How To Remove Car Rust Spots

The first you must do is sand away any visible rust from the body of the car.

Make certain to sand all the way down to the bare metal. Then, as opposed to doing the usual priming, color, clear, use an 'Etching Primer' first. Etching primers are specifically for bare metal. They stick to bare metal better than normal primers.

Don't skip this step or there's a strong possibility that the rust will reappear. After you've primed it, use body filler to raise any areas that have decayed. Then you can paint as you normally would (i.e. prime, color, clear). The painting the car is pretty easy. Especially if you know what you're doing. However, for most people it makes more sense to take it somewhere and have it painted for you. Why? Because you need some equipment to do it yourself. If you're not going to be doing it regularly, it would NOT make sense to buy it. However, if you do decide to invest in the equipment (and, actuatlly do some do-it-yourself auto painting) the most crucial auto body painting tips we can possibly give you are related to your health.

Painting your car can be very dangerous if you don't have an effective ventilation system. Most leading auto Collision shops as well as many of the smaller body shops invest lots of money to get state-of-the-art ventilations systems that move tons of air every minute. If you do decide to paint your own car, please make sure that you're taking the proper precautions. Don't shorten your life just to save a few hundred dollars. It's not worth it!
