Default Question for you car/truck enthusiasts.

Had new running boards put on my ‘11 power wagon. While it was on the lift I noticed some rust starting at the seam welds.

Any advice on these kinda products?

It's all a gimmick, only way to stop rust and rust rot is to have bare metal and a product that outperforms everything else.

Any product on rust will do nothing. It will keep on eating it.

I've had success on preventing rust but I'm not sure if I want to give it out as I've been on that road and bought all those products, spending hundredSS$$ that failed.

A customer/friend of mine mixes 50/50 used motor oil and diesel and sprays his undercarriage with it, never had a vehicle rust out. I don’t have a place to do that safely.

If you want an awesome undercoating I use this. It stick real well on anything you spray it on. I use it instead or grease for our winters, it doesn't freeze as much.

It's the same product those a$$holes used for undercoating cars.(check the soap thread)
