Years ago the bottom of the rear window channel disintegrated with rust. I removed the rusty metal and rebuilt it with fiberglass. The problem now comes in from the bottom of the window channel going down about 4 inches. This area is vinyl covered and the metal underneath is heavily pitted and has many holes. For striping I typically use a 4" wire wheel on a side grinder, a D/A with some rough grit, and then a Dremel in the pitted areas with a cut off blade (trying to scale but not remove the metal). I've used epoxy primer in the past but honestly I didn't think much of it, probably a mistake from what I'm hearing. I'll give it another shot, along with Ospho. This is a tuff area because of the vinyl keeping moisture against the finish. Thanks for the replies, Iíll post some pictures.
