No do not let them do it.

It's already galvanized unless you live near the coast you'll never need it.

If you want DIY use Hammerite Rust Cap and or POR 15 products.

I use Hammerite on the old cars I flip (I buy used POS as a hobby and sell them after fixing a bit).

Glassguard Protection
As the HAMMERITE Rust Cap coating dries, millions of heat-hardened glass flakes interlock with special resins, forming a super-tough barrier that seals out moisture to prevent rusting.

Paint Right Over the Rust
HAMMERITE Rust Cap paint is a long-lasting coating that can be applied directly over firm, rusty surfaces. With HAMMERITE’S unique paint-right-over-the-rust capability, you achieve a smooth, deep finish, rich in color

I would not have it done---no way it'll void the warranty. Drove my F-Bod for 16 years as a Daily Driver----ZERO rust!!!

Undercoating's pointless. My dad refused it on a countless number of cars and they all held up well to whatever ODOT throws on the ground during winter.

Some places it's good if you lot of road salt or places like Hawaii, Galveston etc.

But 600 bucks.. .hell no.

Buy the stuff I listed and DIY. Make sure you do NOT get that hammerite on your skin wear suit and eye protection. You can put it all over the place I have it under my battery trays and on suspension bars etc etc. Comes in colors too.

It's more a Euro thing still coming to Amerika.

No undercoating. If you are really worried about chips and stuff, you could always have Lizard Skin applied later.

Ok guys. I got it.

I called and had them cancel the undercoating. He didn't seem to care either way.

POR15 is great stuff.

GM has a 100k/6yr rust and corrosion warranty on Chevy products. Keep it clean and you wont have a problem.

Yeah man, don't bother with it. Besides, even if the car does oxidize; if you have your warranty, it's their problem, not yours. :P

Either way, enjoy the car man! You've had it loooong coming.

I'll tell you what, when I told him to scratch the undercoating he said something about kevlar coating on the paint or something like that. to shine it up real good. The only kevlar I ever knew was our flack-jackets and helmets in the Army. I said NO thank you, I'll wax the car myself.

POR 15 the problem with it is if you don't use the spray primer. It tends to chip after a couple years. So I have kinda blown it off because the Hammerite does not flake or chip.

I also say no to undercoating. Years ago (15-20), there was a big undercoating business in this area. (New England) The product names were Z-Bart (oil based material) and later "Rusty Jones" which was a paraffin based product. All the dealers provided it, and you could get it privately as well. I think it helped a bit, but there were other problems such as the undercoating getting into the door locks and so forth. They used to drill holes all over the place and squirt it inside of the panels, and then pop in little plugs.

Another problem was that it would block the passages and holes that are designed to drain water. For example, most car doors have small holes at the bottom so that any water that gets by the window can drain out. Block those holes and the water just sits in there.

Well, in the last 10 years or so, I don't think you can find anyone who does undercoating any more around here. Apparently it either does not work, or the cars don't need it. If you drive your car in the winter around here, it's gonna rust, no matter what.

irpq11...seems like your dealer is working all the angles (to get in your pocket)...now you need to worry about the Document Fee he is going hit you with...there is a good thread here with #'s from zero $ to $299. Be informed, be aware and be ready. Good Luck.
