We keep fooling ourselves, donít we? We tell ourselves (and others) that weíre going to paint or fix that scratch, dent, or rusty spot next month, next fall, next year etc. While we fool ourselves the problem just gets bigger and bigger. When you are considering getting that dent or rust spot fixed ask yourself three questions.

  1. Can I really afford to do the bodywork now?
  2. Is the damaged area prone to rust?
  3. Will the damage get worse if I donít do something now?

If you intend to do the repair and can afford it, then do it now.

If you canít afford the repair and further rust is inevitable, you can do something!  You may simply have to brush on a small amount of paint to cover small scratches or chips.   Small scratechs are often able to be buffed, inexpensively preventing futher damage.  However, with deep scratches or bare metal, you may face a bigger problem with rust further damaging your car. Relax, and Krown it!

A Krown rust control application is cheap, just $129.95 for cars. Spraying your car with Krown will hold any rust from spreading badly, in fact you may put off major body work forever if you wish. You can also buy Krown in $10 spray cans and spot treat heavy rust blisters. If moneyís tight, Krown is a heck of an alternative!

 

Body Maintenance
 

Many vehicle owners make the unfortunate mistake of neglecting the aesthetics of their vehicles.  The overall appearance and condition of a vehicle body has a tremendous impact on the value of a vehicle.

A well kept car is safer and has a higher resale value. Apply the following tips to ensure your car is at it's peak performance.

  • Wash your car regularly -- at least once a week. Simply keeping your car clean will ensure dirt and moisture doesn't build up and lead to rust.
  • Make sure all drain ports are free of debris. Insert an ordinary drinking straw in the drains to make sure they are clear. Doors, rocker panels, rear and quarters have drain ports.
  • Once a year, have the entire vehicle re-sprayed with Krown or a similar product. The sooner you apply Krown Rust Control, the sooner your car is protected.
  • Wax your vehicle at least once a year.  Do not use harsh detergents (such as dish soap) to wash your vehicle, as they will remove waxes. McConville's recommends waxing your vehicle once a year.
