2007 NNBS Minor rust appearing in the taillight housing

2007 NNBS Minor rust appearing in the taillight housing

Postby j-dawg54 [OP] » Mar 21 2013, 8:08pm

When I changed a light bulb in the taillights I noticed that it is very dirty in there and I saw that it is showing early signs of rust.

I am waiting for the spring to come out in about a month - 40 days. I was thinking about removing the taillights and shield the cables and clean it out really good.

Question is, should I paint any rust prevention or similar? What do you guys recommend?

Once you clean it out good, you could put some rust inhibitor on. But, I would also find some undercoating, like Krown, and spray it in there once a year, before winter. I'd even look at getting the whole truck undercoated once a year, it's worked on my trucks in the past.
