Auto Restoration How to get rid of rust?
Once you have the vehicle striped down ready for inspection it’s imperative that any visible rust present is treated with a rust remover like DINITROL RC900 that converts the rust into safe organic iron complex to prevent further corrosion. Also many beginners starting a new auto restoration project fail to protect all the cavities and crevices around the vehicle due to being hidden from view. This can potentially be a very costly mistake with the classic car rusting from the inside and panel replacement especially with rare cars will see a significant rise in project expenditure. Due to this reason when working on a car restoration project we strongly recommend applying DINITROL ML into all cavity areas, box sections and crevices to prevent this problem occurring. The cavity wax can be applied your self with an undercoating gun, suitable air compressor and lance extension, with the product coating being highly penetrating it’s our recommended choice for older or classic car vehicles. Lastly don’t forget to steam clean the chassis and wheel arches you will need to apply a suitable rust remover before applying a comprehensive underseal like DINITROL 4941/Car to protect the underbody from water ingress and further corrosion occurring every couple of years. However, if you are looking to provide your auto restoration vehicle with a comprehensive rustproofing treatment our DINITROL Treatment Kit Bundles are excellent value and you can also purchase any additional add-ons including cans of DINITROL RC900 should they be required.
