If you live in areas that see a lot of harsh weathers, you will understand that the cab corner is one of the most susceptible parts of your vehicle to damage. First and foremost, it is located in the exterior. So, it is one of the parts exposed to road salt, snow, moisture, road debris, and sun's rays. Second, its location makes it easy to neglect the part. One day, you won't even notice it. The next day, you'll be surprised that it's already failing.
The most common form of damage that cab corners encounter is rusting. Due to age, constant exposure to environmental elements, and sometimes driving abuse, the said part gets rusted and corrodes over time. Now, there are two problems that stem from this. The first one is the lousy look that a rusted corner provides. Rusting can make your vehicle look too worn for use, so you might simply want to drive it into the junkyard. Another problem, and this one's more serious, is that rusting can spread if it is not properly addressed at once. If you neglect the problem, the rust can spread to the surrounding metal panels. So, the longer you prolong addressing the problem, the worse the problem gets.
Knowing this, it's very important to get a cab corner replacement as soon as you notice that the existing corner in your vehicle is already starting to show signs of rusting. When getting a new part, select one that does not only fit but one that also works well-one that can resist damage, is easy to mount, and looks good. Heavy-gauge steel corners are good options. If you can get those that come with specialized anti-rust coating, that would be even better.
Mounting of the new car cab corner can be done on your own, with no need to pay for a mechanic. All you have to do is to have the right tools with you and adhere to the recommended safety precautions. For ease in removing the old corner, use a cut-off wheel. Don't forget to use gloves and goggles during the job as protection when cutting and welding the part.
