Can A Rusted Frame On A Vehicle Be Repaired?

Professional body shops can repair a rusted frame in most cases, but it depends on the type of rust. Surface, scale, and penetrating rust are the three types of rust. Surface rust is a simple and inexpensive fix. Scale rust, which exposes the bare metal beneath the paint, can be repaired, but it's more difficult. Rust penetrates the car's steel, converting it to iron oxide, making it brittle, and allowing holes to form. This is a lot more difficult to fix.

Contacting an experienced auto body mechanic is the only way to determine if your vehicle's rust is repairable. Time is also crucial because the longer you allow the rust to accumulate, the more difficult it will be to repair.
