Rust: Four-horrible-letters

By: Cj Marketing

Today we see cars in more than 7,000 hues, there are shades of rust that usually doesn't appear on color chips.

Serious rust damage can begin with a minor scratch in any parking lot from a shopping cart. However, steel is strong enough and lasts for a reasonable period when it's thoroughly protected, but when that guard is invaded, the metal is uncovered to the elements. That's where rust initiates its attack.

If you see any scratch over paint chips, blob a bit clear nail polish on the scratch. This is for quick fix until you can get some touchup supplies. Touchup paint is available on almost every autos resource and for virtually every vehicle ever built, including antiques. Use the paint code number shown on the identification plate located on a door jamb, in the glove box, under the hood, in the trunk under the carpet next to the spare or wherever else the car maker has hidden it. One of the best resource is also the owner's manual.

Some uncommon colors might create trouble. However, you can simply search them where auto parts are sold or from many resources from the internet. There are also scratch repair kits available in the markets (You really have to have a scratch kits; they have everything needed from preparation to finishing a deep scratch).

Small dents can be fixed with paint less dent repair; You can search them either on the internet, the classified section of the yellow pages or very commonly through local automotive suppliers.

This is proven to be a fact that from so many aspects of car care, preventive maintenance is much easier and always beneficial than corrective measures. Maintaining the innovative reliability of the finish keeps the vehicle in "nearly new" condition. However, the basic rules of paint maintenance and body apply:

Exporters Of Used Vehicles

If you are willing to purchase a used vehicle than be very careful of those exporters of used vehicles who have poor services all through out from purchase to collection.

Usually, vehicle looks in good condition when you watch their pictures on the internet (There are two possibilities, either it can be in good condition or also have rust underneath).

In case if there is no rust, but when the vehicle is shipped for 20-30 days in the air of sea it starts getting rusted. I have seen so many cases when people have reported several complaints regarding rust.

I recommend purchasing used vehicles from http://www.carjunction.com. The guys at Car Junction Ltd. are simply waiting to serve their customers and convey the quality they have.

Or, Internet is very vast. It is the possibilities you may find better than http://www.carjunction.com. But you better research and have a long discussion from the customers to be 100% sure you get the rust free vehicle. Do a Google search!

Always avoid parking in the hot sun; it can damage both the interior and exterior surfaces. Don't forget to wash your vehicle frequently (every week if possible), including areas underneath, with mild, safe products.

Choose the best waxes and cleaners and use them carefully. Remember a cleaner that is most effective for one type of finish could be a bad one for another. In the end consult the vehicle owner's manual to be sure.
