Anybody have the rust problem on the inner part of the door frame?
the door frames on my 2000 tj, the paint is bubbling up.. it appears there is rust there, but the paint is bubbling up in 3 or four spots. The rest of the jeep is painted nicely..
I am thinking of taking some of this advice this summer and giving it a go.

Good as New
After it's painted, buff it with some 3M polishing compound... comes in a black bottle, check with paint shops. That will take down any orange peel or whatever. Also, hit it with tack cloth before painting. Use a circular or orbital 3500 rpm buffer, or low speed drill attachment. Keep the buffer moving when you do this and do not use a high speed body grinder.
This and a foam pad should do it. Buy Titan Products 6" Random Orbital Buffer/Polisher 22606 at Advance Auto Parts

Has cheaper factory match paint in larger spray cans, as well as a great clear coat.
I have used them for my last 2 Wranglers and they match perfectly

|KneesCollapsing||If I get to the painting stage and I use the Mopar factory touch up paint, what do I use for a clear coat?|

|GoldenSahara00||just for reference I saw the other day quadratec sells brush and spray can factory colors for like 10 or 11 bucks. so I am hoping I can get my color and it will actually match. ill let you know how it goes. got a spot on the rear quarter to do. but I plan to follow steps exactly as explained above thats a great walk through Mr mac!|

Remove all of the rust out to about two inches or so from the affected area. A dual action (D/A) sander with 80 grit or a cup brush on an angle grinder (Harbor Freight makes a cheap angle grinder [$15] and cup brush [$3]) will take care of that in a hurry.
Then sand (220 grit) to feather the edges around the repair area.
You must then treat the metal with a rust inhibitor to keep it from returning. I personally like Boeshield (available at Sears) for this but be careful and wear chemical resistant gloves. Most rust inhibitors will also eat paint, so...
Next, mask off the areas you don't want paint on and then prime the area with a good quality primer. Sand with 220 again to smooth make sure any pitting was filled and then shoot again.
Once it is thoroughly dry you can shoot it with your color. Dupli-Color makes a pretty good product. It can take a few light coats to build up to where it needs to be. Please let the paint dry completely before re-spraying!
Wet sand starting with 220 wet/dry paper if you need to remove any orange peel or other imperfections.
If you had clear coat then shoot it once or twice and wet sand if needed as before.
After a few days wax it and if you did it right you may never know there was a repair!

Touch up paint. primer if you don't care about appearances. Clear nail polish if its strictly rust prevention.
In any case, get rid of ALL the rust before you cover it...

How To Fix Surface Rust
What's up everyone? I am looking for some guidance on how to fix some small surface rust. There a a few rock chips that have begun to rust slightly on my hood and on my grill. I figured it would be easiest to fix it now before the progress into a bigger problem. Are there any body guys or anyone out there who can recommend the best way to fix them? Thanks.
