No road salt? not a problem. Those of us with salted roads have more to worry about.

If only there were some sort of protective coating that could be applied to the surface of a panel to protect it. Perhaps it could be some sort of liquid that could be sprayed on and then dry into a solid. They could even add some sort of pigment to allow a customer to select a hue for the panel to appear!
