As above, what works best on experience. Been using Jenolite liquid but its not as effective as I'd like and its pi##ing me off.  

Any suggestions.

i don't like any of them, shot blast and or cut out the cancer IMO the only way.

Its just for the small repairs where its not benificial/cost effective to rip out an arch for a rust blister. Larger rot always gets replaced with fresh steel, that is the only 100% way to get rid. Also, surface rust doesn't always need the panel replacing if its only light. Usually gets cut back with grinder cup but the "infection" is still there.

Anyone tried Dinitrol?

I`ve been using Vactan on both my fiesta and escort for small bits of surface rust.

Ive used ferrozinc. you have to get the metal shiny - this just stops it coming back which i think is what you want.

In short if you can not sand the rust off back to proper metal or there is a hole it needs to be cut out & replaced with fresh steel.
Don't matter if 50p size or a whole wing.

Just not worth the risk of it coming back.

But saying that if you can not weld then do what your budget allows.

yep.

Only way IMO is small shot blasting gun for tiny blisters then mig up.

Bigger stuff needs cuting right back and repair patches fabricating.

The Jenolite I've got is a liquid but it comes in gel form too. Just repaired 2 rear wheel arches on a mates Puma. All went well but has now reacted. you'd swear that I'd wiped it dowm with water prior to spraying. Seriously, seriously pi**ed me off. Now got to do it all over again.

Will give you a ring later mate, Cheers

Mik.
