Chassis Protection


Recommended Posts

I’ve been giving some thought to how I can protect my repaired chassis from corrosion and have been reading a bit about electroplating and phosphate coatings.

I’d also like to avoid any grit blasting during the cleanup process as the stuff gets everywhere and I really don’t want the internal void spaces to have a load of residual grit left in them which I’ve seen before, even after flushing and blowing through with air.

So I’m thinking along the lines of a chemical dipping process that will initially get rid of surface paint, oil etc and then another process that will get to every nook and cranny both inside and out and treat/coat any internal surface rust or exposed surfaces where I’ve welded new crossmembers etc.

There is of course galvanising but I also want to look at alternatives.
