To Rustprotect your vehicle, the inside of the doors, fenders, quarter panels, trunk area, under the hood and sub-frame channels are coated. Then we coat everything on the underside minus the exhaust, springs, axle, suspension and any moving parts.
Applying Rust Protection to your vehicle includes spraying inside the doors, fenders, quarter panels, trunk area, tailgate, wheel wells, under the hood and sub-frame channels are coated. Then we coat everything with Undercoat also known as Sound Gard, on the underside minus the exhaust, springs, axle, suspension and any moving parts.
Rustprotecting material is a light amber colored material that inhibits rust. Undercoat, a black petroleum based material, is used to coat and seal the underside of the vehicle.
We will apply about 2 gallons of material using a direct spray method. The material is applied about 10-12mls thick to ensure complete coverage. Other applicators may use a fog spray which will provide minimal coverage as a light mist using only 1-2 quarts vs. gallons.
*The vehicle will have a warranty against perforation from the protected side out.*
10 year warranties do not require the inspections, however, the customer can request to have their vehicle inspected in order to refresh & touch up the Rust Protection.
Inspections are for reapplication of the Rust Protection materials. When we complete inspections, the underside of the vehicle is steam cleaned to remove dirt and debris. Any undercoat that is chipped will be touched up. The Rustprotection material in the panels & sills will be refreshed. There are processing fees for pre-cleaning the vehicle prior to the actual inspection. Pre-cleaning is necessary to ensure a proper inspection and reapplication.
