The RAV will be delivered next week. Was told sealent will cost me $600.00 and I about choked (remember last new car I bought was almost 10 years ago) :shock: . Was thinking I could do it myself and save a lot of cash. The car will be garage kept but will be outside * hours a day while I'm at work near the harbor (I work in Pearl Harbor). I have an orbital buffer as well. Any suggestions & cost? They want another $349 to rustproof! From what I've read, the cars these days are pretty well taken care of at the factory when it comes to rust protection. Any suggestions?
Thanks! :D

Most of this has been covered in thread titled: "keeping paint new-lookin'"

Rustproofing is a scam. When was the last time you saw a car rust? Besides isn't rust covered for 5 years already?

There is like a 60 or 70% mark up on the paint sealents from the dealer. Offer them $350 and tell them take it or leave it.

Buy your own sealant for $15 to $20 and do it yourself. Once every 3 months should be enough. Save your cash and do it yourself.
