How to Stop Rusting and Finally getting Rid Of Rust Using Rust Solution And Some Elbow Grease

First of all a brief apology for how long this has taken to do, I’ve been so busy the past week, I hoped to have this all finished by the weekend just gone :/ so much for that, but by the next couple of posts you will have completely stopped the rust and you will be ready to repair the car. This repair will last for the forseeable future.

so here we go- theres a lot to take in here so it miught be worth reading a couple of times

Now you’ve got everything it’s time to get started! The first thing I did was to give the car a complete wash, if you can’t be bothered with that just give the area you’re going to be working on a good wash, and then let it dry out a bit.

After that I assessed the situation and just tapped around at the worst areas to get any excess rust or rubbish free. Now grab your strongest wire brush and go over the area your treating, don’t be worried to press to hard, but also don’t necessarily brush down areas you don’t plan to treat.

If you do this it’s just unnecessary work to repair later and you will also break off any protective layers of paint and laqueur that are there.

After a while you should start to see some of the metal and rust coming through, you should also start to expose any holes in the rust areas if they are there.

This is the point where you can start to poke out the rust holes, as you do this eventually you’ll find a point where it’s strong metal again, but also be wary and apply some common sense, if it looks big enough to be welded- then you should probably leave it. But anything a bit bigger than a tennis ball I’d say is the limit if you want to do a decent lasting job on this repair. You could probably go a bit bigger still but that up to you, I wouldn’t go much past that though.

Once you’ve revealed the rust holes, go round them again with the wire brush so that you can clean up any excess loose pieces of rust. This is the part where we can start to get out the sand paper to clear any surface rust left over in the surrounding areas. You want to sand it down to the point where you can see the bare metal, and using a combination of the super rough to the fine types of sand paper you should aim to get this as smooth and shiny as possible.

Once you’ve done that, get one of the microfiber paint preparation wipes and thoroughly clean the area you’ve just sanded down, this will get rid of all the remnants of rust, dust and rust particles that are there from all the sanding and brushing down, this is so we can fully utilize the rust treatment solution you have.

Now depending on the rust solution you’ve got, follow the instructions on the back of the pot or packaging. With mine, it recommended putting the solution every 15 minutes for two hours at least and repeat until the rust is completely gone. Well mine was quite bad so I spent a whole two days doing this but the stuff definitely worked. In this situation there’s not much you can do really apart from wait and persist.
Alot of tea was drunk in this time.

Once you’ve finished the treatment, leave it for a day or so to let the rust treatment properly dry out and do it’s thing.

The next part is where the real progress takes place… properly repairing those holes, if yours is as bad as mine, I will also be explaining the fibre glassing process.

    Your hard drive might be recoverable. I would istlanl it into another computer as a secondary drive and attempt to run a full Disk Check. I hope that you have good backups, because if this does not work, you would have to send it to a very expensive data recovery service.Depending on the age of the parts, recycling would be tough. There may be a computer donation program in your community. Maybe the public school would know.
