I've been lurking around for awhile now and figured it was time I jump in. This board has helped me tremendously over the past year.

As per my post, 400$ or bones to some It was like that when I bought it last summer (the rust) but I made a bad assumption it was only surface so in my mind I thought I could fix it. During the winter, I had a closer look as it appeared to be getting bigger and yep when a finger can push thru, thats where my job would end and the bodyman's begins. I am no favorite to bondo crap, so the welding was a need to get this done right. Only abit peeved that the bodyman used the color code and didn't go with matching faded paint. Barely noticeable so I hope it will fade ok, if not meh! lol

RevCo666 A few more shots of the passenger side.

RevCo666 I recently had some major rust on the metal fenders. Normally if it was surface rust only, I would clean off all of the rust, acetone, prime, paint and clear coat but because my situation was abit more severe I chose to have a local bodyman do the work as welding was involved and I don't have all the right tools. Here's some before and after shots of the driver side. (also used rock guard underneath to give it abit more protection.)

PS it cost me 400 bones for both sides.

It wont be cheap but it wont be ungodly expensive.

TJ-GTR Rust in that area comes from behind the panel. The rust on the surface is the result of what's happening underneath or on the backside of that panel. Sanding and repainting only delays the same process from happening again. The only way to stop it, is to remove the metal and replace it. I know that's not the popular answer but, it comes from experience. Good Luck!
05-03-2013 01:34 PM
bato Thanks. Do you think just sanding it by hand with some rough sandpaper will do it?

Will stick if u sand the paint.

Rock Kicker Good info. I've got the same prob on my 03 under the license plate. I think I'm going to take a die grinder to it, follow the por 15 advice, and throw on corner guards.

Bato, not sure how reliable my source is cuz I can't remember where I heard it, but someone said that por 15 is great with rust but wont attach to bare metal or paint. I don't know from personal experience, but just thought I'd share. If you find out before me, let me know...
