ugh that's just confusing (and off topic now) because I thought you worked for them for.... eight years? haha.

But yes I did ask that as a question and for general instruction (for those lucky enough to have some rusty spots on their rides as well), especially considering I've got one hell of a mess called a rusty door and rocker panel on that other car of mine that I want to fix.

Lemme ask it as a question this time. What can I do to at least visually fix rusty body panels without simply spraying over the rust and hoping it doesn't show up again and flake off? I'd like it to be nice and clean for the new paint to go down.


I have very tiny "spark" sized rust spots around the body, and the rust has also run down across some painted body panels and stained the paint; buffing would not remove it. How can I fix this?
