I don't know why more people don't oil spray... Posted by Snowmobile [Email] (#686) [Profile/Gallery] (more from Snowmobile) on Tue, 15 Jan 2013 12:29:57

I get all 3 of ours done annually... I've heard of people doing used motor oil - not a bad solution economically + I suppose a reasonable reuse vs disposal... do you spray it yourself? with what sort of spray equipment?
What I use is Rust Check, which is oil based, but quite thin, and I get it sprayed in every cavity of the car (inside doors, sills, fenders, etc) and it creeps everywhere... good stuff... other brands are similar (eg krown)... they also make a thicker product to undercoat the bottom of the car... both come in a can available everywhere up here... I use those for touch ups (eg if I'm doing a repair that yields access to something that needs a spray)...
the biggest issues I noticed with rust on 9-5's are the little corner of the rear fenders behind the rear doors - there's a square there that rusts if dirt clogs what I think is a drain (sunroof drain?)... so I poke any dirt out of there annually and spray rust check in there... the other area I've seen go a little bit on older 9-5's is the door sills and lower door edges... this stuff happens on all cars though and saabs are much better than most... our 1989 winter beater looks a little rough in spots (mainly spots that didn't get adequate rust proofing applied over the years), but it is still rock solid. Exhausts however, it has gone through many (and I am about to order yet another!)...
