This Rustbusters process is the real deal. I saw it at a swap meet. This is a machine that can actually convert wire to sprayable form thus rebuilding rusted metal panels. Its a machine that any restorer cannot live without. There are shops all across the country doing this type of work or if you have an extra $40,000 to invest in a killer hobby you can buy the machine yourself.

Check out <a href="http://www.rustbustersllc.com" target="_blank">www.rustbustersllc.com</a> and connected websites. I was totally impressed as the rebuilt surface is coated in galvanize metal and remains rust free. Works on steel,copper,brass,aluminum and stainless steel by just changing the wire. I wish I knew about this process when I was rebuilding my '34 Roadster. I will definately use it on my 65 GTO.

Signed, MD

This is plasma spray welding? Been around for years...eons maybe? I have never seen it advertised to repair rust before?

Sure sounds like plasma spraying. About a decade ago, plasma sprayed aluminum as a header coating was the hot setup then ceramic/metallic came out and made the plasma obsolete.
