Hi Dave. I did. I bought a gallon of undercoating from Dutch Boy in the
late 80's. Of course, I didn't know what I was doing. I just sanded the
inside rust away and painted the stuff on the floor of the cockpit and
coated the trunk with it. Well, I obviously used the wrong stuff because in
the heat it still is tacky. A friend of mine coated his with some stuff
which looks like a "step" strip on an airplane wing. His actually dried.
There's been no more rust though on my car. I just have to be carefull when
putting things in the trunk. The carpets are stuck to the floorboards
pretty well now too.
Be careful what substance you use. Make sure it actually cures hard.
