Re: Rust! Please help

if it is just surface rust, you may be able to grind it down. If it's deep rust you are probably better off cutting out that panel and welding a new one in. definately avoid the cutting and welding if you can

Re: Rust! Please help

Do you think I could remove it with a wire brush? If I can get it off should I seal it with something?

If you have a wire-wheel that goes on a drill that'll work well. And then prime it and paint it black or whatever color you'd like.

yep yep

they make specific drill brushes to remove rust and paint.

but like IanQ said, make sure to prime it, that will seal it.

Re: Rust! Please help

yeup the not uncommon surface rust! and indeed like the people above had said their are time saving tools, and I mean time saving, like these two items Disk one disk two that attach to any common drill and takes a 3 hour job to a 30 min job and still get better results!

priming it would be ok but you would want to make sure to use a primer and a primer sealer or one that does both(i'd paint mine too but its up to you). it really just looks like surface rust from what I can see but yeah def grind that down and get that all taken care of

Re: Rust! Please help

This is what I have done so far with a wire brush. Does all of it have to be gone or just the really ruff stuff?

Re: Rust! Please help

The more you take it down the better. looks like you should wipe it down really good, and go at it again with the wire brush until there is nothing left.

Re: Rust! Please help

Okay so here are the before and after pictures, please let me know if you think I should try to remove more. So I have to put a primer on is there one that is good for this kind of thing? And what do I have to put on it after the primer?

Re: Rust! Please help

That looks pretty good, nice work. with what you have already done, and using that product that UPSLuder mentioned, you should be golden. good luck with the rest of the project. remember: protect surrounding areas from over spray. i.e. seats, plastics, etc.

Re: Rust! Please help

I would use primer just in case. It sounds like the rust converter changes the chemical properties, but doesn't mention sealing the metal. I know primer will seal the metal, preventing rust from forming. personally, I would primer it as well, and probably paint it, even though it won't be seen.

As far as preventative measures; just keep an eye on places on the car that are prone to rust and take action quickly, before it starts to eat at the panels. surface rust can be removed much easier than a deep rust spot.

^sealer seals the metal, primer is a prep layer for paint.

use the extend rust converter, seal the metal, prime if you want.
