Undercoating??

Since I live in a major city and salt is a problem in the winter I am planning on a undercoating project, has anyone done this before if so please provide tips.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Most of the suspension is rust resistant aluminum. Most of the rest is covered by plastic. If I were you, I would either buy a beater for winter travels or clean the undercarriage in the spring.

You don't need undercoating these days.
