Body areas exposed to stone chipping

  Note
The marked areas are exposed to stone chipping.
When sanding these areas, note thicknesses of the paint structure and avoid sanding through. This is the only way to ensure long-term corrosion protection.
–  It is recommended to carefully sand the marked area by hand to avoid “sanding through” the cathodic dip primer.
