Preventing Rusting in Car Dents

It’s virtually inevitable that every car owner will notice a dent at some point. Minor fender benders, errant shopping carts, and road debris are all common causes of dents. A dent specialist in Sunnyvale can expertly repair these unsightly blemishes, and perform a professional paint touch-up. But in the meantime, there’s a simple trick you can use to prevent rust from developing on the exposed metal.

Watch this video to see a car enthusiast use 3M 1080 series wrap. With scissors, cut off a piece of wrap large enough to completely cover the dent. Press it firmly against the area from the bottom up, making sure to get all of the wrinkles out. Then, use a hairdryer to seal the wrap to the car. This is only a temporary fix to prevent rust—you’ll still need to take your car to a detailer for a permanent repair.
