Rust

hey guys,

I am nearly in tears at the moment. Have been busy with work so i havent had time to do any work on my XR. Today i decided to wash and polish her to make me feel better about not doing any work. Long story short, she had a respray from metal 11 months ago and now as some large areas of rust coming through, some has already bubbled the paint and some are just little specs in patches. Am i ****ed is there anything to do or should i SELL SELL SELL. This has happened so quick its not funny. ill post pics later so we can all cry together.

Re: Rust

Take it out back and shoot it, was it professionally spraypainted?

Re: Rust

Firstly, sorry to hear your debacle. The joys of owning an old car eh?

If the metal wasn't properly prepared rust will come back, or if it wasnt cut out, just covered over, it'll re-appear. Or the panel beater may have missed a patch just starting (doubt it as they would have had to have seen it when giving it the respray)...

Not much you can do, just cut it out and weld more metal back in

Re: Rust

Re: Rust

re-spray unfortunately... or take it back to him and see what he says..

dont accuse him of anything, just say "hey, i was wondering what you think i should do about the rust in my car thats appeared since you resprayed it 12 months ago"

Re: Rust

rust is metal deteriorating... blisters are air pockets beneath paint

Re: Rust

well there are two types pf areas that i can see. 1 - is like little specs of sand underneath the paint and the 2nd is bubbling, which i thought was way to early to happen especially in the areas that they are in. The two bubbles are at the top of the quater and front doors. No major rust in that area before.
