Rust control with Krown

Car maintenance is important but equally is the cleanliness of your vehicle. Interior clean up should a routine duty. And a quick check of your HVAC cabin filter is especially important if you suffer from any sort of allergy or have respiratory illness. And must we not forget the exterior – A good coating of wax will defend against moisture, salt and other contaminants which typically lead to rust. And I guess that’s where Krown also comes into play. They offer complete oil spray treatments for vehicles and additionally our favorite, the Krown aerosol rust protection.

This treatment can be applied a number of ways. You can simply spray it directly over any rust that you may see on your vehicle or you can get into an extreme detailing mode. Photos below exhibit this procedure on a vehicle we had in the shop.

Our targeted areas involved de-greasing of the front suspension, wheel arches and cargo trunk area. Once these areas were fully dried out we used a simple applicator to apply the Krown Rust protection spray. A timely procedure but we think a very important one.

We cant recommend this Krown product enough, cheapest anti-corrosion insurance on the market. period! You can purchase direct from Krown E-Store HERE or if your looking for a detail package give us a call directly or drop by the shop.

That 70โ€™s Camaro

The coolest neighbour award goes to Donny from Peninsula Garage Doors in Niagara Falls.

He’s brought this 2nd Gen Camaro back from the dead in a furious way. Nothing left unturned. Absolutely every nut, bolt, panel was either upgraded, replaced or refurbished.

And finally it’s our turn to step in ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽจfront and rear glass both need installation.

Stay tuned for an update on this machine.

Mustang Autobody prep & paint continues…

So in order to do this job the right way the complete roof had to be taken down to bare metal

We opted to use a chemical stripper but before that we power sanded a good portion of the old clear coat off. Taking this step allowed us to use far less chemical remover as well kept the work area controllable.

Chemical removers are very powerful and highly recommend use of heavy duty rubber gloves and respirator.

With the glass finally removed we could carefully prep the mating surface area and start sealing up the roof.

We’ll be back soon with some color and the glass back in. Stayed up to date by following our blogs, YouTube channel and on social media.

Do we wrap or paint?

Regardless which route we go with this process requires the front and rear window removal.

Tricky process to remove original glass. The old urethane has been bonding for years and precise tools are definitely required for the job.
