get the wire brush that you can attatch to your drill , this schould take most of it off , or use a sander. I like to use the POR system to seal the metal , but you can also use some rustoleum and then undercoating.

Sand blasting is the best way to eliminate rust. then use POR 15, or corrless from Eastwood.

Rustoleam and undercoating is like fertilizer on plants,it`s wasted time and money. HTH

Good Luck
Troy,

Hey troy , 1st and formost , make sure you know just how much rust you have on your frame. I like stabbing it with a screwdriver to see it starts to come apart.

Grey,
First and foremost,I wouldn`t have to gouge on that frame, it`s junk.

I`ve seen enough frames to know when they need replaced. And I never use a wire brush. They pull good shiny metal over the rust Pitts, and it comes right back. I would never patch a frame, there are two many in the salvage yards, and they are easy to change. Even unibody frames can be replaced.

Troy
