Best rust fixer

what is the best stuff out there to cure rust and stop it?
I was gonna try por15, but wouldn't mind more suggestions. I'm able to wire wheel the crap out the areas, but u can tell it's still in the metal. What have ya'll used? thanks

any where that was really bad I cut out and patched a panel in, but for example under the rear package tray has some rust and I just wanna protect if from coming back.

Best for me is to get all the rust off or out and then 2 wet coats of epoxy primer such as SPI..gotta be careful as some of the snake oil stuff reacts with auto paint materials...Lot of controversy on this subject..

I can't personally speak for the product ( I have the luxury of working with completely stripped and blasted cars ) but a lot fo people claim good results from Ospho. It is a lquid, brush or spray on product that chemically converts the rust and then after proper preparation, it can be primed over. If you decide to use it, be sure to check with the manufacture of the primer of your choice for proper preparation before coating it with primer. I also highly recommend SPI products, and if you choose to go with them, Barry will give you the step by step of the prep work for a life long repair

You may wanna read up on this thread and then do a search for "Ospho" in the forum search. there are plenty more on here explaining and demonstrating the process and results.

DBM, I wasn't trying to throw you in the fire by linking to your thread. It was the first and most informative one I could find I agree that replacement is the absolute solution, but I also noted wuite a few good things in your thread that may be helpful for those needing to go a different route.

Rust Mort, POR15, not necessarily in that order. Of course if you can, get it sandblasted and then 2 coats of epoxy and you're good to go.

I picked up some jelly rust repair stuff that you brush on. After that I was able to wash it off, and put some zero-rust on the areas. I have to admit Zero-rust when put on thick really seems to be durable. Guess only time will tell.

The most effective way to stop rust is to deprive it of oxygen and moisture. In a rear window area or any other area where rust is reoccurring problem is to completely remove the rust using a wire wheel or your blaster and then follow it up with a good acid wash metal prep. Then put two coats of either rust bullet or master coat silver Prime it with your epoxy and then paint it.
