How to Fix Surface Rust on a Car
This Caravan has been repaired before and is starting to rust along the
bottom edge of the door. It appears that someone has installed a door skin
before and the didn't do the best job in the world. The rust along the
bottom can be removed but nobody can guarantee the rest of the door won't
do the same thing over time as nobody knows to what degree this door was
To start you will want to use either a grinder or a paint stripping wheel
to remove as much as possible. Once you are at your limit with the
stripping wheel move on to your spot blaster to remove the rust not
accessible with the grinder. A little bit of putty was applied to level out
the area a tad however I think it was wobbly to begin with, the whole door
bottoms are like this from the skin being incorrectly installed. This type
of repair will get the guy down the road but without stripping the whole
door who knows what will happen. We can not guarantee this kind of work but
given the cost of redoing someone elses work it is not in the budget for
this customer. Lesson learned, have it done right the first time.
REPAIRING A WHEELARCH
This wheelarch, like many others, is double skinned. This video shows
repairing it with pingun and panel pullers.
Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The
right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in,
no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be
neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't
reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process...
Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially,
there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...
