For the rustproofing...
So I've read most of your rust prevention posts, and thank you for them all! Very detailed and very informative.
Did you put yours up on a lift to treat your rust-belt FJ? I couldn't imagine scooting around on my back under the FJ with rust falling into my nose, mouth, ears, etc as I wire brush it off, or getting paint all over my garage and myself, etc, etc - it doesn't sound like a easy task at all(!), and that's why I've gotten two quotes on having someone do it for me, but I worry it won't be done as thoroughly as I would like.
One shop is a larger shop that a lot of local car dealerships send their new cars to get rust proofed, and the other is a small mom and pop shop that's been around since the early 1900's. I felt more comfortable w/ the smaller shop, as the tech allowed me into the shop to show me the rust and to show me exactly what he will do which consists of knocking the rust off w/ an air hammer, cleaning it and then painting it. He also said he would shoot POR15 into the frame if I bought it for him.
The other shop (the larger one) take a more Ziebart approach with high temp pressure steaming of the rust and parts, then painting it in some way, and also filling the doors and other parts of the body where appropriate. Also, they said they would re-paint the car for free every year for as long as I own the car.
Both are asking $600.
I would love to be able to have access to a lift in a garage for a weekend as I do know I would do it the correct and thorough way following the steps you've so graciously posted, but that is out of the question as I don't know anyone in the car repair bizz.
I'm not sure if I'm asking "what would you do" or if I'm just venting, but I really want this done before winter. I'll keep the forum posted as to what I do, and again, many thanks for the info you provide to this forum. It's much appreciated!
