When the time comes to undercoat your vehicle, you have a few options for the process. In doing the job yourself, you can use spray cans or an air compressor system, and you will just need a few hours to make either option work. We used Eastwood Rubberized Undercoating to protect the floorboards as you see here. The Eastwood brand has been around for years and has become a leader with the D.I.Y car enthusiasts. Their product line is usually designed for the novice builder, making it that much easier to use for the more experienced builder.

Eastwood’s Rubberized Undercoating produces a very tough, yet flexible, film that stays put and helps prevent road salt from eating away at your car’s metal and fiberglass. The material offers excellent adhesion to metal or painted surfaces, and will also help sound deadening against road noise when cruising on the highway. Eastwood’s coating also helps give the car a clean look when the car is parked. The process can take a few minutes to apply but will last a lifetime on your car when done properly. The hardest part of spraying the coating will be the preparation involved. For example, it might take 1 hour to mask up, and about 15 minutes to actually do the job.

Whether you use a spray can or spray-on style of protection, a touch of undercoating treatment will help prevent the floors from rusting. Now let us show you how the pros at House of Pain protect the floorboards and seal the deal on “Project FearleSS” using Eastwood’s undercoating protection.
