Remove Rust from Metal and Panels the Easy Way: Video 1
"The easy and safe way to remove rust at home". I am amazed at how many
people have not heard of this method before. Some old school tips are more
useful today, it saved them money and it will save you time and money too.
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...

How To Do A Rustoleum Roller Paint Job For $70 And A Cheap Way to Fix Rust Holes $20
For $100 I put a quick patch job on this tired old Chevy Truck and plan to
flip a quick buck. Rolled on a coat of Rustoleum and patched up the huge
rust holes in the cab corners. They're notorious for rusting out. Got
some aluminum flashing for housing ($10), buy the guttering dept in Lowes,
Home Depot, etc. It's thin and easily shaped and cut with standard
scissors. Clean the rust deposits out from the site. Set some jack stands
down. Cut a piece of the thin aluminum to length and set it on top of the
jackstands almost touching the rusted area. Get a can of High Strength
Window sealent or Great Stuff ($4 at home depot) as it's called. Start
foaming the area in and piling layer over layer of sealent on top of the
aluminum. Once it is built up, fold the aluminum up and set jack stands
over to keep it help up. The foam will expand and is extremely sticky when
wet. Wear gloves! Once it's had a day to set, pull off the aluminum and
saw off the excess with a hack saw blade or knife. Sculpt it to form and
check the results. Can drill out holes in the aluminum, place it on and
put screws to hold the aluminum on the foam once dryed.
