Default Is it worth undercoating old truck?
I have an 84 ram. The frame does not have any thru rust, but does have surface rust, or paint rust I guess. Would it be worth undercoating the frame anyway? Or would covering up surface rust cause problems?

do you live where they drop salt or other metal eating stuff on the ground in the winter? if anything the best thing to do is just wash all the dirt off everything occasionally.
