Re: Bed Rusting Again!!!
I have a little rust that has pushed apart the two pieces of metal in the fender well. I see the spot welds and in a couple of small spots some rust developed and pushed the two peices apart. Last year I used a fiberglass sanding pen and brush out the rust and brushed in some touch up paint. It seemed to have worked. But, I notice that i have a spot like it on the other side. There is no visible rust or bubling anywhere else on wheel wells. My thought was to clean out these small spots, brush in paint and then coat them with fluid film. I have the hose attachment for the can of fluid film and I am wondering if I can put the hose into the two holes that are standard in the inner fender liner. Those sprays in a shower like manner so that it will drench the area in every direction. I am thinking that this will soak the whole area with fluid film.
I had seen a video for fluid film and they used this hose to get in between body panels. I am not sure it will work, but I want to get this before it goes any further. I know cutting out the fender liner would be the only way to guarantee, but it seems extreme for the tiny little separation in the metal that I have in the seam. I just don't want it to get worse. I don't drive in the salt. What do you think about running the fluid film hose in there? Also, I wonder if I can put an inspection camera in there. They did that in the fluid film video as well. I could look before and after and see if I am actually soaking that area.
