Thread: Rust Removal

    Default Rust Removal

    Hi there, I will be purchasing a 79 Scout II in about 4-5 days. Unfortunately it has been exposed to about 30 years of Canadian Winter. So my question is, what is the cheapest way to remove rust from the scout?

    Cut it out and weld in new metal. Plain and simple.

    Agreed. New metal is the way to go, because with Scouts, if you use body filler, it'll only rust out more and in 3-4 years you'll be right back where you started. There's plenty of companies that sell full replacement panels. I prefer Super Scout Specialists. They've always taken good care of me.

    Yep I thinking the same thing. Just cut it out and replace. Simple enough. Any ways of preventing rust? Thanks for the help

    depends on the area you are trying to prevent it at. If on exterior panels, spend the money on Por 15 and then have it painted. If on the interior, a good heavy primer and then bedline the whole inside.

    Make sure you prep everything right before you do anything too. Even the best rust preventer isn't worth anything if you have grease on the surface before you paint it. Learned that one the hard way.
