Hi,

After removing my inner


Hi,

After removing my inner door panels, I was surprised to see almost no heavy rust within my doors. They are look solid and clean. There is, however, a slight hint of surface rust around the drain holes - about a 3"x3" area - very minor (for the time being!).

I was just going to paint this area with a rust encapsulator, but rather than risk making a mess , I am wondering if I can get away with coating with WD40 to inhibit/prevent any spreading or use a rust inhbiting wax spray (as offered by Eastwood).

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi!

Like you, I found my do


Hi!

Like you, I found my doors solid even though fenders were going! While they are open would be a good time for something like Ziebart!

We decided it needed MORE drain holes.

I'll back Mark up on the L

I'll back Mark up on the LP3. Used in aircraft also.

Before sealing it up treat the rust with a chemical conversion coating. For ferrous metals like that in your doors I use a rust treatment called Ospho from the local Ace Hardware. The key ingredient is phosforic acid. Brush or pour it on and let it dry overnight. It stops the rusting process and changes the composition from Iron Oxide to another element I can't think of at the moment.

Seal it up with Por15, LP3 or Dinol and you are ready to go!
