Looks nice! I’ve debated doing the undercoating myself. I may need to try it.FLUID FILM BIG BROTHER
Has anyone tried the WoolWax formulation of Fluid Film. Thicker, with no smell supposedly. The fluid film wash off after a winter of use, so I may try this next fall.
Wool wax looks appealing.you need to use a high capacity compressor and heat that up un warm water first.
here is a video of the woolwax

I have been a long term annual Krown customer and although I think Krown is a good product, like any product it is only as good as it is applied. I have always thought corrosion free was superior as per the report you posted above as well as Krown being so darn thin as per their change in formulations few years prior. It simply makes a mess and does not last on the under carriage.This is the one I used and also a test report from the Canadian Military Collage.
Whether you call it rustproofing or undercoating Corrosion Free is here for you. Our product Rust Cure Formula 3000 protects your vehicle against damage caused by salt, de-icing fluids and winter driving conditions.

IMO you would be chasing your tail and spending a lot of money doing so. If you have a good rust inhibitor that actually sticks (see my post above) then existing rust isn't an issue. The corrosion free product actually makes much of the rust "disappear" as it makes everything look wet.I just had a good look at Valerie's nether regions. She's starting to rust, but not much, at least not yet. There's some edge rust around the subframe. But I think if I don't soon do something to at least slow it, it will get worse, like a virus (see what I did there?)
I'd like to take her to a rustproofing place that can first remove the existing rust with angle grinders or whatever they use for that, and I'm cool with leaving her there for a couple of days to get that done right if needs be.
What I don't want to do is coat the existing rust with a rustproofing compound. I don't have a hoist to do it myself (and I really don't want do do it on my back) and I'd like to find a shop that can remove as much rust as possible before applying any kind of rustproofing. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas. I'm in Toronto, give or take. Krown is the king shitz0r here, but they seem a bit too... retail, for what I'm looking for - I don't mind spending a few extra bucks.
I just detailed the car myself, and found rust in spots I didn't want to find it. Not bad rust, nothing that can't be stopped I think (spots like the door edges, the edges of the subframe, the edge of the tailgate, any side that's been spot welded, but just the start of rust), but nothing that I can stop myself. She's got 200k on her and unless the floors rot out, she'll last 500k - if I can keep the rust at bay and the engine running well.
So - for my fellow Canucks, and especially Ontarians (I'm GTA, but for the right shop I'll easily drive many hours), can you recommend a place that can do a decent job of removing the existing rust before applying a rust inhibitor?
And - for all you lesser folks😜... can you recommend any specific method to remove said rust? I can get under her on my back if I need to, but honestly, I'd rather pay someone to do that.
I'll be removing the engine shortly for a clutch replacement, if that makes any difference. I'm going to be (or my mechanic is going to be) replacing all the mounts and bolts.
This is because Iowa has the first caucus. HFCS and corn ethanol are widely used because of government subsidies (from you and me), mandates (laws) and politics. None of it is based on health, science, or god forbid common sense.Environmental vs Health concerns.
We live in such a strange world. In Canada, this is OK, but high fructose corn syrup isn't.
In the US, it's d*mn near impossible to find something without it. It's even in many things we market as being healthy. It's outlawed in most of the developed world. But not here, we like our corn juice. weather it be in the gas tank or the tummy. I wonder if high fructose corn syrup can be used a rust inhibitor? Or is it's sole purpose to make us fat?
