I SERIOUSLY doubt that there is one square inch of sheet steel anywhere on a Viper thicker than 0.125", and that's probably going to be frame rail walls. My guess is it's 14 or 16 gauge (.075, .06") thick at most. So, there isn't much there to start with and it is crucial to stop that rust and protect the rest.

Dean, I had the tape measure out as I thought it was thicker than that as I initially thought it was a 1/4” thick. I based it on the street rod my father and I built
I was surprised to learn that my Gen IV’s frame was only 3/16” or 0.1875” thick.

I'm not sure why everyone is noting such different dimensions on this topic. You'd better check your measuring gear more closely. I recommend this for FACTUAL dimensions. Ha!

I have been crawling under my 05 and noticed rust around the exhaust pass-through on both sides. The heat from the pipes are probably burning off the paint and then its a free for all for the rust to grow.
