Here is a pic of my rear bumper

Saving the vert 0330092148

Glad I never got rear ended.

Saving the vert 0330092052

threw a coat of rust converter on them along with the underbody. Fortunately I didn't have to do the whole underbody; the previous owner got it undercoated but whoever did it missed a large chunk of the rear, most likely because it would have caused them to drop the exhaust; which was a PITA. I would have just hacked off the hangers like I did the stockers, but this exhaust it gonna stay for a while.

Another coat tomorrow along with some sanding and rust converting of the fenders and I'm almost to bondo!

The frame rails are great; was a huge seller. As I said, the previous owner did get the underbody coated, but most likely never had it washed.

You guys should be using "rust bullet" its not cheap but kicks major ass. Hard as freaking nails when its done. Have you considered having the back media blasted? It would not be too terribly expensive.

I'm using

http://www.thewinningfinish.com/plastikote/indust/template.jsp?searchcode=AMP&product=RustConverter

in the liquid brush on form and some other stuff in spray form that I don't feel like going to the garage to see the label for.

What's media blasted?

Sandblasting or soda blasting.

Soda blasting kicks ass because it can be washed away with water. There are guys in chicago that travel in trucks and will do it on site. Does an amazing job.

There is also an attachment for gas power washers to make them wet sandblasters. Media blasting will get into the spots you cannot reach easily or at all.

X2 on media blasting.

if your gonna do it, you might as do it right the first time.

check like Farm N Fleet / Tractor supply companies they sometimes offer media blasting stuff (i know the delavan TSC does)

i'd really like to do that to Liz's coupe next winter.

yeah.. all the bondo will do is let it rust from the inside out then..

if you want to get rid of cancer, you need to remove it.

rust converter will NOT fix that

and bondo is NOT structural. you cant just lay bondo over a hole. it will just crack out. you need to cut that metal out and weld in new sheets. bondo is just a finisher...
