Best way to get rid of rust?

4 posts in this topic

My R reg fiesta has a bit of rust on it, as is expected. There is a little bit, about 2 inches long, on the drivers door sill and a bit about 2 inches on the right rear door on the curvy bit in line with the wheel arch (technical language thrives)

My dad thinks that just sanding it down, putting rust protector stuff that i glanced at in Halfords, and then filling it and priming and spraying it again. Would this be the best course of action?

The rust doesn't go through the metal, more like surface rust. Just want to make it look a bit nicer.

Thanks

:rolleyes: Just when you sand mate you want to try and sand the smallest patch possible you want to spray as less as you posssibly can
