Hoping you used something oil based like Fluid Film.

Have it on m 2015 Chevy. So far so good. I tried Fluid Film but that actually softened the factory undercoat to the point you could scratch it off with your finger nail.

My 2000 7.3 F250 would still be with us as the motor only had 120k on it if rust hadn’t taken her before her time. Gone too soon RIP (rust in pieces).

Any idea of the rough cost from something like this?

$1400, not cheap, but Is a 4 day process. Tough being without my new ride for so long, but hopefully worth it if it is protected from the crap they coat the roads with now. While the roads maybe safer from snow and ice our vehicles take a beating.

I tried a small section of Fluid Film on my Chevy and found it softened the factory undercoating to the point you could scratch it off with your finger nail. I ended up using it on my plow instead.

Interesting... Glad you warned I'll be sure to test before going full send

I have used the combination of rubberized undercoating and primer/painting on vehicle frames in the north driving in very salty roads. You have to make sure you apply it to a very clean surface- remove all traces of rust, etc. If down to bare metal primer first. Yes some of the undercoating chips and comes off over time and I would inspect the frame after every winter and do a little scraping, sanding and re-undercoating touch up. I found that even better than the undercoating is to use truck bed liner spray.

Fluid film is fantastic...works much better than "professional" methods in my experience, even on my Toyota frames which rust when you look at them. Just apply it liberally on everything underneath before winter and then again before summer, and it works great. 2x a year worked really well for me. Great stuff, and cheap and easy.

Test a small section first. Might have just been an anomaly with my Chevy.

Worked great on my Fisher X Blade plow.
