Krown rust treatment - pics

Just got home from Krown after having my truck rust sprayed before it's first winter. I did this on my last truck too, but waited a couple of years and rust had already taken hold. This time, I did it right away. They did a good job as usual, but it is kinda messy for a few days after. They also drill holes into the pillars and doors to spray inside. Then they apply white grease and a plastic cap. Truck will go in once a year for this treatment.

No, its not the same as the dealer undercoatings. Dealer undercoating usually are a wax or tar based product and it goes on thick. Problem is that cracks eventually develop and rust starts and then spread behind the product. You don't see it until its too late. Krown is a thin oil that is applied annually. It keeps the metal oily rather than waxy. I've researched this to death and Krown seems to have the best reviews and results.

No scam with that stuff I been using it for years IMO it's the shizzt to use heres a few pics of my 98 when I took it apart it has been sprayed yearly since new






you can see here the inner box, it is pretty clean for a 12 year old truck, even under the box you can see the green factory "E Coat" and the box bolts were unbolted with ease







Heres a spot on the frame I scraped off to see how it held up over the years



The frame has a couple of rust spots but for the age its pretty clean

Krown or Rust Check, you can't go wrong. I'm a believer, and have been for many years, especially if you buy your truck new and get it sprayed regular right from day one.

There's something to be said for doing inside the doors and all the nooks and cranny's - always remember the "corrosion by design" analogy I heard one time, that basically stated the drain holes for the doors were above the door seams, which allowed water to sit in there and promote corrosion.

The Rust Check/Krown gets in there and displaces the water. One friend of mine checked inside the doors of his car five years or so after the first application and was surprised to find that even the filings from the holes they drilled to allow access weren't showing any signs of rust.

Long story, but it's really good stuff, I'll second the comments SKRWZ made fo sho.

Here are some pics of my previous truck, a 2007 Toyota Tundra. This is what it looked like after its first winter without any rust protection. This is also why I got my F150 done right away.
