Default DIE RUST DIE!!!!!! *update*

Well i started getting the car ready for winter.

Im taking care of the rust around the passenger side 1/4 pannle.

and did some on the bottem edges of the doors.
I love this stuff my dad got from EastWood. its the best rust stoper iv ever seen











Now with the stuff on, and it happens to be a nice Gloss black too
But im still going to do filler and i got some of my Black 8555.






Next is to start doing the body filler, when sand, sand, more sanding. then paint..

Then tomarow im going to do the calybar i got last week and see if i can make her look and better.
This upstate salt rust is like fighting a loosing battle :(

looks like you did a good job... hopefully it works for ya... id be scared sanding my baby like that... but if you have a rust hole its not gonna be that bad...

if i were you, id take off that rubber seal unless its rusted to bad also... so you can paint under there

never noticed the rust in any of your pics.. you hide the defects just like me

id do that to my van if i gave a **** ha

They say black is the toughest color to match because of fade etc. Looks darn good IMO.

A little glossier black is much better than an ugly rust spot.

I almost agree with Haro.. you probably have more rust under the rubber seal...unlike him..I know..rubber doesn't rust...lol

yeah it was rusty under there but the bolts looked soo bad that i didn;t want to have to replace anthing else at this time. dont have the money...:(

Once the paint fll harddens im going to polish and buff that area to see if i can get ti to match a little better. and maybe if it still looks too good i might take some sand in my hand and try to make it match the res of my car lol

Haro- yeah its a little nerv racking to start to grinde and sand into yor baby but it had to be done.. im hopping that it last throw the winter up here, cuz iv done this befor to other cars and the Salt is soo bad up here that it start to make te Bondo come out :(

well in 6 months we will see how she looks, one thng im supprised about it that there isn;t really any rust in the engine bay... that way only like two spots and i hit them wth that black rust stopper.

Black can be tough, for exactly the reason you state.....the finish(Sheen) is tough to match. True Color match is always easy, if it a true black. (Some manufacturers used what should have been labeled 'deep purple'

Whites, and any metallic are the pain in the arse!
