RUST on leading edge of hood!

Recommended Posts

I have been enjoying my time with my . RED TC 2012!  pleased with its drivability and decent fuel economy.  Last week i was doing under hood clean up and found BAD rusting under the caulked front edge of the hood ..  i scraped away the caulk and found this:  cleaned and scraped loose rust and applied several coats of Rustoleum Rust Preventer.  I will keep an eye on whether or not it really stops the rust as advertised....members might want to check this area... i assume i am not the only one with this issue...0?ui=2&ik=62442e916a&attid=0.1&permmsgid

Nope. Mine was dripping rust 7 years in.

I just checked mine and no rust issues.

Leading edge of the hood doesn't surprise me much. It can catch stones, rocks, road debris, bugs and the paint can chip a lot easier on an edge versus the flat section of a panel.

Here the under the front hood edge rust is minor compared to rest of the under carriage .

Way to many variables in parking inside or out, weather and weather related chemical treatment of salt and calcium that RUST anything they touch, etc etc,  to make any valid claim of a problem.
