So, other than paint matching, and redoing everything, Im not sure what the best option would be. I am planning on doing some small paint jobs and fix ups all over my jeep when spring finally breaks, and take care of the rust spots I have. I have them on the pieces by my windshield frame and my door hinges are the most notable. I am just gona take those off, do some good sanding and prep work, and either paint black or bedline black with spray on bedliner. Now, the real problem comes. I have two more spots. on passenger side I am starting to get some tiny rust bubbles come through the fender. not the flare but the actual fender right almost up against the hood. not noticable hardly at all now, but there. what can I do to stop them from getting worse?
and heres the killer.... on my drivers side. the little crease or line that runs from the bottom corner of the tub to the top where the back and side come together, right infront of the license plate down to the bottom is a crack in the paint. I assume the PO had backed into something just hard enough to crack and separate the paint. I now have about a 1by1 inch rustyish spot there and rust forming up the crack in the paint. I do no want to let this get worse. I considered spraying something to eat the rust up some, then use clear coat over it to protect, but Im not sure. its not a piece I can take of and repaint easily obviously... so Im not sure what to do. and the paint is chipped away at the bottom. I can get a picture tomorrow if need. but basically whats the best option for me short of getting it repainted professionally? I dont want to do that.
