Stop rust permanently! Magnet Paint now offers Chassis Saver. This low-odor, high-build, single-component chassis paint and underbody coating provides excellent rust and corrosion protection. It begins by chemically bonding to clean or rusty steel to form a rock-hard, yet flexible, non-porous, glaze-like finish that won't crack, chip, or peel. Chassis Saver works by isolating metal from moisture. Without moisture present, steel can't rust or corrode. It's actually strengthened by exposure to moisture and is not affected by salt, gasoline, diesel fuel, oils, battery acids, hydraulic fluids, solvents, chemicals, or corrosives. Chassis Saver can be applied with a brush, sprayed on, or rolled. For more information, contact: Magnet Paint & Shellac Co. Inc., Dept. 4WDSU, 336 Bayview Ave., Amityville, NY 11701, (800) 922-9981, www.magnetpaints.com.
