What are peoples preferences then? I am sick of looking and reading mixed reviews all round so have no idea where to go.

Bilt hammer seems well liked, jenolite no so much.Flag rust converter is very cheap and seems ok review wise. So many options and they are all similar so do you go for a pricey one or just buy the cheaper on the premise they are all similar and the result is all down to your prep.

I actually have a large por 15 kit but i dont like the way you have to wash it with water on the bare metal first. Thus why i am seeking a different brand and ill only use it on the bumpers etc.

Cheers
Mick

Slap the worst off with hammer and chisel, then a sand blast the area, a quick rub with abrasive paper to remove the heigh spots, phosphoric acid (like genolite), zinc primer, several coats of finish paint, then wax.

Basically:
kill all rust crystals, have no peaks sticking through the paint, electrically insulate the steel with paint.

You also need to stop rust on the inside, as rust is like a battery and it weakens the other side of the sheet causing rust there.

Sounds mad Very Happy
Trust me, it’s good science and from experience.

You shouldn’t need an etch primer because the surface is rough, but do use it on clean shiny metal.
