Where do you guys do your rustproofing picking up a used GT-R and want to get it rustproofed in case I drive it in the winter.

What rustproofing are you referring too? I was assuming you were taking about the rustproofing that gets sprayed inside the door panels, fenders and quarter panels.

canada probably has the best rustproofing spots with all that bad weather. have you heard of rustcheck? i heard they spray an oil to the car to separate it from the rust. im just not sure if like some snake oil scam or something.

No nothing like that. The method is used quite a bit.
It’s red and thin like hydraulic oil.
Some auto body shops carry it but perhaps there are specific shops down east and the Maritimes as they would be exposed the most to salt.

My last GT-R was driven year around in Nova Scotia for 6 years....I didn’t have it sprayed for rust but would always take it through car washes with the under body spray anytime the roads were dry to get as much of the salt off as I could. The only spots that started to get some rust were the front and rear steel subframes...if I were to drive a GT-R again in the winter I would at the very least have these areas sprayed.

From my research the best product right now is Rust Cure formula 3000 which is sold/applied at Canadian Tire! If you google it you will find a study done by the Canadian Military where it shows this is the best product as per their testing.

I'll be picking up my GTR likely in the fall. Looking for recommendations in the GTA area (Ontario) to get rustproofing done. Is Rust Cure Formula 3000 mentioned above still a good option?
