The oil idea probably works if you keep it up, but as a former mechanic I can say it makes them a total mess to work underneath.
Yeah I know what you mean, being a mechanic today I could see that oily goo being a mess to work with. Oh well sucks to be the mechanic that gets to work on my vehicles, oh wait thats me . Anyway I am seeing to many vehicle rusting now adays. I saw an 05 F150 with the cab corners rotted out. I am starting to see rust on my vehicles and want to slow the proccess, I hate buying cars, but I still want mine to look decent.
Thanks to all that replied, Eric
