Removing Rust Underside of Door
#11
The rust was already there , it just got worse as time moved on . I'm in the process of getting the car legitimate/fixed , kind of surprised me it even started . The rust is flaky but not deep , the rust on the LSC has almost eaten completely threw and the bottom ledge underneath the door is bubbling out too . On that note how would a body shop address this ??

If the rust was extensive (not just surface) they would cut it out and weld new metal in. If it's just surface, they would grind it off clean and then acid treat the metal, etch prime/sealer, then paint.

This is probably one of the best on the market for rust just painted my ladder rack with it you paint right over the rust and it works. Also did this to a salt truck in High school auto body the pants from that day still have the hard black stain. http://www.por15.com/

Doors probably needs to be sand blasted and repainted, if it is just a little surface rust, wipe some penetrating oil on it.

I have fought that door rust battle before and lost. I even had a great body shop do it the second time and the cancer came back again after 1.5 years. The only way I won the battle was to get another rust free door and have it painted to match the car.Problem solved.Rust never came back to that door.Sometimes if your lucky you can find a door that is the same color.

My door color might be hard to find ;D

Took the LSCR-1 to a body shop and was instantly told to go to a restoration shop . According to him his guys wouldn't even know where to start :fawk: The rust looks bad , unfortunately the car has to be stored outdoors with a cover. Would you be able to access the "sandwich" part of the door from the inside with the panel removed? Really haven't had to do much poking around in these doors hence the reason I'm asking. The autobody guy told me $1K unpainted for a donor door. Entirely too steep for my liking.

Maybe I should focus on the dew sweeps before I start to paint. Probably why the doors are rusting out in the first place.

So I : Sand, Use any of the products listed above , Prime and than whats the best multipurpose finish spray paint to use just on the undersides. I'm not concerned about it because both cars have to be reshot anyway.

Thanks again
