OIL SPRAYING - from one canadian dude

i was wondering, my car has no rust, just got it and i want to rust proof it.
now do I:

1.use ruberized asphalt in a spray can
2.oil spray at the joint and let them drill doors, trunk etc?

have you done any of this, and if you did what method did you use?

There are companies that specialize in rust proofing cars. I would go see one of them before taking a can of WD40 to the car, because that is not going to do anything for long term. Maybe if you coated anti-seize on everything

Once my sis took her cavi to the oil sprayng garage, engine bay after that was sooooooo dirty, thats why i think i would possibly do better job.
Engine bay in my civic and the engine itself is clean as an operating room.

Re: OIL SPRAYING - from one canadian dude

I've sprayed my car with the oil style rust proofing since day 3 of owning my car. I would have taken the car on day 1 or 2, but I was occupied with my time. Yes they drill holes in your doors, and spray inside your doors. It does leave underneath your hood greasy, and messy. However, it won't really harm your engine. It just doesn't look appealing.

Unless you have a show car, and need to keep your engine bay clean for shows. I'd go with the oil spray rust proofing.

From one Canadian dude to another - Take your car to a specialist that will spray the entire car: undercarriage, under the doors, hood, etc....

I have tried the major ones like rustcheck and Metropolitain (montreal only I guess), and the best is Krown as it is thicker and could last 2 years between sprays.

I recommend you spray the car in September when the weather is still warm, to allow the oil to penetrate well the car and all those small places. I would also recommend you treat it again in May the following year, if you are a freak like myself.

Hope this helps

Cheers
