other sharp object.                               collect  on  the  underbody.  If  these
materials are  not removed,  acceler-
ated rusting can occur on underbody
parts  such as  the  fuel lines,  frame,
floor pan  and exhaust system,  even
though they  have been  treated with
rust protection.
Thoroughly flush  the  vehicle under-
body and  wheel openings with luke-
warm  or cold  water  once  a month,
after off-road  driving and at  the end
of each  winter. Pay special attention
to these  areas because  it is difficult
to see all  the mud and dirt.  It will do
more  harm than  good  to wet  down
the  road grime  without  removing it.
The  lower  edges   of  doors,  rocker
panels,  and  frame   members  have
drain   holes   that    should   not   be
allowed  to   clog  with   dirt;  trapped
water in these areas can cause rust-
To  protect the  surfaces  of  bright-
metal parts from corrosion, apply a
coating of  wax  or chrome  preser-
vative and rub to a high  luster.
During winter weather or in coastal
areas, cover the bright  metal parts
with  a  heavier coating  of  wax  or
preservative. If necessary, coat the
parts with non-corrosive petroleum
jelly or other protective compound.
If   your  vehicle   is   damaged   and
repair    or
replacement, be  sure the body  shop
applies  anti-corrosion  materials  to
the parts repaired or replaced.
