treating this rust


Recommended Posts

Just bought a nice little 6x10 covered trailer and it's got more rust on it than I'd like to see, but I think it's treatable.  I could do some sand blasting on it if that's what's needed.  Open to your advice about getting the rust off and coating with some kind of protectant.  I like the look of the original metal so I'm hoping I can get away with just blasting.  The trailer was made in 2002 so it's taken a while to grow the rust.  I probably won't have the trailer more than a few years so I'm not wanting to fix this rust to last a lifetime or anything.


Thanks ahead.

Lots of people use those rust conversion coatings.


My preference is instead to sand away the rust (or blast in your case), then paint w/ Rustoleum Professional paint. I would use their primer, then their top color paint.


I'd do the same.  It should last long enough for your needs, subject of course to wear and tear from usage.
