    Hi All,

    My 2002 ML is starting to rust :-(

    Usual places:

    Rear wheel arches
    Rear door, by the handle
    little patch on the bonnet
    Couple of patches on corner of bootlid and roof.

    My question is this;

    I am obviously better off sorting this out now. However, I don't want to stretch to a resplay (I was quoted at £700 for just the bits I need doing).

    Does anyone have a good guide or method for just sorting out small rust patches?

    i.e.
    rub down patch
    coat with a rust tratment
    primer spray
    colour spray

    Cheers

    Thats what I tried, it really came back with a vengeance and I am now thinking about replacing the front wings ........ boot lid, rear wheel arches, front cross member ........ you have to ask yourself if it is really worth it ?
