Dealing with rust or corrosion of any kind is not fun. It doesn’t look like much, but it can quickly become a problem. Rust is unsightly and can cause sharp corners as it chips away at the metal. Plus, if ignored for long enough, it may eventually compromise the structural integrity of the vehicle.
So, what exactly is rust? What causes it? This type of corrosion is the result of a chemical reaction between iron, oxygen, and moisture. Rust is not as much of a problem in today’s vehicles because of their materials. If iron is still present anywhere on the vehicle, it is now better protected via rust-resistant paint and other coatings. Even so, it is best to be aware of the potential and prevent the possibility of corrosion before it even begins. Here are a few things you can do to minimize the risk of rust on your vehicle.
It’s important to note that rust does NOT have to be permanent. It’s not possible to reverse the corrosion and fully restore the material, but you can stop the process by removing the problem area. This requires sanding, filling, and polishing the material to make it look as good as new. The best thing you can do is prevent corrosion before it begins.
