I've got some rot spots

Men,

I've got a few rot spots, on my truck, enough that I think if I let em go the winter bad things will happen.

I'll get some pics and post them later.

My question is, what can "I" do to take care of them even if its just a temporary fix. I've very short on funds until plowing season is underway. then I won't have time to have the truck down.

I've got a few cans of POR15 on the shelf I could touch them up, but I don't want it to look like crap. I don't have a compressor any more it finally took a dump. so this will likely be a rattle can, or brush job.

The areas are in the fendr well lip area, and behind each tire. I was thinking about sanding them down a little, and masking them off just above the highest rust spot, and laying down a black stripe of POR15 from the wheel well to the rear bumper. Then brush some up in the fender lips, and in the drivers door near the kick pannel.

Is this a bad idea?

What would it cost to have this professionally done? all corners have the peeling paint and corrosion.

Maybe $ wise. If you follow the instructions for Por15 and buy the other products recommended: You basically apply a chemical rust remover called marine clean. That in itself if done correctly will remove rust. At that point you could use any automotive paint coating for protection instead of $30 per qt por 15. Sorry por15. I have done the math, wood varnish would do almost as well for less $. For the best look until it can be finished correctly: Use a color matching base coat after a chemical rust remover. Even in a preval sprayer or dabbed with a foam brush. About $9 for a half pint would be enough plus solvent if sprayed.

Thought i'd put up some photos of backyard chemical heavy rust removal. No wire brushing was done, just a dunk in a cut open soda bottle as a tank. Before, than @ 10 minutes and finished @ 20 minutes @ 80 degrees outside temp.

Ok well last night I did it. well half of it. still needs another coat.

I wire wheeled the rust off, used the marine clean, then the etching spray, and masked off the area, I brushed on a thin coat of POR14 base coat. I'll do another coat of POR15 UV resistant black. later.

I'll snap some before and after pics tonight after I get out of work. I still have the drivers side to do as the exhaust was in the way on the pass side and it too alot of fooling arround to sand the area.

Reason I went with the Black POR was because I had a few pints left over from a previous project. The local Paint shop wanted 80$ a pint for my color, and of course they don't even list my color code in any of the books. ANYWHERE?!?!? Island Blue Metalic SUCKS! they said they could match it, but I might have to do some blending and it might not be perfect. I was like no. I'd rather have it be obviously wrong than half azzed.

I will add before I post pics, that YES it does look a little redneck, but I think when its all done it will look a little mean if I do the steel wheels the same way.

Wow $80 a pint. Just got a pint of Dark Tourmaline metallic base in PPG's omni line for the $9. Fancy name for Green. Chemical I will pm to you. Not good for body work as it will run down inside the panel and cause problems if you cant get it flushed out.

well, its been a while I got a few photos,

Here are some rust shots, I don't have any pics of the rear before the paint, but trust me it was MUCH WORSE than the other spots. paint was peeling 2 inches up from the botton and from the wheel well, rear to the bumper.








Almost done with the rear, needs a top coat.
