Best of luck! I sold mine after spending years welding replacement panels onto the chassis.

So what’s involved in the treatment? Is that foam looking layer the waxoyl? What if there is existing rust and does the age of the vehicle matter?

Yeah that's the waxoyl clear, it can be put on so you can hardly see it. But he wanted plenty on, which I recommend. Can also be got in black, or I can use dinitrol or tetraseal.

A complete pressure wash and then dried with heat and air before applying.

Personally I recommend waxoyl.

Any age of vehicle can be done. If there is existing rust it can be shot blasted off, however waxoyl stops it in its tracks. If any welding needs done we can do that.

Most vehicles require it before they get to that stage and of course it's the best time to do it. But anything is possible 😁

If rugged good looks and a devilish smile are points of failure on the CVRT then so be it. I can always take up boating. 😁
