Car Restoration is a very rewarding hobby or professional occupation especially, when you drive the vehicle for the first time and benefit from all the hard work. If you are looking to restore a car we recommend contacting an authorised DINITROL® supplier who provide rust proofing kits usually containing a rust convertor, underbody chassis coating and cavity wax. Once you have removed any corrosion and rust from the vehicle with a wire brush we strongly recommend you use an inspection lamp to check for any excessive corrosion surface damage that may require welding by a professional body repair specialist. You can then recheck the car for any corroded areas and apply DINITROL® RC900. A specialist rust convertor & primer that turns rust on your car substrates into a stable organic iron complex. Once you are happy with the vehicle chassis and cavity areas you will need to mask the vehicle with a suitable automotive masking tape and paper. Also with the internet it’s now very easy to source vehicle parts for classic cars with many suppliers. After you have applied the rust treatment products including DINITROL® cavity waxes and underbody chassis coatings to the car. You should always use an appropriate engine cleaner and engine flush and radiator flush before driving the vehicle.
