I have a little bit of rust on my CD Silver '00 Focus, most notably in the usual places. Just a little on the rockers and on the bottom of the doors.



I want to get it painted up before the winter, because I like this car and I want it to last long and look nice.


How much would this (roughly) cost? Anyone in the OH area know anyone good?

Is OH Cancer in any way related to NY Cancer? lol

My first Focus had it and I took it to a local body shop. They said the doors were too thin so they couldn't do it. Since then I sold that car to my dad and he has been trying to keep the rust down with sanding and painting. It hasn't been working well. I now that none of this will probably help but that is about all I know.

I live in Canton Ohio, I am starting to get hints of rust.. Best thing is to either replace the panel because once rust started underneath it will NEVER stop. Or get on having it fixed ASAP. Also get some linex, or rhinoliner roll on and get underneath the car and start rolling.
