What do any of you plan to do for this. I plan on using CRC rust protection on everything I can spray from the underside. It’s like cosmoline. Do any of you have ideas?
I am from the northeast (and have to be careful what I say) I am one of those people who apply salt, salt brine, mag chloride to the roads to keep the roads clear for the public. Anyone have experience with Fluid Film or Woolwax?

Out here in Hawaii the salt is in the air. If the wind is blowi g your getting salted. Aluminum body panels is helpful, but i would have preferred the whole shell to be alloy. There isnt really much that can be done here except frequent washing, however we live off of 1000 gallons of catchment water(hopefully a 10,000 down the road) and the water at the car washes is slightly suspect in its quality. If it possible with this bronco I would like to do a 1 inch body lift to eliminate the sandwiched spots where rot can form. Also it will give room for those 37s while maintaining geometry. We shall see. Hopefully i can have a no carpet on the floor and drain holes!

I use fluid film on all my stuff. Pellet stove, guns, I watched lots of videos on rust proof (YouTube). Before I even drive this thing, I’m putting it on a buddy’s lift and coating the heck out of the underside. Looking to see what others have tried. Think I will try this

I had a Ziebart treatment done on an '86 S10 Blazer when it was new. Was pretty happy with results. Seems I recall there was some hole drilling involved - so they could get body panel access for their application wand.

A little different subject....but similar ....kind of.... is anyone planning on soundproofing the underside of the Bronco?

I know with my old escape it was all the rage at the time, but I never did it....I won’t be removing the roof (hearing issues), so I wonder if soundproof coating the underside will help.

Also, the mirror on the old escape created a large amount of wind noise.....I wonder if that will be an issue on the Bronco.

Thanks.

Most of that mirror noise was actually air noise from inside the A pillar, between the door and the body.
I worked at one of the plants building Escapes and Mariners. Ford service bulletin amounted to a self stick foam block stuffed in there. I installed those in my son's 04 and the wife's 05 and they worked pretty good. Still in her 05 the grandson beats around in.

My 2001 never got anything like that.... mine is still a daily driver :cool:

I know when driving with the mirrors folded, it was quieter.

On noise suppression in cars, I thought you could just spray the bottom and you were good to go.....doing some googl’ing I see most disassemble the interior and apply heavy sound mats under the carpeting and behind the interior panels...
...um....I don‘t want to disassemble a new Bronco.
