Removing Rust?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I want to clean the rust that has formed on the rear axle of my car, i wanted to ask the people here whether they have done this and if so, what was the best method in doing so?

Also, has anyone tried sandblasting?

To sand blast suspension components you'd need to remove the bits have them sand blasted back to bare metal then have them resprayed in a rust resistant primer and then some sort of protective hardened over coat.

What sort of rust you trying to remove - surface rust?

Finding the source of the problem is a good step. Then Sand off all the
loose flaky rust.Clean & degrease with a water based cleaner (like
simple green) that'll rinse w/o residue. Then Treat it w/ a metal prep
like Rustblast for good paint adhesion. Apply 2-3 thin coats of
Rustseal. It loves to adhere to rust. It's formula allows it to seep
deep into the metal pores and block out moisture & oxygen.RustSeal
by KBS Coatings
is much like por15 but has advanced formulation and is less expensive.
Some advantages to RustSeal: better adhesion, better pigment quality
& sheens, faster cure times, improved UV performance, and sands w/o
gumming up. Rustseal is self-leveling so brush marks flow out. Topcoat
with your automotive paint.
