My current truck is a ’93 and I live in the Rust Belt, so the body’s getting rough. Hopefully I’ll be able to spend some time cleaning things up and installing patch panels to get things looking a bit better, but other emergencies keep popping their heads up, so for now I’m keeping up on my tetanus shots and hoping for the best. This new aerosol version of Eastwood’s Rust Converter looks like it might work to my benefit.
Eastwood’s Rust Converter functions as a sealant — with just a few minutes of running around with a spray can, it’ll change the rust on your vehicle into a protective coating. Being an aerosol, it sprays out thin, unlike the version in the regular cans, and I think the lower viscosity should allow it to penetrate better.
A can should cover about ten to twelve square feet; Eastwood recommends a light coat and then a heavier coat after the first coat dries. Then just spray on some paint.
The aerosol can of Rust Converter sells for about $20.
