Rust?

Need good advice,i tore my 1976 gmc pickup down to the frame,to restore it.The frame was pretty rusty to start with but in good shape,so i began to remove the paint with paint remover to get dowm to the bare metal,i used rust remover from the East Wood,co. along with metal wash from the east wood,co.And then i used something called corrolis also from the east wood,co.The frame has been out side atleast one winter with just the truck cab sitting on it,there seem's to be one or two place's were rust keep's popping up on the a-frame to whare what ever i apply to it,it wont stick in those two or three spot's.I didnot sandblast it because i dont know how to,and it's a little beond my budgit. (please advise)

I've found that rust will just keep popping up in seams and cracks. I've had some success by basicly filling the gaps and folds with a rust killer that drys into a black plastic type substance and then painting the area as soon as the can recomends with an anticrossive primer. If stuffs not sticking you might need to clean the area again with perhaps with some thinners, it has to absolutly clean. sand blasters are easy just point and shoot with a good pair of goggles on. If you don't allready have a compresser then it's going to cost a bit to set up otherwise the attachment shouldnt cost much. have you thought about getting one on hire?

Well your all set then! Sand blasters are great but I hear bad things about using them on bodywork (warping etc) so keep it on the frame. I don't know if you can, but I used some fine sand I picked up from the beach for the media. I just cleaned it with plenty of fresh water and dried it throughly. Also put down a sheet or something to catch the over spray cause you can recycle the sand a couple of times. remember to blow away all the sand in the cracks before to paint. Hell I can't think of anything else you need to know about sand blasting. Go for it.
