Sand it down apply a rust removing chemical then sand again, Prime Paint Good to GO!

Well that's pretty basic.... Anybody got anything more in depth?


depends where the rust is, and if its in a structural location, which it may in a unibody.. .basically cut the rust out and weld in new metal then finish grinding and body work, not an easy or cheap thing to do
