Rust on my lude!!!

Ok, so I found out I'm having a bit of rust on the left quarter panel on my 5th gen, sucks. And I have a chipped hood, just a very small chip, then after the rain, it formed a bit of orange/yellowish rust. Ok, so how do i remove rust?

Re: Rust on my lude!!!

if its just now appearing you can hit it with a little bit of scotch brite to actually remove the rust clean it and spray it. any local parts store carries primer that stops rust from speading. prime and paint. the longer you let it go the deeper the pits and cancer will get. take care of it now while its still surface rust.

Re: Rust on my lude!!!

why would you tell him to let it go? that's stupid as hell. they have chemical that changes rust back into good metal. if it's just surface rust, just get it touched up. if it's rot, you gotta cut it out and weld in a new piece

Re: Rust on my lude!!!

I'm just sayin mine is really incurable at it's stage so I'm gonna let it go, not for him to let his go. His sounds very minor, def. can be fixed.

Re: Rust on my lude!!!

the product doesnt magically turn the rust back to good metal it stops the metal from oxidizing which will be better protected in the spot that you treat then the rest of the car a little surface rust isnt the best reason to be replacing parts in my opinion unless your lazy and rich lol

Re: Rust on my lude!!!

If it's just surface rust, it's probably best to sand out that rust. There's a chemical called Ospho that basically converts rust to paintable primer and also inhibits rust development. You can paint over the Ospho after applying to make sure that rust doesn't come back. Be careful with that stuff, it's basically acid, so gloves are a must. I had a puncture in a glove I was working with and didn't notice it until I felt the burn. Hurt like hell for a while.

I'll add that Harbor Freight (and other places) sell abrasive pencils that are good for sanding rust out of chip. You can also use sandpaper around a pencil tip or for larger chips, you can use a hole punch to cut out a spot of sand paper from a sheet and then glue that flat to the end of a dowel rod or unsharpened pencil. I'd think 600 grit should be fine for the purpose. Pat it with tack cloth (or tape) to remove the abrasive particles, then wipe it with rubbing alcohol to remove dirt/humidity and follow the instructions on your Ospho/rust converter bottle. Apply a thin coat of primer, a thin coat of touch up paint and then successive coats of clear coat. Build the clear coat above the original coat. Level it with your sanding pencil (this time 1000 grit or finer), polish it with rubbing compound and then Meguiar's Scratch-X to remove haze. Give it a couple of weeks to cure and then wash/wax to protect.
