    My Cobalt started to rust because the paint chipped off so would bed liner instead of paint not chip off again?

    The rust will be removed off course.

    There's a number of different bed liner types.
    Plastic bed liners that would sit in the bed of the truck and being plastic they generally won't chip too much or rust at all.

    Then there's bed liner paint that can be applied either by professionals or as a DIY project. Being an applied product this could potentially chip though I believe its more durable then regular paint.

    Are you talking about spraying bed liner onto the bottom of your car to prevent rust? From those pictures it looks like you just have a crappy paint job. Paint doesn't usually chip and flake off a car like that unless under heavy abuse.

    From what a autobody shop told me that seal inside the car holds water and salt in the winter and rusts out the paint which is apparent on the inside door, then the paint on the outside chipped off because of that?

    Thank you I didn't install them actually the previous owner did. I find them dumb , but have no ambition to remove them.

    ^Really? no ambition? I would say for every new topic you start you should remove one decal. It'll be a fun game and the decals will be gone in days. :D

    I agree the stickers have to go they looks ridicules and when the sun fades the paint and the sticker come off I don't want to see the faded marks.

    I was more referring to how burned and swirled the paint is for such a new ride...

    But yeah, pretty much tarred the bottom of the doors? Taking care of the car properly with regular washing and occasional waxing would've prevented needing to do that.

    That aside, there IS such a thing as rust proofing from places such as ziebart that put anti corrosion spray within the panels of the car.

    Really? If I bought a car like that I would remove them as soon as I could, I'd be embarrassed to drive around in a car with those.
