Rust

Post by 100%NewZealand on Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:04 am

My 3rd gen like most has some rust, after I hit it with wire brush and possibly a sand blaster does anyone have any suggestions for a rust preventative to hit it with after? Seems like the rust has been getting worse the last month or two (or it could be i'm just now noticing ) anyway just wanna keep things in good condition.

I think after hitting it with a wire wheel, a couple coats of a good self-etching primer and a couple coats of paint and you should be good. That's what I'll be doing to my bumpers shortly.

You can also get black rust convertor. That's what I use, looks like paint and converts rust. Food for thought.

I would definitely do a coat of that then do the self etching and then go paint. Helps with all the little piece. you could take it down and have them sandblasted. It is fairly inexpensive and removed all the paint and rust normally.
