Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/16/2021

If there’s one thing that no car owner wants to see on their ride, it’s rust. Unfortunately, after a while, rust is bound to squeeze its way into just about every car in some fashion. Even the rarer machines that are made with aluminum frames and fiberglass bodies might suffer a little bit of rust under the hood from time to time.

This time, though, we take a moment to focus on body restoration when it comes to a little bit of rust. After seeing a lot of things in the automotive community, I can definitely attest that this is the video that everybody attempting to do rust repair should watch. At the end of the day, there are definitely a lot of bad ways to repair rust. Trust me when I tell you that I have seen plenty of incredibly bad attempts at fixing up rust spots.

When it really comes down to it, those cheap repairs just aren’t going to do the job. Sure, they might have you looking good for a little bit. The repair might even last for an entire year. However, improperly fixing rust is a good way to ensure that you’re going to be fixing it again if you keep the car.

Luckily, YouTube has basically all of the information that we could ever want or need including rust repair. This time, we dial ourselves in with everybody’s favorite virtual mechanic, ChrisFix, as he gives us the rundown on how exactly these repairs need to take place. Perhaps the best part is that it doesn’t take an overly experienced mechanic to make these repairs. With a couple of tools, the right materials, and a little bit of patience, we think most people should be able to take this job on in their very own garage.
