The trick for salt I do is detail and seal the car repeatedly before winter. Then I don't wash it all winter unless I can't see or ice is impeding movement. Then clean the hell out of it every spring. Every spring I have a small section of my front passenger fender near the rear that always peels paint, only there and I repaint it annually. Had it professionally done too to no avail. Oh well, minor inconvenience.

Keep fixing issues when you find them, and don't skip maintenance, and you guys will get here eventually.
