    Default Treating rust and stopping it spreading?

    Hey everyone.

    When I was giving the car a good clean the other day I noticed a faint line of rust starting to appear around the passenger side wheel arch at the back. There's a single bubble under the paint too. Is there anything I can treat it with to stop it spreading? I can't afford a respray but the car was apparently resprayed before I got it. Maybe see if it's guarenteed. Got it in Stoke On Trent though - 50 miles away!

    Cheers.

    the art is removing as much as is contaminated and killing the rot dead Kurust is brilliant but the over painting is even more critical to prevent air and moisture penetrating again.

    Because the line of rust (apart from the bubble) is only a couple of mm wide, I'll attack it with the Kurust then go over it with a touch up pen. It's not that easy to see but it's going to bug the hell out of me knowing it's there. Any ideas on what to do with the bubble?

    Mask around it and rub it down to fresh metal if possible and then use the Kurust to kill the surface before paint.

    I can appreciate your feelings as I loath with a passion any chip's dings or rust bubbles on my car's too

    Cheers for that. There's a few chips in it unfortunately, at least the car is silver though so they don't show too much.
