View Full Version : Inside the rear quarter panels.

If you pull off the inner rear quarter panel trim and look down in the exposed area below the window mechanism it is pretty rusty down in there.
Anyone figured out a way to nuetralize that rust and paint or coat that area somehow?
I thought maybe you might be able to pour something in there to coat it, and then just let it drain out the weep hole or poke a bigger hole. Any thoughts???

If you can try to valcum all debree out then use a product called POR15
When you paint rusty metal with POR15 it seals the rust so no air can get to it, therefore stopping the rust, as they say forever.
Hope this helps
Make sure to wear mask and gloves when you apply por15 because it does not wash off your hands.

My 57 is the same way. Do we use a long brush or is there a spray that can reach those hard to get places ?
Do we make new inspection plates or holes
to hit those areas? Its a bummer knowing that back isn't ptotected.

Ok, now you guy's are gonna think I'm crazy. This is what I'm building to help out with the tight or impossible area's for rust prevention. It work's on the siphon idea so ANY type of material you want to spray will need to be thinned a bit. It uses a blow gun end like we use to blow away dirt, water, etc. The wand attachment could be made out of brake line or anything small enough to do the tight work. The end is capped so the material can be forced out the holes drilled into the sides but another end could be made with a hole in it for straight on spraying.

Guys i painted that area with POR-15 using a foam brush. If you work slow and patiently you can reach the biggest majority of it through the access panels in the back seat quarter area.

Did you make a drain hole under that area kinda like the ones in the doors for future draining? Mine has no hole there now and I was wondering about that.
I was cleaning the garage this weekend (moving stuff around basically) and I saw this can of POR-15 gas tank sealer. I had redone my gas tank inside and out, but I forgot about that stuff. You pour it in and then after while pour it back out. Maybe that stuff would work too. Sort of brush, pour, slosh it in there and then let it run out a hole in the bottom.

We are thining of using lanoguard 3000 to protect inside the door panels etc... and using POR15 for underneath the car.
