Rust on an automobile is a sign of neglect, and a cathodic protections system is not the answer.

I was in the U.S. Navy for over 20 years, and every ship I served on had a cathodic protection system to prevent galvanic corrosion.

To protect an automobile you need to be VERY agressive and proactive with washing and waxing. For areas that are already showing rust you need to remove the rusted metal, repair the area, and then properly paint it.

Once the damage is repaired and repainted you MUST keep the vehicle clean. Dirt holds moisture, and moisture holds O2 which is the main constituant in rust.
