My car has some bits of rust under the bonnet, wheel arches and under the car.. its just surface rust and has been parked near the sea so im guessing thats why it has rusted. Any advice?
Theres abit under the bonnet and at the bottom inside the wheel arches at the back. Also abit on the toe ring at the front of the carWheel arches are the most concerning usually - depending on exactly how much and where on the other sections.
If you do it go for quality and a well recommended body shop.
Recommendations are key on that for me.
I took it to the mazda garage today as i had to pick up some paint, they said it wasnt anything serious just abit of surface rust, advised me to use a stiff brush and then wd40 which is what i thought they would say.Sounds not as bad as I first thought. What do you mean by toe ring, you mean the tie down hook I think - nothing to worry about.
The bit under the bonnet and the wheel arch on a younger car like yours can probably be held at bay with a little cheap attention for some time.
I know what I would do (I used to run a couple of old fiat panda 4x4's so rust is something i have faced)but others on here know more about the right way to do paint and rust so maybe they can advise.
