How Do You Apply Rust Proofing on Your Car

When it comes to protecting your vehicle from costly damages, rust-proofing treatment is one of the best things you can do to ensure it’s made to last. At Bodyshield, we know applying rust proofing not only enhances your car’s longevity but also helps preserve its overall value.

So, how do you go about giving your car the rust-proofing shield it deserves? In this blog, we’ll explain the process of applying it on your vehicle.

Preparation is Key

Before starting the rust-proofing process, ensure your car is clean and dry. Thoroughly wash off any dirt, grime, or salt residue from the exterior and undercarriage.

Once dry, inspect the vehicle for any existing rust spots, as these should be treated before applying rust-proofing treatment.

Undercarriage Coating

The undercarriage is the most vulnerable area to rust, as it comes into direct contact with road salts and moisture.

Begin by applying the rust-proofing treatment to the undercarriage, focusing on the frame, suspension components, and wheel wells.

Ensure thorough coverage to create a robust shield against rust.

Seam Sealing and Rust Spot Treatment

Next, identify any seams or crevices in your car’s body, as these are common areas for rust to form at a rapid pace.

Additionally, if you discover any existing rust spots, treat them with a rust converter or neutralizer before applying rust proofing on any vehicle.

Regular Maintenance:

Rustproofing is not a one-time job. If you love your car and want to keep it for the long run, it’s worth the investment. Better yet, you should consider applying a fresh coat of rustproofing annually or as recommended by your local garage.

By following these steps, you can protect your vehicle for many years to come. If you’d like to explore Bodyshield products or you’re a local garage in need of a rust-proofing supplier, please contact us on our website so we can assist you.
