1. Wire brush or sand to remove loose rust and dirt. Repair area must be clean. Run car 5-10 minutes before applying bandage. 2. Peel backing from bandage. Wrap bandage around damaged area, overlapping the edges at least 1/2°; for extra protection, overlap edge 1″. 3. Secure bandage temporarily on both ends with wire. 4. Run car 30 minutes. Heat from the exhaust system welds the epoxy resin in the bandage to a solid coating.
