Light Buckets RUST?

Recommended Posts

My headlight buckets survived real well, my car had little rust, mostly drivers floor area, but those pesky tailight buckets have little holes....is this a common problem?? My friends nos pile has cool 39 stuff but no 40..

oh come on........this is Ohio, in the heart of the rust belt...

they are exposed to the outside, moisture should not enter them, to rust them

no drains just rust....( my car came from Tarheel country, see above post..

Hey Jeff, maybe the holes are not there for drainage, but to give you light to work on your brakes -- you know, turn on the headlights, light passes through the holes and *voila*! Just think of me as the guy who stands in your garage, drinking a beer and watching you work, while giving unhelpful advice ;) That said, I actually have seen drain holes in tailight housings (other makes) before. Maybe the manufacturers didn't trust the seals...

That stuff is a bed liner for pickup trucks Harry, it is sprayed on and tough as anything you ever saw. My two son's have it in the beds of their trucks and it beats the plastic drop in liners a ton.

As for Cecil's idea, I have been doing that for years, drink a beer, look at car,, drink a beer look at car some more, drink another beer, develop great idea.

Drink another beer, forget idea.

I sprayed my floorboards with it on my 39 sedan... stuff is bullet proof!! put carpet over it and no one will ever be the wiser.... worked really good and deadened some road noise.
