Ive cleaned and waxed the car regularly but its about time to address the rust problems, any particular rust beaters or protectors that anyone can recomend?
    I have used the Loctite rust treatment after rubbing down. A bit early to tell but has good write ups on the net.

    Do we think this is a common problem on this specific colour only?

    As do I, but there seems to be a long thread on the matter.

    What and how old is that car? Must have lived by the sea to be in that state?

    It was a VW Beetle made in 1974 which I rebuilt for my brother in 1990. Without modern galvanisation that is what rain water did to a car in 16 years

    This is the kind of plating you had to do to repair it



    Note the bit of Dexion for a new jacking point! made a good earthing point for the MIG as well

    my silver grey e46 2004 318i saloon has a 1mm bit of rust on the bootlid near the handle, getting it sorted next week. Bmw werent interested because its been sprayed already. Funny that, i purchased as auc from main dealer. 2k premium wasted apart from 700 quid of mechanical warranty work after 6 months. Selling my car next summer, spent a fortune maintaining it since nov 2010. Only 47k at present with fbmwsh. Getting an a3 sportback next...
