This simple how to guide will show you how to effectively rust proof and protect your car.
The most likely areas of your car to rust are in the doors, underneath the windows, the corners of your car, the eyebrows over the headlights, the wheel wells and the floor pans. Here are a few simple tips to rust proof your car:
- First of all it’s important you have the most important tool for rust proofing your car, the wand or the spray gun. It has 3 nozzles that are all different, one shoots out straight, whilst the other shoots out at angles and the last one is a plastic tube that will help you to get to the difficult to reach places.
- Another important product to have is a rust prevention spray that should be available to buy in many mechanical shops on the internet and in store.
- Make sure your vehicles windows are closed tightly and open all the doors and the hood of the car.
Treating the hood:
- You will need your spray gun and the nozzle that shoots at an angle. Insert the nozzle into the hoods corner drain hole and spray both left and right for five seconds each. After this select a centre opening and repeat, this should be continued around the hood panel to guarantee success for rust proofing your hood.
- The wing of your car will be treated with a different nozzle, this time with the plastic tube that will help you reach the difficult places. Locate the access point in the engine and began spraying with your gun again whilst slowly drawing out the nozzle as you spray.
Treating the door:
- Using the same nozzle that you used for the hood of your car, the one that lets you shoot at an angle, locate a drain hole in the bottom of your car door and insert the wand. As you’re spraying keep on rotating the spray gun and nozzle to make sure you reach the top of the door.
- Repeat this at the centre opening of your car and the opposite corner to where you began.
Treating the rear wing:
- Similar to the wing of your car, the rear wing will need the plastic tube nozzle. Insert the long wand whilst spraying constantly as you slowly remove the nozzle from the access point.
- Repeat this on the opposite access point of your rear wing.
Treating the boot, or hatch:
- Using the angled nozzle on the spray gun locate the opening access point on your boot, or hatch and spray for five seconds in each direction.
- Similar to the hood, make your way around the hatch in each access point until it is complete.
After you’ve completed this and successfully rust proofed your vehicle it is important to clean your equipment and safely put them away.
