Hello Evan,


Have you tried one of this "Rust Protection" places? I'm in Canada too and last year I tried the "Krown" one... No sure if really will be effective in the long run, but this year so far looks like at least the original corrosion on my car hasn't been increased. In this way hope you can keep your car alive for another couple of years...

Hey Pedro, Well I did test out Krown the one year. I was given 2 cans by a local mechanic. I don't have the funds to have an actual application done. I would like to try and do the same thing this year. I am having trouble finding the spray-able cans of Krown though. No local stores sell it. I hate Rust so much! People who don't have to deal with it don't realize how lucky they are. I feel a sense of dread each time I even look under my Corolla. :(

Bought the car with 125000 miles. I’m going to replace radiator, Tstat, rotors/brake pads. I’m also considering replacing all 4 shocks/coils and lower ball joints. With 230000 miles should I consider replacing anything else?

Thanks
