    Grimmspeed Master Cylinder Brace Question.

    Hey guys,

    I had this part installed about 6 or so months ago right before a track event and it was awesome. My question is however, should I be worried about the rust that's forming on it? I live in Boston and this car is my DD. The part was powder coated but I suspect the finish was damaged during install. I was going to clean it up as best as I could with some alcohol and use a detail brush and locktite rust treatment on the small blotches. Any advice or suggestions? I'll have to look into the heat range for the product but I wouldn't apply it and then drive the car without the proper curing time, and I'd use a high temp paint to cover over the touch-upped areas.

    I'd worry about it about as much as you would worry about the rust underneath your car.

    ^ Thanks guys! I'd have to concur. I figured that was the case, I just thought I had done something to promote it.

    I'd agree with what was said above. If you've damaged the powder coat in some spots it will definitely rust in those areas that no longer have powder coat because it is steel. If you want you could hit it with some sand paper and use some black paint to touch up the spots that got damaged.

    Yea that's the plan. I'm going to clean it up and hit it with the rust converter and then high temp paint, only because I don't want to pull the entire part to do a sand and paint on the hard to reach places. It will be a nice weekend project. Also thanks for the response! I got one on the forum before the one I entered on the site was responded to.
