Help with rust spots

Postby shootable Goose » Fri Dec 21, 2012 9:09 pm

So I have some rust spots In a few places on my truck. Also the inner part of the door on the bottom on both sides is rusting. It's not to bad right now but I'm the last year it's definitly getting worse. I have heard that 2nd gen dodges are notorious for the door rust problem, something with the draining of water In the door doesn't quite work, and the water just sits there and rusts.
So my question is does anybody know how to stop the rusting without replacing my doors or breaking the bank? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Spray undercoating in the inside of the door is how my friend did it on his 03 Chevy . Loooked really good . Then he got some color matched stuff called chip gaurd to do the outside rocker panels

cut, weld, paint/ undercoat if its eating through the metal/ bubbling. but if its just on the surface of the metal you might be able to grind away the rust then paint.

Remove all rust; cut and replace or grind out and repair. Could go either way, rust sucks. :eek:

You guys ever heard of rust converter? Supposedly you spray/paint it on the rust and it chemically changes the rust into "not rust"

Yes, i think you're taking about a product like POR15. It does exactly like you said, but it's not the real fix to the problem. If you're on a tight budget it'll work though

like AJ said, POR15 more or less just stops/ slows the rust. it doesnt really modify it back into non-corroded metal.
