rust proofed parts
hello im currently restoring a few classic cars and i was wondering if there was a service out there that could supply new and used parts that have been rust proofed or have a place i can send my current parts to be rust proof treated as obviously some of the parts are no longer available to buy new
What type of "parts" are you refering to?
- Suspension arms etc can be plated or powder coated, as can many engine compartment fittings.
- body panels need to be undercoated and painted, though those under can also be undersealed with Waxoyl or similar.
- fasteners (nut, bolt & screws) can often be replaced with stainless steel, as can some brackets and clips.
- exhausts and brake parts need specialist hi-temp coatings.
It would help if you said what cars you are restoring and whether you are aiming for orginality or day-to-day use.
Whereabouts are you located? I know Krown ( http://www.krown.com/ ) offers rust proofing for entire vehicles, but you could ask them if they will do it for specific parts. There are products out there that you can buy yourself - you'd need a special rustproofing gun for some
