RE: Floor & Vent RUST?

Has anyone in the list used the rust and salt spray that Seadoo puts out
for coating there engine compartment?  As bad as ocean water is
directly.....you would think that this stuff would be good on salt air.
This spray is said to be safe to use directly on engine components.  As
people in the list were saying....I believe it was Greg, spraying oil in
panels will keep rust somewhat under control.  This spray seems as if it
would be an alliterative to the oil mess.

	On your rust problem , how about putting a shopvac on the
	under the seat, then using high-pressure air to blow the crud
	down the line?  I blew mine out when I had the rocker panels
	fixing rust holes in the heater channels, an air blow gun worked
	wonders.  I followed that up with some rust converter stuff to
	discourage further rust.  I didn't have a welder then, used
	gel and glass cloth to patch, has worked well..

	What you really want for under your carpet is stuff called
	or sound-deadening paneling.  Can be gotten from body shop
	or I think Whitney or Rocky Mountain Motor Works has it.  Would
	better sound dampening properties than ordinary felt, probably
	wear better, too.  Rust converter first, then use mastic to
stick it
	down with.  Works inside the doors, too.
