(A) prohibition of heat repair for body

(A) prohibition of heat repair for body frame parts

(1) rustproof high strength steel sheets are used for the body frame. Therefore, if these parts are heat repaired using an acetylene torch or equivalent, the crystalline structure changes, causing the strength of the steel sheets to decrease. Also, the zinc corting which is used to protect the body from rust will be damaged. This causes the surface of the steel sheets to become oxidized, which reduces their ability to resist rust.
