If you want something to be done properly, I suggest you to bring it to the bodyshop.

Re: Best way to fix rust

If you simply sand the surface rust off and then prime over it, it'll just keep rusting. Gotta cut it out and weld in new sheet metal. That, or if it truly is just surface rust, sand every exposed surface of the metal and chemically treat it before priming and repainting.

^Follow this exactly, once the surface rust is gone (if thats the case) spray self etching primer on it before covering it with anything else. Post up some pics of the infected areas

Rust is like cancer. You can treat it but it won't stop unless cut it and replace it.

Re: Best way to fix rust

hey, do you tape and protect the surrounding area when painting the area being fixed? i know once you take the tape off, the difference is visible and you can also feel a line where the tape was when you pass your hand, how to you get rid of that or avoid it? buffing than waxing until its evened out???

If you wanted to do it in a professional manner, you would sand/prep the surrounding area as well, and feather it as you go outwards. Then, you would mask off a larger area, and focus on the repaired spot, and feather outwards. Afterward, you would cut/buff the area to smooth and fade into the original finish.

That's just the short and sweet version.

Re: Best way to fix rust

you should get out as much rust as you can, but if you don't treat and seal the metal with the proper product, it will eventually come back.

Paint Over Rust with Extend Rust Neutralizer from Loctite Adhesives
