The rear wheel openings on your vehicle are constantly sprayed with salt and road debris as you drive.Β Itβs only a matter of time before the mix of water, salt, and mud causes corrosion to form. Before you know it, you see the dreaded paint bubbles starting to form around the lip of the wheel arch. The good news is that if you catch it in time, you can sometimes replace just the area of the arch thatβs rusting out. If paint is already falling off, and youβre able to poke your finger through the side of your vehicle, you may need to replace the entire wheel arch and possibly the inner wheelhouse. Whether the rear wheel opening on your vehicle is just starting to bubble, or is completely rusted out, we have the wheel arch repair panels to help you fix your rust problem.
All of our wheel arch patch panels are constructed of heavy gauge stamped steel that meets or exceeds the thickness of the original body panel that itβs replacing. The stamping process starts with a 3D scan of an OEM part, which means that these aftermarket panels will be an exact match to the original partβs shape. Since the panels are an exact match, the old panel will need to be cut out so that the new one can be welded in its place.
Each panel has an EDP coating for additional corrosion protection. The e-coating leaves a black finish that can be scuffed and painted over. For best finishing results we recommend scuffing the e-coat, priming, and then top coating with an automotive grade paint.
