TE backplate rust


I’ve had the TE round 1 for about 4 years now I think and have only just noticed the edges on the backplate have darkened.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do to clean/prevent further build up.

  1. remove plate
  2. sand down to the bare metal
  3. repaint
  4. clearcoat
  5. reinstall

There’s another thread here that talks about a spray-on Plasti-dip that seems like a good idea as well.


What Freedom said is correct. If you have really bad panels, try this stuff—> http://www.homedepot.com/p/Corroseal-Rust-Converter-Primer-82320/202960538
