the responsibility of whoever did the repair, and don't let them spray over rust either.

The first is something that looks like typical undercoating.
The second is this blue waxy stuff that I had never seen before until we started to install a trailer hitch on my friend's 2006 WRX.
If you want hardened coating, you could Rhino-liner or Line-x on there. But that gets expensive for this application.

I noticed a few spots of rust on my '97 OBW, specifically bubbling paint on the control arms in a spot or two. That'll get some POR-15 dabbed on, too... thankfully it's nowhere near as bad as the '00. Seeing as it started out in Colorado, I'd guess they don't use a lot of salt out there...
I don't have any personal experience with it yet, but I've asked around a bit... nobody has anything really bad to say about it, and most say it's good stuff. I plan on knocking off as much loose rust as possible with either a wire brush or a wire disc on a battery powered drill, then coating it with POR-15, then spraying that cheap rubber undercoating crap over it, as soon as the POR-15 has set properly.

I asked the service guy while we were picking it up for some details... apparently they spray the inside of the rear subframe assembly. They don't treat the exterior subframe, so I'm still stuck with dealing with that.
