- Knowing exactly which system to go for is something only the restorer can decide. Consider the following questions.
- Is this going to be a rolling restoration or maintenance project? Will it be off the road for some time or do I need it as my daily driver or weekend leisure vehicle?
- How well can you do the job with the facilities you have available to you?
- Do you want to strip down to a bare nut and bolt restoration, or will you be happy to maintain the vehicle in a good usable condition?
The answers to these questions will determine which way you will want to go in your choice of rust proofing.
Rust Removal, is the vehicle being fully stripped and dipped or blasted or as this is a rolling restoration how do you intend to prepare the surface prior to finishing? Rustbuster provides a range of surface preparation products to assist in the process, whether it’s an MBX Blaster Tool a cup brush or a good old-fashioned wire brush. Once you have removed all the loose rust on the surface you’ll then need to decide how you are going to remove the final layer of rust directly on the surface of the metal, Rust Converters like FE123 or Rust Removers like Phos-Kleen A will assist in doing this, Rustbuster can advise on what’s best for each application just give us a call to ask.
Different levels of surface preparation allow for the of use higher longevity systems such as Rustbuster Epoxy Anode, this highly zinc rich primer will become sacrificial when applied directly to bright clean steel, when coated with Rustbuster EM121 Epoxy Mastic Anti Corrosion Paint this will provide a system for many years.
