I have always used rust remedy when treating surface rust on my vehicles but have never been 100% satisfied with the results. I was wondering if anyone on here has experience of a treatment they were happy with and would recommend?

I've always used Jenolite's products especially in my car rally years.

Ive used Bilt Hamber Deox-C with good results before. Comes in a Gel or as salts so you can make a bath.

does it make you smell nice after you come out of the bath after a winter trail layup and feeling a bit rusty will be nice to hit the trails in the zone and smelling nice too.

I tried that loctite rust remedy recently and wasnt too impressed, I always used Kurust in the past and will go back to it, had good results with that stuff

I've ordered some Jenolite and will let people know how it works.

A lot of these products continue to react long after application and bubble paint that has been applied over them.

Best solution....remove as much rust as you can mechanically and apply one of the 'rinse off' products on what's left.

This is for the gutter of my 72 VW camper and I have opted for the barrier type to provide longer lasting protection. It is supposedly able to be painted directly onto.

Bilt Hamber do (did?) an awesome zinc based primer. For the size of the tin it is bloody heavy.
Mainly because it has something ridiculous like 90% zinc content.
Treated the chassis of my Discovery2 with it when I first bought it (2nd hand) and never had any rust appear
on it.
