Rustbuster’s Complete Rust Proofing Services

For many years Rustbuster have applied rustproofing waxes, epoxies, and coatings to all types of vehicles more recently offering in-house rustproofing to Car’s classic and new, trucks, motorhomes, and small commercial vehicles.

When the Covid-19 pandemic started, and the UK went into lockdown we had to shut the rustproofing bays we had in-house. Some would argue that vehicle maintenance was still allowed but as an MOT wasn’t deemed necessary, we didn’t believe rustproofing was either, this obviously had a great impact on our business.

Car Underseal Applied by Rustbuster Approved Centres

During this period, we thought it would be a good idea to plan for the future and decided that we would look to open rustproofing centres where possible across the UK. Full in-house training was provided by Rustbuster’s own Ian Allen, this training compromised of learning about rust, learning why we rustproof and where to rustproof along with completing a vehicle together. An advert went out and we were first approached by Prestige Auto’s, Walsall, West Midlands and secondly AJ Rust Protection Services, Telford, Shropshire.

Along with these 2 centres offering Full Hot Fog Rustproofing and Half Day Services Rustbuster in Spalding have again started to offer services though at present limited to Half Day Services only.

This system has been designed for all types of vehicle and takes approximately 1.5days from start to completion. In this service all plastic wheel arch liners and undertrays are removed to fully expose the surfaces to be coated before removal of all loose rust, failing coatings, old loose wax etc.
