Should the undercarriage look rusty already?

Just curious, but if you look under my Mustang, it already looks rusty. I know I've asked about the headers already, but as this is my first new car, I guess I just expected it would still look pristine.

Re: Should the undercarriage look rusty already?

Thanks, Spector...I guess I am just OCD enough to care but probably not enough to do what it would take to prevent that

Re: Should the undercarriage look rusty already?

throw on a set of chrome headers on instead of the manifold and then coat the bottom of the car with a rubberized substance i can't remember right now to cover the rusty look, places where they use a lot of salt the stuff is popular to protect the undercarriage

You know with all this talk about rust, I'm afraid to look under the hood and the Pony...LOL But I understand it's natural.

Yeah that would suck some. but if it had to be done then I guess I would have to do it.

Re: Should the undercarriage look rusty already?

haha your not going to have to do it it is almost always just light surface rusts that dusts away without a doubt, it has been a long time since I have heard someone rust out their frame or through their floor boards

Park it in a garage. If it needs moved, trailer it. This is after you scrub all the existing rust off and seal the undercarriage with rust-inhibiting primer or something.

Eh, it's a daily driver; so, it would have to be something that can just beat the elements.
