Excessive corrosion can result in a fail of your MOT test but the decision to repair rust or corrosion on your vehicle yourself should not be taken lightly.
The first step in rust or corrosion repair is to identify the type of base metal you are working with. To do so, refer to the vehicle’s body manual, or use a magnet. If the magnet sticks to the metal, it’s steel. If it doesn’t, it’s more than likely aluminum.
In the past, most vehicle panels were made of steel. Today, manufacturers use new metals and plastics to make vehicles lighter and more fuel-efficient. Aluminum, for example, is rapidly becoming standard on many vehicle lines, including Honda, Jaguar and Audi. You’ll find aluminum panels in roofs, hoods, doors, quarter panels, tailgates and fenders. Plastics, as used on the 2005 Corvette cowl panel, are also gaining popularity.
