Hey Guys,

Those of us Canucks that rustproof know the benefit Krown Rust control can offer. Now you can buy the same great stuff as they ship to the U.S.

It's a great product that sprays on, creeps and then dries with an invisible self-healing barrier. It's non-toxic, no mask or gloves are needed and it will not stain your asphalt. (Washes off Asphalt after some time).

I have been using it since their inception in the 1980's and all my vehicles go to the scrap yard with 0 rust even after 20 years and 1/2 a million kilometers.

It's great to spray in your doors, door locks, shock towers, under carriage, electrical wires/connectors and everywhere else corrosion and rust is a problem. It has no solvents and will not cause rubber/seals to swell.

https://shopusa.krown.com

Here is the Dodge Caravan that went to the scrap yard after 22 years of living in the Rust Belt.




My 2006 Santa Fe that went to the scrap yard with no rust after 535,000km (300K miles)

Ha! In college a friend had that same hand me down van from his parents, exact color and all but it was a Voyager. This was the late 90's but it was still going strong and wasn't too rusty other than around the rear window. The old POS ran well especially considering how poorly it was treated.

I used to call mine the Shaggin' wagon, it had the awful beige interior. It was fun to go to the Drive-in with and open the trunk and sit in there on some bean bag chairs.

This one was the dreaded 2.6L Mitsubishi engine that was known for cracking heads and burning copious amounts of oil. We overhauled the engine at 150,000km and change the head twice after that (Cracked). We got 460,000km out of it though... LOL

He called it the hooptie van, also had the 2.6 but seemed to run well, just slow.

At 140km/hr (86 MPH) it wouldn't go any faster... Literally pedal to the floor and it would be topped out.

Also took about 20 minutes to get to 60. No speeding in that thing. (J/K) LOL

I remember driving it a few times and thought it was a nice driving car...if you weren't in a hurry! The driving position, steering/handling, visibility were all really good.

It was comfortable and it did handle pretty well. I just wish we had the V6 instead. But those also burned oil (Mitsu) and used to drop Valve Seats.

Can you buy Krown in gallon cans to apply with a spray gun?

Thanks for this info :-)

E-mail them, I can buy it here in Canada! smile

If not let me know and I will talk to the shop I'm friends with here that does my vehicles. I have known the guy for years and we could arrange to get it from here to you. (Cheaper in Canadian Dollars anyway. LOL)

I so need to get that here..will end up on what I drive next


Makes me sad I will have to send our cavalier to the scrapyard....not because of the engine, but rust will finish it off....

I'd almost spray it just to keep it from getting worse....not sure how much it will help though...

CarWell is identical to Krown and has been available in the US for many years.
