    Default What Products for Rusty Door Bottom Seam?

    I have a GMC Sierra with rust popping on the inner door bottoms seams. It's coming from the inside out, and I assume there will be more rust on the inside once I remove the door panels. At this point I'm not wanting to cut/weld on these doors, but wonder if some of the rust products you have might help at least slow it down. What process and products would you recommend I use to deal with this? I did a search on this but got conflicting answers, so I thought I'd ask again.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I would suggest trying out our internal frame coat for the inside of the doors, especially if you can't fully get into every little nook and cranny inside the doors. This will treat and stop the rust on the inside, on the outside I'd brush on some of our rust converter and follow up by sealing with rust encapsulator and then a top coat of your choice. Don't forget to at least wire brush off any major rust on the outside of the door before applying any chemicals.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Matt. I'm curious about your rust dissolver. Would that help penetrate the small areas where the water got through the seam and rusted, or is it not needed here?

    It would work, although it would be a bit more difficult to remove the residue or the chemical that is left over after it "dissolves" the rust. So you then have to rinse, treat the rinsed metal, etc. Rust dissolver I feel is much better for large surfaces you can easily get to, or small parts you can easily handle.
