Yep. The Original owner had the car ziebart coated on 11/5/84 and under the coating is brand new perfect metal. But none of these components were coated so they are rusted out. I have to say it was the smartest move he could have made.

I had my ‘86 Ziebarted when I bought it new, but can’t say it helped all that much. Of course, mine was a daily driver for 13 years in all kinds of weather, so maybe it was a good choice.

Yea, I’ve never known it to do much good either but the floors look great and every other component under there had significant rust. Luckily they are easily replaced. This car was driven quiet a bit in the Columbus area mainly summer tho until 99 when it was garaged for good
