Re: Rust on bash plates


Paul,
You did not indicate if your bash plates were on or off your car.
I suggest you remove them if not already done so that both sides of your plates can be inspected and then follow Kev's advice.

Most of the time my plates are off the car unless I know that I will be going off road. Over the years I have also removed rust spots on several occasions and repainted using a metal paint/primer. They do become scratched etc in rough terrain and rust can appear. I always remove plates and clean and inspect after off road [sign in to see URL] after beach driving where sand cannot always be completely removed from underneath vehicle if they remain on the vehicle.

Cheers

Re: Re:


The easy way to stop surface rust on such things under the car is to brush onto the exposed area, the discarded oil from your last oilchange.
