The word from JC is sent some pics well see how we can help.
This is the filiform bible from Ohio. So far they are listening and seem to be willing to give some help.
Filiform corrosion is a natural process that occurs in aluminum. Although we try to combat the issue with a coated aluminum and we have had better success in recent years after switching to the coated aluminum, over time, some problem areas can arise. These are usually seen where the body panels flex during transit and where the clear coat has been chipped. Once the corrosion has started, there is no real way to completely remove it, other than to replace the affected panel. That being said, there are things you can do to combat the spread of the issue.
For treatment of corroded areas you should take the following steps (all the products mentioned below are available through our online store)
1.****** Remove the clear coat over the affected area. We recommend using a plastic scraper to prevent any damage to the aluminum.
2.****** Clean the affected area with denatured alcohol.
3.****** Using the product Corrosion-X (part # 90102W) applied to a soft cloth, wipe over the affected area, clean any excess off of the area.
4.****** Using the acrylic touch up pen (part # 90000W-03) go over the affected area to cover where the clear coat was removed. (for larger areas, you can also use a spray acrylic)
To prevent the issue in the future, Iíve attached an aluminum coating care guide that should help. We recommend washing the unit frequently and applying a protectant at least twice a year. You can use anything that is clear coat safe. You can also use the product T9 Boeshield (part # 90012W) on the seams and any other areas that may have an issue in the future. You just spray it on and it creates a protective layer on problem areas.
