Keep Your Classic from Rusting
February 11, 2016
If you’re a classic car fan, nothing beats the pride of owning one. Whether you enjoy driving around with the motor revved in summer months or keeping your beauty shiny and polished in your garage, caring for it can be fun and give you many rewarding memories. Rust is a menace to an antique car owner. It can mar the appearance as well as damage essential engine parts. If you’re concerned about rust, here is some advice to keep your classic glistening and corrosion-free.
A thorough waxing every four months protects your car against oxidation. The extra layer also provides that freshly polished beautiful sheen under the lights.
Pay Attention to Storage
If you store your car long-term, be certain to keep it somewhere that doesn’t promote the spread rust. A storage facility with puddles or drips puts the vehicle in danger of moisture, which eventually causes rust. Generally, classic cars should be kept in a dry location free of any airborne waste material.
Clean Up Spills Promptly
We understand how much fun it is to take your classic for an occasional wild spin. Just be aware of interior spilling if you make a sudden turn. Clean up any liquids you spill as quickly as possible. The longer the interior is subjected to moisture, the greater the risk of rusting.
