    Default 2019 Mazda 3 hatch rustproof...

    Hi guys. Do holes need to be drilled in my car for rust proofing or are the factory pre drilled holes good enough?

    Drilling holes is absolutely necessary for full coverage, and the reason being; there are several areas where pre-existing holes are not available.

    If your worried about drilling holes, don't. I had my car Krowned almost fifteen years ago and holes were drilled and capped. I've yet to find any rust around the holes or has the integrity of the body been compromised in any way. Car is as solid as ever.

    Totally agree with Flagrum
    On Krown since 2013 and drilled holes not an issue.
    Product works ..
