when rust attacks

Recommended Posts

when you have rust on chassis or body usually the body shops just clean and put putin and face it and paint it only to make the paint pop back up and the rust sprouts back

and the other way is to chop up the area affected and put a new sheet or chassis piece and hammer it back in place then face it and paint it

common with some models of prado as its a/c drain drops water on right chassis and makes hole in it and the mitsubishis where the body almost always gets rusty

have seen a fancy way to deal with it hope someone else doesn't do this....1.jpg.65804ff852b18bbd22079cdff49df0c8.jpg

As someone from a country where they use salt on the roads, I’ve seen my fair share of rusted out chassis’s. That’s the first time I saw one held together with jubilee clips though. 

The only answer is to cut the bad bits out, treat it with tannic acid, box it up and fill it with wax.
