Q. Doesn’t my car/truck already have rust protection from the manufacturer?
A. Only a few manufacturers add some sealers to select interior panels. Q. What is undercoating?
A. Undercoating is a thick black abrasion and impact resistant sealant. This is applied to the visible underside of the vehicle. Including brake lines and fuel lines!
Q. What other parts of my vehicle are treated during a Rust Protection?
A. On our full rust protection package we use special sealants that are fogged inside all of the upper body cavities of your vehicle. This includes the hood, fenders, wheel wells, tail gate/trunk lid, rockers, quarter panels and dog legs. Bottom side areas include inside frame, enclosed box and frame sections. Rust Protection package includes undercoating.
Q. I have and older vehicle. Can I still get this done? A. Absolutely! Depending on the overall condition of a vehicle, almost any car or truck can benefit from rust protection. On an older vehicle, we start with removing heavy scale and flaking rust. After that is completed we steam clean the underbody. Once it is dry all left over surface rust is double coated with a rust converter. After this prep process we can apply our sealants.
Q. What kind of warranty is offered?
A. New and nearly new vehicles are covered by a 10 warranty. This covers things not covered by your factory warranty. The manufacturers warranty does not cover rust caused by environment like road salt the number one cause of rust in this area. Please call 973-831-9595 for further details.
Q. Does this require any maintenance?
A. Yes. Once a year you need to schedule a “Rust Inspection”. During this inspection we touch up any area that may need it, to ensure that all areas are still properly covered with the sealants.
Q. Is there anything else I can do to help protect my vehicle from the environment?
A. One accessory we highly recommend is mud flaps. These prevent road salt and other debris from being kicked up onto the sides of your car/truck. We also offer paint protection Filmand “Diamond Gloss®
