RAM 3500 Rust repair
Can the rust in my RAM 3500 be repaired?
Rust is one of the dreaded problems that face owners of older RAM 3500's or RAM 3500's that are driven in salty conditions. Often occurring in areas that trap moisture, such as behind quarter panels and underneath windscreens, the visible signs of rust include bubbling paint and brown flaking metal. These areas need to be taken care of, otherwise your RAM 3500 may rust away to nothing!
That’s where rust repairs come in. Depending on the location and severity of rust on your RAM 3500, a simple clean off of surface rust and treatment with a rust converter may be all that is required, or full removal of the rotted metal and replacement with fresh metal if the damage is severe. Depending on where the rust is located, the windscreen or other components may need to be removed from your RAM 3500 to allow access to the affected area.
Panel repair shops, smash repairers or vehicle restoration businesses are the go-to places to have the rust repaired on your RAM 3500. You will often be without your RAM 3500 for a number of days or weeks, depending on the amount of work required. Getting your RAM 3500 inspected by a professional will guide you on whether these repairs are economical, or if your RAM 3500 might be better off heading to the great car yard in the sky.
