LEER truck caps, also called truck toppers and camper shells, are constructed of strong, resilient fiberglass or tough non-corrosive aluminum. Most are the same height as the truck cab; some models are somewhat taller. Most can accommodate a roof rack, adding to their cargo-carrying capacity. Fiberglass camper shells are painted using formulas that match those originally used by the truck manufacturer, and preferred by residential customers. Aluminum caps are preferred by contractors, service technicians, and others working in rugged environments. Tonneau covers (tonnos, lids and cargo covers) retain the characteristic profile of pickup trucks, covering and securing the truck bed at the top of the cargo box. LEER tonneau covers are made of fiberglass and provide attractive, secure storage, transportation and security, turning the truck bed into a huge lockable "trunk," enhancing the finished look of the vehicle, and improving gas mileage by reducing aerodynamic drag.Request Appointment »
Corrosion Prevention For Your Vehicle:
Four Steps for Protecting Your Car from Rust
Despite recent advances in the materials and manufacture of vehicles, corrosion is still with us. You can hardly miss the effects of rust as you commute to and from work. The sight of cars and trucks with rusty fenders, doors and frames is as common now as it was decades ago. In fact, the need for corrosion protection has become more urgent that ever.
Why is this? Many transportation experts blame the new generation of road de-icing chemicals, particularly magnesium chloride. This compound forms a crystalline film on the body and the windows of vehicles that is difficult to wash off. “MagChlor” draws moisture from the air and the residue on the vehicle becomes actively corrosive at humidity rates below 25 percent. Adding to the threat is the fact that many government entities use magnesium chloride for dust control on dirt and gravel roads. For many vehicles exposed to a range of driving conditions, magnesium chloride can be a year-round problem, not just a seasonal one.
Fortunately, rust/corrosion prevention is still possible. By following a regular program of corrosion prevention coating, anti-corrosion spray, and other maintenance, you can keep your car in excellent condition. Here’s how:
1. Start from the inside. The mechanism of corrosion requires that an electrolyte, usually water, come into contact with the steel. Therefore, whatever you can do to prevent this interaction is critical to achieving anti corrosion protection. Applying an anti-corrosion spray wax helps prevent inside-out rust. The wax is inserted into selected vehicle cavities located in the doors, hood, trunk frame, fenders, quarter panels and rocker panels. It then forms a barrier that prevents the electrolyte from coming into contact with the metal.
2. Protect the underbody. The underbody of the vehicle takes a daily pounding from the environment, which can cause rust to form on the floorboards and brake lines. A quality asphalt-based anti-corrosion coating designed to withstand the impact of road debris can protect the underbody and prevent the formation of rust. A key advantage of asphalt-based products is that, unlike rubberized coatings, they will not peel or flake off.
3. Maintain that paint. A vehicle’s paint also plays a crucial role in car corrosion prevention. Any chips or scratches should immediately be treated with the appropriate touch-up paint, available from your auto dealership. If professional bodywork becomes necessary, don’t delay. Likewise, be sure to replace anti corrosion barrier coatings upon completion of any repairs.
4. Wash your car! One very simple method of corrosion protection for cars is to wash the vehicle frequently. Take particular care to remove all chemicals from the bodywork and to thoroughly rinse the wheel wells and underbody. Never wash your vehicle with dishwasher or clothing detergent! Such products can dull or even scratch the paint. A pH neutral car wash solution is recommended. In a pinch, baby shampoo will do the job!
By following each of these four anti corrosion protection steps, you can keep your vehicle rust free, enjoy it more and increase its trade-in value.Request Appointment »
