How to Repair Rust on Your Car Without Welding (No Special Tools Needed)

  • Published on: 28 October 2017
  • Rust removal and repair. Repairing rust on your car is something that should be done quickly to prevent it from spreading. It can be easily done without welding, by using strong but inexpensive body filler. You can even paint the car yourself. Rust repair is common at the wheel wells and rocker panels of cars and in this video I show the proper and most thorough way to remove and repair rust.

    Glass Filler:
    Gold Filler:
    Adhesive Remover:
    Spot Putty:
    Body Patch Mesh:
    Dust Mask:
    Sanding Block:

    Rust Converter:
    Rubberized Undercoating:
    Filler Primer:
    Color Matching Paint:

    Power Tools:
    Rust Remover Disc:

    There is one thing I wish you mentioned in the video, and that is what to expect after a spot paint like this. If you're not painting the entire body panel, you will most certainly see a difference between the old paint and new paint, since the old paint likely oxidized a little over time. The clear will be even worse, the new clear is going to show a very noticeable line that you cannot sand away. This is really for getting a "40 footer" down to a "10 footer" which for some people is perfectly fine. Like you said, a million times better than a giant rust spot. But, I would recommend for anyone looking to bring it back to near-factory look, paint the entire panel, or make clever use of the body lines to hide it.

    Oof this is not a good rust repair. So much rust still left between the panels. Only way to truly repair rust is cut and weld

    I did this and followed every step but I see harsh lines and it's a darker color even after I buffed and polished.... Ugh. I don't know what I did wrong. What do I need to do if I wanna restart? Just sand down to the primer again?

    Subbed a while ago, Thanks for the videos... I don't need car repair, my car needs some paint correction but, is in good shape besides that. I did pick up a really nice Webber grill that someone left outside, and the bottom panel is pretty rusted. This will work perfect for that and I should be able to get it looking great. The grill works beautiful and always wanted a Webber, I got a $1000 grill for $100, and with $75 in tools, I should be able to make it like new ! Thanks ! :)

    You sponsored by 3M or something? I was looking up what products to buy and I see the ones used in the video are Rustoleum and their logos are taped over, while your affiliate links are mainly 3M products instead. Seems sketchy.

    So this is well over a 100$ fix... Itd be insanely cheaper and easier to just get new panels at a pull apart & put them on.. in that case how would i get that back panel off? I'm trying to save this car from being a complete money pit & regretting buying it.
