Rust Repair Process
This rust damage has been caused by water getting behind the wheel arch seal and over a period of time festered then blown through the paint layer resulting in flaking paint and bare metalwork. Rust can be a tricky repair especially if the rust has not been treated and has been left to fester. The customer sent us some photos of the rust damage and was given a free estimate within 24 hours of first contact, from which a day and time to carry out the repair was agreed.
As you can see the rust damage on the rear off side wheel arch is quite bad and required extensive rust treatment for when the paint was removed the rust has stretched out over a larger area than what the photos suggested.
After the rust treatment was applied and the preparation and paintwork completed there was no sign of where that damage had been both the rust and the flaking paint. Each repair that Car Body Repairs carry out comes with a year’s guarantee given you that extra piece of mind that the damage won’t return.
This customer lived in Epping but if you live within the areas that we cover in Hertfordshire, Essex or North London and you have a similar repair you need carried out then drop us a line or you can email us some photos for an estimate.
