Thanks MikeMYJ , I appreciate your message, Ill try to get this fixed asap

mike_the_engineer You could always just swap out the door. Takes about 60 seconds.
12-18-2010 06:07 PM
steam Body shop time...especially if you live in place with snow and salt. Trust me it will get bigger and deeper the longer you wait. If it's a door panel youre in luck...less costly!
12-18-2010 04:18 PM
Petey_Mack if its new take it back to the dealer

ESP When the person opened their door into your new Jeep, the dent broke through the primer and exposed a small bit of bare metal. Throw in one rain drop and bingo..
12-18-2010 04:04 PM
mike_the_engineer Yeah, bare steel will oxidize within seconds of getting wet.
12-18-2010 03:48 PM
repoman100 Thanks daggo and Mike, I just found it surprising that rust already appeared its brand new ! I guess ill have the work done properly to avoid the rust from spreading i thought because the rust was so thin that the touch up paint would have done the job ...

You can't. Rust is like cancer. It will ALWAYS spread. Hitting it with touch up paint doesn't fix anything because it will still continue to rust under the paint. In order to fix it, you have to remove ALL of the rust... every single tiny microscopic bit.

If it's just a door ding with a very thin coating of rust, you can probably get away with using a rust converter... something like Rustoleum Rust Reformer. It will chemically convert the rust into what is effectively a primer. THEN you can hit it with touch up paint.

No one forces you to read the post, if you dont mind rust on your jeep thats your thing, I do. Instead of wasting your time replying useless comments on my post maybe you should consider being helpfull to other questions being asked.

Have yourself a nice rusty Jeep lol

ESP Just hit the other side and make a dent there too so your Jeep will feel balanced. I don't really know about the dent/rust though as I've just buffed out trail rash on mine no problem. Haven't had any dent yet.

sheetsd66 1. Sell it to ESP123 for $19.95 before you tear anything else up! Then I'll buy it from him and he can double his money, or....
2. Carefully remove the rust and then hit it with some touch-up paint. If the dent really bothers you take it to the body shop and have them fix it for you or....
3. Put the mud and snow back on it and stay away from the car wash.

Dent with surface rust

After the wash I also noticed a dent with surface rust on the side probably from someone opening his door and hitting my jeep (bastard). What should i do ? Bodyshop?
Thanks
