Deciding whether car underbody rust protection is a necessary process or not is a much debated subject amongst car enthusiasts. The consensus appears to be that it depends on the make of car, types of road and climate frequently driven and age (of car). Amongst old or classic car owners, most will agree, without debate, that underbody rust protection is a necessary process to avoid high costs of treating rust and replacing car parts.
Whether you are the proud owner of a classic car or have a desire to take the best possible care of your modern day car, offering it rust protection particularly to the under-body and wheel arches will preserve it and reduce the need for costly repairs caused by rust.
