Floor pan surface rust
#1
Is it a bad idea to take a wire wheel to the floor pans to get rid of the rust? Or should the floor pans be okay? Also, I have some minor surface rust on the interior of the roof and more rust inside the support that frames out the top of the windshield, what's the best way to get rid of that?

Thanks guys!

Steve

Personally, I'd try to eliminate as much as I can with wire brush, wire wheel, etc. Then I'd coat it with Rust Bullet or epoxy primer to seal out any future rust.

Ditto ! except if you use epoxy primer it has to be to bare metal no trace's of rust at all & the epoxy has to be sprayed..Rust bullet with a foam roller It's the only way to fly !

Thanks guys, that's what I was thinking but didn't know if the wire wheel would be too aggressive or not.

If iis just surface rust a wire wheel won't hurt anything. If there ar any pin holes or paper thin spots the wire wheel will make them very apparent. Thats no a bad thing though as you can repair those spots then go with the POR or rust bullet.
