View Full Version : minor hail damage = rust?

hey all,

got stuck out in the open in a little hail storm last week...

my 99 ironman has tiny, tiny dings all over it. like pin pricks almost.

looks like maybe just the clear coat is chipped off?

it's really hard to see unless you look at it in the right light.

my question is...

is it gonna rust on those spots ?

could a good waxing or clear coat or something fix me up ?

insurance says they will pay, but i really don't wanna deal with that unless i have to

If insurance will pay - go for it. The environmental effects on unprotected paint may take a while to show up but eventually they will. Waxing would just be a bandaide.

BTW - spent some time down in your neck of the woods (years ago). I took several classes at UT Tullahoma. Beautiful area. Also flew into Nashville on many occasions to perform testing at Fort Campbell & my Sis lives in Brentwood.

If that paint is broken, it will all go to hell pretty quickly. Get it fixed now....they won't pay for rust repair later.
