I dont think so. All my dad did was spray Slick 50 on the rust spots and thats it.

I try to hit the cheapie drive through car wash once a week with my vehicles in the winter time. Its worth the $8 each week to not have to repair rust as soon.

i dont think it is.....i think its used because it is more effective on the roads than the salt
i dont believe it is corrosive either, many municipalities/states are switching to it because it can be applied before a storm, and it coats the road surface much more evenly, instead of having patchy spots everywhere, it also is more effective and efficient
Someone wanna pass this info along to the folks high up in Michigan...PLEASE
