Let’s talk about rust baby...

Oppo, there is a significant amount of rust on the frame of my 2000 Tundra. Not enough to warrant an exchange by Toyota, but more than enough to make me worried.

One year, I went over the frame with a wire wheel attached to a drill, chisel, brush - everything I had to scrape of as much as I could. Then, I sprayed fluid film over it. But, this is something you need to yearly and I’m, frankly, too lazy. I’ve researched por30 and it seems like a valid option, but removing the rust, spraying with prep stuff, rinsing, spraying with Por30 seems like a lot of work and I haven’t been able to force myself to do it


Any ideas on my options where I could pay someone? Line X bed liner people offer Valugard Rust inhibitor service, but I have no clue if this is something that would work on an already rusty frame.

I think this truck could last me til I die, except for the frame.

What does the hive mind think?
