Rust Repair

Aside from our Beer & Cheese Vermont is known for our long snowy winters, and for us driving enthusiasts that means one thing - rust. Generally speaking your local Body Shop is the best place take care of most rust repairs but, when it comes to getting under the vehicle, that is where many shops draw the line. This is where the Rust Repair Experts at The 4x4 Center excel. Here are some of the big questions we get regularly to give you an idea of the type of work we do, and how we do it.


My frame has a rust hole in it and it can't pass inspection, what should I do?

We are going to evaluate both the hole and your entire frame because there are really two ways to address the issue. A) Do you just need the vehicle for another year? or B) Do you want this to last a lot longer? At the end of the day, 2 or 3 rusted frame repairs could add up to be the entire cost of an entire rusted frame replacement. We'll help you decide which is best for you and your vehicle by giving you the facts. Vermont frame repair isn't one of those things that every shop will do because it requires extra time and often customized fabricated parts - things we do every day for our customers. So if you have a rotten frame, give us a call and let's take a look at it.

My Rocker Pannel / Fender has a hole and it is uninspectable, what should I do?

This is a great project for your local body shop. While we would love to fix everything, this kind of body work is not our specialty.
