Previously the car had been parked outside.

I have the option of parking it outside under a carport, and I think I'm going to start doing just that, in addition to having it oil sprayed. The climate is cold here. This is really helpful, thank you.
Carports are ideal in winter because they are still exposed to the cold which slows the rust process but yet saves you from having to brush off your car after a snow fall. Most rust damage from the winter comes in the spring once the warmer temps come and rust increases
I like to drive a slow car fast...

There is a lot of cool tips and DIY to help preserve your car on a Youtube channel called "Sweet project cars". I was checking one of their video lately explaining how to spray the underside of the car with a mix of water and sodium bicarbonate to help neutralize road salt after winter season. Have you guys tried or heard about that before? --JS

Heistp watch here you can buy both a spray gun and products for rost protection on ebay.
