metal question??

im watching all the new auto shows, what are these guys putting on the metal to keep it from getting surface rust? i know there having these cars media blasted or chemically stripped, but when they are mocking the cars up there in bare metal for months, unprimed, etched or anything, .. any ideas?? thank you all.

Most of the stripping processes leave a residue that will ward off corrosion a bit untill it is cleaned off. Metal conditioners also work. A friend of mine runs a mediablaasting business and he says his process leaves the factory phosphate treatment intact on cars that had this done at the factory, the metal doesn't rust for months if kept dry.
