Repairing Rust Spots on Car

Can you remove or cover up rust from a car's wheel-well? I have an older car that has begun to rust just above one of the tires on the body of the car. I would love to hear any tips.

Go to your local auto parts store and ask for some Naval Jelly. You follow the directions on the bottle, but I think you put/paint the stuff on with the brush that is included in the bottle; it not only stops to rust but also removes it. Good Luck!

I learned this working for an auto body shop years ago. Let us know how you come out!

In short... Rust is cancer to a car and must be destroyed! Not covered up, or even encapsulated, though this can bide time it will be back with a vengeance! Get rid of it by grinding to bare metal or if necessary cut away enough metal from the body and replace it.

Then use a water proof filler to reshape the work and finish with putty sanding smooth with 60-240 grit sand paper. Use finishing putty (which is only thick primer paint in a tube) and sand 400 grit paint and Clear Coat (important).
