Anticorrosion Module!

Has anybody had the chance to use and qualify these as worth while? I got a FINAL COAT Corrosion Module 2000 for free and It being an easy installation. The ocean going small boat owners that have similar devices that I've asked swear by them.

Ya I read up a bit more, sounds like the negatives far outweigh the Positives in customer reviews. Could be strategically placed positive replies to save the product reputation!

If it is an easy install, I would say go for it just to try it. The only experience that I have with electronic rust control is a buddy who had a mid-late eighties ford minivan with it installed from factory or dealer. By the mid-nineties that thing had more rust than it did metal.

^ If I rub that on the prone area's of the underbody would that work? Regular intervals of course when road thaw happens.

This principle of corrosion prevention is called cathodic protection. You can google it and find plenty articles to read.

Cathodic protection works when the metal is immersed in water or soil (which contains water). Car chassis is dry. This device does not work. If you want to protect underbody, spray high zinc paint. It does work.

Ya that was one of conclusions I read alot about. Maybe I'll sell it for the going price without a sales pitch. I'll just keep doing the more labor intensive underbody once over. which is all surface rust removed miracle paint,undercoat where necessary and I'll react before the fact!!

That's the way it works. Unless your going to immerse your car in water, it won't do anything.
