How to prevent rust

Leaks to the body of a vehicle such as around a windshield or door seal should be corrected as soon as possible and carpets thoroughly dried out. A close watch should be kept on window – sealing rubbers, and drain holes in doors kept clear. Wash the vehicle regularly with fresh water and dry thoroughly.

Never park a wet car in a warm garage with all the doors and windows shut. This creates a sweat box with ideal conditions for hastening corrosion.

Check the underside of the vehicle periodically and wash off any mud poultices that may have formed on protruding bolts etc.
