Rust

8 posts in this topic

Evening everyone,

I have a problem with rust on the inside of both rear doors. It's along the bottom currently and I'm worried its going to spread.

Is this a problem I can fix myself? If so any tips would be great. If not does anyone have a rough idea of how much it will cost if I take it to a body repair shop?

Cheers

A quick sand down and a dab of rust cure will work a treat.

A careful spray with primer, colour matched paint and lacquer will be all you need.

As it's not a place where someone will normally look a perfect finish is not necessary unless you prefer perfection.

Please do.

That reminds me that I have a fingernail sized spot of rust up under my wheel arch that needs doing when I get back off holiday.

Just need to get some primer and curust.

waxoil the inside of the doors most tins come with a flexible nozzle that will fit in the drain hole and it will kill any internal rust
