DIY Rust Repair Cheap And Easy!

Опубликовано: 13 дек. 2015 г. 4 550 239 просмотров

In this video I filmed from start to finish as I repaired the door sill on my 2009 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg. This is by no means the "right way" to do the job. The only way to completely remove rust is to cut it out and weld in a replacement piece of steel. This video is for those of you who are sick of looking at a rust spot on your car and don't want to spend the money at a professional auto body repair shop. In this video I explain the step by step DIY process of how to repair rust and paint your car, motorcycle, tractor, etc.

    Craig Roberts Sr. Год назад The rust is gone but did you kill all the chlorides in the steel that caused the rust in the first place?. The rust will come back if you didn't. Sand down and before you paint soak the area with Skunk Rust which soaks into the metal and kills the contaminants the grinder cannot get. After that paint and the rust will not come back. Believe me I have done this and if you don't kill the reason for the rust it will return. FYI

  • Eric Lee
    Eric Lee 2 года назад Way to put your hands in the issue, right on man. Thnx for posting this, it shows people to not be scared to DIY. Having decades of experience with body-n-paint, i might suggest one added measure if you don't mind. i realize this was intended as a quick/easy fix, and that it is, but I would spray the metal with an oxidation neutralizer; such as OSPHO or even just the good ol' Duro Extend treatment at least. The oxidation is occurring deep inside the metal and just a good sanding and paint will not stop it. Many metals absorb moisture, trapping it inside. It is possible to kill the oxidation process chemically, then this repair will last a good long time. Cheers!

  • diver dave
    diver dave 2 года назад ...mmm??? would it help if i used a hair dryer on the bare metal after the rust was sanded off, to help dry the metal before using the oxidation neutralizer !
  • hhova29
    hhova29 2 года назад Eric Lee hi, how would you treat this chemically?? You mean with a rust encapsulator like the Eastwood brand? I have some bubbling on my quarter panels around the wheel well.
  • Mikko Salamander
    Mikko Salamander 2 года назад You use an inhibitor or a rust neutralizer directly onto rusty metal. Try to get the flakes and bubbles off 1st THEN use your rusticide product. It may appear that after the sanding process that your product has been removed but continue the steps anyways. Its a chemical reaction to iron oxide
  • SunEagle Cherokee
    SunEagle Cherokee 2 года назад @Mikko Salamander What if I already have a hole in my driver door bottom edge the size of a quarter coin with about 8" of rust? What do you recomend to fill it with so bubbles don't reappear & door doesn't rot anymore? Thanx Mikko !

  • crpth1
    crpth1 Год назад Jiggy5166 - Yes a torch can be used momentarily, but next morning all the moist will be right back. Beside the paint work don't like flames much. LOL :-) The trick in a car is not to try to avoid moist in fact unless for the ones living in the dry desert it's basically impossible. The trick it's to make the metal withstand reasonable amounts of moist, galvanized, painted ,etc. help a lot in extending the useful life of our cars before they turn into rust buckets. :-)
  • Craig Roberts
    Craig Roberts Год назад Eric you are correct. If you chemically neutralize the metal to kill the chlorides in the steel the repair will last a very long time. This repair has already started to rust again. Try Skunk Rust, it is paintable Ospho is not paintable without neutralizing the ospho.
  • Alex Banning
    Alex Banning Год назад In terms of extending the life of metal bodies, oxidation neutralizers are awesome, but from a chemistry standpoint your explanation is incorrect. Rust (oxidation of iron) and other oxidation processes happen on the surface of the metal only. Metals also don't absorb moisture because the chemical bonds of metals are extremely tight covalent bonds that are non-polar, and water, the polar, ionic-bonded molecule, can't break in between the neutral, tight covalent bonds in metals without extreme heat to break the bonds in the metal. Oxidation neutralizers cover the surface of metals though, which prevents rusting and other types of oxidation from occurring. Even covering metals with a coat of clear nail polish can prevent rusting, however oxidation neutralizers are built to last for a long time, and will outlive the nail polish. Still recommend using those types of products for longevity, but in terms of a quick fix, I wouldn't bother because there is often moisture left in the paint that doesn't get out and trapping moisture between paint and metal will undoubtedly cause oxidation of the metal.

  • Tad Ka
    Tad Ka 11 месяцев назад Alex Banning I watched a video (about this rust problem) made by people who do restorations on very expensive cars and they showed how rust does get into the metal beneath the surface. Even when you sand the rust down to shiny metal there is still rust deeper in the metal only you can't see with a naked eye. That's why they use chemicals to neutralise it.
  • Clare M
    Clare M 11 месяцев назад Hi Eric so i was trying to find videos about how i could remove rust, treat the area before i repainted and this vid came up... it is for the top inside lip of my freezer. I am planning to switch it off, let it dry out completely before i started. The rust is very bad. So i would do everything in this vid plus the oxidation neutraliser you mentioned to hopefully stop it from rusting again. Would you have any suggestions as to the type of paint i should use given its a freezer? It has to be so I can still wipe it down with a neutral cleaner...unfortunately a bleach cleaner was used hence the rust. Any other tips/suggestions would be most appreciated. I am a first time DIY person in Singapore but think i could do this. Certainly much less expensive then getting new freezer door which going by the supplier's price, i might as well buy a new freezer;) Thank you in advance. Best regards Clare

  • Jacques Poirier
    Jacques Poirier 2 года назад emphasis should be made to remove the rust before prime and finish best way to remove the rust is to sandblast when the equipment is available there is many ways to finish the job, I alway use the finishing putty after the epoxy primer application and before the application of the surfacer primer, this way, you always sand the same material and it is much easyer to make a smooth level surface.

I've been working on cars since I was 7 and I was a detailer at a massive dealership for a few years also so yeah I know how to clean and shine like a motherfucker. The point I was trying to make was that was a lot of highly detailed work to fix one small rust spot on a piece of shit car. That's a waste of time unless you just wanted to get some practice. No one cares that your door jam looks nice when your driving a f-150 from the 80's with a dogshit engine. Or a stupid ass Jetta with 250,000 miles. Or whatever that car was. It wasn't worth it.

    DDEENY 2 года назад (изменено) Right. I'm concerned about those pitted areas where the rust can't be fully reached with hand sanding and that the rust may recur there. I'd prefer to see the affected area soda-blasted but that's typically beyond the realm of most DIYers. Beyond that, rust converter is a next-best alternative. Otherwise, the repair is just fine especially considering that it's a door sill of limited visibility and not an exterior surface. It serves as a nice practice project for small rust and refinishing repairs.
