Rust Problem Advice

My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has some rusting bolts and spots under the trunk area. It is only surface rust but i want to stop it before it gets worse. Any tips how to stop it? Maybe paint it or plastidip?

Re: Rust Problem Advice

Yes, wire wheel on a drill all the spots. Then wash underside, paint with eastwoods rust converter on worst spots. Then apply 1 coat Eastwoods Rust Encapsulator and topcoat with Epoxy chasis Black. Might also want to apply their brushable seam sealer on all the places the sheet metal overlaps at the seams.


I do this when the cars are brand new or 1st day I get them if used, have to be proactive in my area because they pour the liquid calcium on the roads prestorm and it will eat the underside of the car because the OEM do such a poor job underneath.


Also you may want to buy some Eureka FLuid film and flood the lower sections of the doors, hatch, rockers (pull all the plugs in the thresholds and under neath and spray in. I also removed the rear 1/4 trim panels and flooded the areas around the rear wheel wells and pockets in lower sections behind the rear bumper.

Re: Rust Problem Advice

I used POR15 rust coatings on my 1996 XJ when it was about like this year's ago. It still had to be redone a few years later. I recoated with Rust Bullet, and would use it again. But I drove gravel roads and tortured it with the rock salt on Nebraska roads every winter. 20 years later, minor rust spots underneath and no visible body rust. Best looking '96 everyday driver in Omaha. Almost 300,000 miles.

POR15 and Rust Bullet are only available online. Google and enjoy!

You can buy a needle scaler at Harbor Freight Tools and use it in place of sand blasting. Works so much better and easier if you have access to a decent compressor. Then use a rotary wire brush. Saves time and gets more bad stuff out of the way.

This is all slot of work, but rust gets all of them eventually, this slows the process a lot!
