A while ago I found a product on the internet called 3M Rust fighter (or rust inhibitor?) and a 3M Rust Fighter application wand. It looks like a perfect setup to rustproof your rocker panels and other concealed areas. I asked at least twice at the products website how the products are applied and used. Is a compressor needed, is it in a spray can like dispenser, does the applicator go directly onto the spray can (if that's what it is), etc.

The website I found it on is marvelously uninformative with no info. at all but a brief blurb, the price and a tiny photo that can't be enlarged. The two items are never shown together and I can't tell a darn thing about them from the info. given. I guess that it's just an article of faith that somehow they would work together (the similar name is my only hint) and that rust could just maybe be prevented.

I never once received any answer at all. Does anyone else here know about these products?

I find that company email is just a way to ignore any potential customers. Computers, the internet in general and emailed inquiries seem to me to be just a way to avoid providing customer "service". Remember that? Look at how unavailable your internet provider tends to be, and tech support for some problem software.

i dont know i did not read it all but thats the way they normally do , some stuff like it has a full cap that changes out with the spray one over here so i would think its the same or similar over there others use i push in like wd/40 but that can come out and make a mess

I was at another site.

Looks like a good product to me. Should get into rocker panels, etc.

Baz, you magnificent Baztard, you

Has anybody used this?

I would like to know how effective it is. If you ask me getting some kind of rustproofing into concealed spaces early, before any problem is a very good thing; especially in a humid environment.
Provided it's not just like "undercoating" which can only make things worse by concealing the problem. On my earlier GT's, I've found that rust travels under undercoating in the wheelwells before it's ever discovered.
