Gooey frame

Recommended Posts

Surprised there is nobody complaining about the gooey frame coating.  I installed torquelift camper tiedown brackets and ran some wiring and it is pretty messy.  Have to wipe it off the tools and scrub off my hands and arms.  Maybe mine is extra gooey?  Hopefully this coating does a good job preventing rust.  I picked up a can of the repair spray and hit some of the areas where it was scraped off when they assembled the truck.

Here we go again!  The stuff is called NoxRust, GM has been using it since 1987, it's probably better than paint if you touch it up occasionally, and yes it can be messy.  There have been rumors that GM is going to go to an E-coat paint process on their full size truck chassis, but it has not happened yet.  Maybe 2022?

Never heard of this but I looked it up and seems interesting. Just curious, do they just go wild spraying everything under the truck or do they mask off things that aren't supposed to be coated?
