2005 Saab 93 here.

This car has been driven daily for as long as I've had it, and every state I've lived in with this car has used salt to ice the roads in winter. I give it an underbelly wash every time I wash the car.

Despite this, there seems to be significant rust building up underneath the car. The screws used to hold things like the engine cover and air filter are also rusting out.

Is there a recommended way to mitigate this and then prevent it from happening further? I can replace the screws but I don't know what to do about the bottom of the car. I've heard of rust converter, but I am skeptical about whether or not it's really effective.

This is what I would do about the under body, I would give the rusty area's a good clean up with a wire brush and then give it a good coating of under seal ( paint it on with a brush ), I've done it myself in the good old days ( rusty Fords etc ).;ol;
