Hi,
Just bought my new Civic and i would like some feed back on which rustproofing method to choose, grease or oil??
I live in Montreal QC where the winters are bad and the salt on the roads are gonna eat your car up if you don t get it rustproofed.
I would like to keep my Civc for more than 10 years.The APA recommends Krown for oil or Barry s Rustproofing for Grease.....
The difference between the 2 is an annual treatment of about 115$ for Krown and a one time application of about 400$-500$ and a 100$ check-up after 3 or 4 years for the grease.
Krown drills hole in the panels for the oil to penetrate as for no holes for the grease.....
I had a 2002 Accord which i treated every year from new at Metropolitan Rustproofing at 75$ a pop, no rust , except for a spot on my trunk under my wing.The negatives about Metropolitan is that it warped my rubber moldings on my hood and doors and the employees take only 15-20 minutes to do the whole process and they look like they don t really give a &?%& about the work they are doing.
So i would like to have some feedback and personal experiences on oil and Grease please!!!!!!

Sweet Home Alabama. Snow sucks. Salt sucks more. I feel for you guys freezing to death while cars rust out. But then there are drawbacks to living in Alabama. Football isn't one of them.....

Wish I can share the love with you guys but Houston dont get much of snow but if we do like last year for one day, it was bumper cars....:p Apparently it turned everyone into the day of driving. Bless me for knowing drifting (not that it helps much on ice) and driving in colorado.

I've been doing annual Krowns for $115. They seems to do a good job, and they put lots of the stuff all over. The car is literally dripping for days.
