question on rust bullet
#1
I have been using Rust Bullet on my carand so far it is a great product however I was wondering if anyone is putting anything down before the rust bullet. What i mean is i have wire wheeled the rust in my trunk and inner lower quarters but want to know if i should use some kind of converter then coat with rust bullet. What have you guys done?

Since Qcode351mach was the one who introduced us to Rust Bullet, I'm thinking everybody's expecting him to comment.

My experience with it thus far (on his advice), is that you can apply it directly to clean metal. As with any other product, you're going to want to ensure the entire surface is clean and free of rust before using it.

As for using some kind of rust converter or encapsulator, I think it would be doable - but just like any other product, eventually it's surface will compromise and allow rust to continue forming if the rust isn't completely eradicated.

It's a GREAT product - one of the very best, I'd say... but I believe that even it has limits of what it can do.

Put nothing down..Just d.a. with 80 grit...be careful with wire wheeling since it can actually polish the metal which =poor adhesion

I have used their metal blast before the rust bullet it seems to work pretty good, its really an metal etch product. It is not a critical step and I don't think there is any hugh benefit. Q turned me onto the rust bullet and Im glad Im using it. I had a couple small issues with the metal blast not wiping off real well when I sprayed my Inner fender/clip area. Like I said Its not required and really not that critical to use it.

heres the spec sheet on it if your interested

You will be fine just applying it over clean sanded metal as Q has stated earlier. I've sprayed rust bullet out of a cheap harbor freight gun and brushed the rust bullet on and to be real honest I prefer to brush it on it makes clean up a whole lot easier, just throw the foam brush away. I just thought I would chime in on my experience with Metal Blast just for your Infomation, Q would be the one to defer to on the rust bullet.
