Floor structure rust

rak1, Jul 10, 3:58pm
Took our 2010 Camry to vtnz for a WOF today and passed easily. Found a note at the bottom of the wof check sheet that said "floor structure rust developing". What does that mean and who do I get to fix it. Thanks for advise.

there will be surface rust starting somewhere. It would pay to get onto it before it becomes a problem.

you could try a doctor, a dentist or a panel beater. lol

Yes to diffentthings, go look for it, clean it and spray a rust inhibitor on it. Easy as at the moment.

Panel beater/car painter if you don't do it yourself. If you have a friendly local garage they can likely fix it.

If you do it yourself, bear in mind that time and travel has worn or rubbed off the original surface coating. Water or dust can even do that. So after rubbing off the surface rust, use a zinc rich primer/sealer, then put a durable top coat on it.
