RUST is the devil

OK, well I started working some corrosion issues under my jeep. After being stationed in Maryland the lovely winter salted roads did a doosy on my 97. So after much procrastination I have began the painstaking process of removing the crap. Lots of grinding and wire brushes at this point.

Blah Blah Blah... After some online investigating I have heard about some rust removal products. I know of such products as POR 15, Eastwoods rust encapsulators, etc. I am trying to do this correctly but understand I really am not looking for a frame off resto. I want to remove as much as I can, and contain the rest.

Has anyone used the any rust converters and encapsulators? Any tips and advice?

i did a lot of research while i'm doin mine frame off. i went with a product called rust shield, by a company called SEM. this stuff worked great, and you can get a catalyst that makes it more resistant to acids, fluids, and gas. i recommend it, this stuff was for real, my fingers were almost glued together when i was done.

i looked into por15, acid dips, and all. this stuff ran me $90/gallon with the catalyst, which is a lot cheaper than the others, and it worked great.

you can look toward the end of my thread here to see some of it:

oh yeah, i brushed it on, and thats the way i'd suggest doing it, and i would do it no a vehicle that is still together. do the best you can in prep, but it will work no matter what

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
