5.0stanger- For now that's all I've painted. I'm taking the bumper cover off sunday to get rid of those patches you see...I've also got some surface rust in the door hinge area and on the bottoms of the doors to get rid of and paint.
Permetex make a anti rust spray that stops rust build up all you so is clean the rusted area and spray 2 coast on the area . when its dry the area turns black on the rusted area then all u have to do is prime and paint it works prety good I sprayed it on a few frames on truck us efor salting roads and plowing streets it is didnt show a sign of rust at all
POR-15 would have stopped it permanently...i'm gonna paint my new gas tank with it to seal it for good.
