comment how to protect metal from scrape through the paint?
Rusteoleum also has a "reacts with rust to make it inert" primer forumla that I've had good luck with.

comment Difference between FWD/RWD/4WD/Part-Time 4WD/AWD?
@Rory, @dilbert kind of oversimplified it. SH-AWD will "overdrive" the rear-end by 2% (one model) or 0-6% faster than the front wheels. It can also transfer up to 100% of the rear-end power to the outside wheel. Wikipedia has a detailed article about it.

comment Maintenance on used car with unknown history
Consider doing the fuel system cleaner before doing the oil, as ring blow-by can lead to this cleaner getting into the oil. Probably not a big deal, but it's something I try to follow. I'd also consider adding water pump lubricant when re-filling the radiator.
