Rust mitigation

Recommended Posts

Wow Unless I missed something this is a dead group.

I am surprised that a New England group doesn't have a long string discussing how to fix rust on their truck.

I lost a 2003 Silverado extended cab Z71 just a few days ago due to excessive rust.

We redid the rocker panels, cab corners, and rear wheel arches a few years ago but it came back on the arches so I gave up.

 

I got a 2013 Silverado without body rust but it has a little on the frame at the back by the trailer hitch.

I am looking at methods to protect it that are simple and wonder what experience others have.

 

There seem to be two approaches after removing the loose stuff. 

One in to use a rust reformer and the other is a primer that will go over rust.

Rustoleum  seems to be a popular alternative with either a primer or reformer but Por-15 has been used for may years.

 What experience do you have?

I've been thinking of doing a full bed removal and then a product called KBS. My 01 is okay but needs to be taken care of.
