Rust removal and repair. Repairing rust on your car is something that should be done quickly to prevent it from spreading. It can be easily done without welding, by using strong but inexpensive body filler. You can even paint the car yourself. Rust repair is common at the wheel wells and rocker panels of cars and in this video I show the proper and most thorough way to remove and repair rust.

  • I have many of these bubble rust patches on my Nissan 4x4. Problem is some are on the side of the panel just before the roof. So I cannot get to the back of them without removing all the liners, etc inside the vehicle. Any suggestions? Awesome video - it should not take me more than 2 months to repaid all the damage to my Nissan..... also it is a dull mat sort of colour like your dream 4x4. How do I match that?

  • I do a lot of mechanical work myself, have for many years. Body work, yeah not so much! Your video is the first one I watched to get an idea on how I should do it. I have to say I really enjoyed watching it. And I will not be watching another. Your presentation was spot on! So many videos it's like, oh what's that, oh ok. And oh I forgot, I should have done this or some other junk. It's like they have no idea what they're doing so why would I want their advice? But, yours was absolutely flawless, wish I had more thumbs but as I only have two, you have them both 👍👍. Terrific job!

    • yes, sand it again, until you can't see imperfection thru the primer, any inperfection will be saw in paint.

  • You've inspired me to take on the rust on my 2007 Chevy Silverado come spring time when it's warm enough to paint. But @ChrisFix should I hit all the spots at once or just do one rust spot at a time? None of them are bad enough that they are rusting through, it's just small spots where paint got chipped or whatever.

I'm doing a re-repair of a spot the local shop did 11 months ago, and I'm doing it myself. Thanks for the refresher. in my days we did not have primer filler like they do now. Good job Chris

  • This repair will last maybe 1 year before the rust comes thru again, best practise is to cut if of and replase it with new metal, even tho the initial cost will be higher but in the long run its much cheaper.
