Massive Rust Through - Doh!
Posted 01 February 2009 - 02:12 PM
What tricks do you folks have for hiding/slowing this disaster until the weather warms up? While my Subie is still caked in road salt, I can see the rust coming completely through on the bottoms of all my doors and the wheel wells. It's been a brutal winter here in Chicago snow/salt wise.
Aside from cosmetics, what suspension parts should I be keeping an eye on after 14 salty Chicago winters?
I'm off to the car wash. Hope the sprayer doesn't blast holes through the rusted panels... Doh!

What I've seen done in the past is to blow grease through the holes with a grease gun. It virtually stops the rot in the locations where you can get it in. Other than rust proofing your car from new with oil guard or similar, and redoing it each year prior to winter, there really isn't a satisfactory solution. Move to Arizona?

once it gets holes in it in lots of places, its better to locate a rustfree car from out west and ship it to you, if you like the year of car and style you have, dont even try to find one local to replace it with, gotta look to the west.
