Rusty Gutter

A length of metal gutter runs down each side of the van, designed to trap rain and channel it away. Because water accumulates in it, rust is inevitable.

We weren't going to bother sorting out the rusty gutter because we didn't think it looked that bad. However, the more of the van we made look good, the worse the gutter looked in comparison. So we decided to sort it out after all.

Here it is before we started work on it:

The loose stuff was removed with a wire brush, and treated with Kurust. What was left looked pretty shocking!

It then needed to be filled and strengthened with P38.

The P38 was then sanded, and we got the van ready for spraying.

And here's the finished gutter, after spraying. Looks much better.

  1. It’s a good thing that you decided to address the problem with rust on your gutter before it has escalated to a more severe damage. And I can say that you did a great job in restoring it. It’s hard to see the damaged state it was in before.
