Toyota Rust Proofing… Because You Live at the Beach!
The Sunshine Coast beach lifestyle is second to none, but while the sunshine and salty breezes are great for us, they can also cause vehicles to rust – that’s why Toyota Rust Proofing is essential.
When it comes to rust, it is far better (and cheaper) to be proactive. Preventing a build-up of rust on your vehicle will help you avoid costly maintenance and protect your vehicle’s resale value.
Causes of rust in vehicles
Rust most often occurs on the parts of the car that are washed less frequently, like the underside of the vehicle. Chipped or damaged paint can also let salt and moisture in, causing metal corrosion.
Chemicals, moisture and dirt can all lead to rust formation. However, salt exposure -from road salt or salt spray from the ocean - can accelerate the rate of metal corrosion significantly.
Added to this, high levels of sunshine can expand the pores in vehicle paint, making the surface more susceptible to rust formation.
