Sliding door rust

Post by MXjames » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:13 pm

The roller has worn through the paint and there is rust forming. I'm getting it painted soon but is there any way of stopping the roller from wearing the paint again.

It is a topic in 'how to' section. In short, put some protective tape over, when it's fixed, like helicopter tape or similar.

I have applied it on mine about 6 month ago, no signs of peeling off yet. Even if it will at some point, it's easy to put new tape on. Much easier than do rust treatment and respraying anyway.
