The Krown in Richmond Hill is at Yonge and Major Mack. Second light north of Major Mack on yonge, go east and it's on the north side after about 2 minutes driving.

Where do you guys think is better, RustCheck or Krown? Dripless or Non-Dripless?

I've always gone to Known for rust proofing. Not sure how good RustCheck is, I never checked it out.

Do a search and I'm sure you'll find a bit of info.

i've always and only used krown for my own cars as do my parents. don't have any personal experience with rust check but krown works beautifully. my parents '03 matrix was bought brand new and has been krowned every summer and there isn't a spot of rust on the body, only some surface rust and stuff where it is inevitable i.e. some bare under car nuts/bolts etc. but even then, its only surface rust.

krown is well worth the $109.95 a year.

as for dripless vs non dripless. from what i understand the stuff that drips, i.e. krown. does so because it is sprayed on and soaks into the metal and the excess drips off. the dripless stuff to me sounds like it would just be stickier and thicker but i'm not sure how or if it soaks into metal.

They told me they use oil for the doors and rocker panels, and dripless gel for the under carriage... so that it doesn't make a mess of your driveway... I like how they can do it without drilling.

If they don't drill then there would be no way for the oil/gel to get into some of the places it needs to be. I doubt Krown would be taking the time to drill and plug holes if they didn't need to.
