    I pop the wire brush on my electric drill and rust doesn’t stand a chance… I can also strip paint…

    awesome video guys. i’ll be going to a tech school for basic metal repair and metal refinishing. sounds silly to ask, but is this the type of stuff i’ll be learning. it’s all a yet unlearned passion for me right now. awesome vid.

    Is it ok to use etch primer on the rust spot after doing the vinegar water, then do my body filler over the primer?
    Or should I do the body filler on the bare metal

    I was going to go nuts with chemicals for the same result as you’ve got here. But im gonna go with vinegear and see how that turns out. :)

    Great video Pete,thanks for showing us things we can use without spending a lot of cash.Got two vehicles I’ll be stripping at some point and this will really help!

    I am attempting to build a rat rod and using your videos to learn. Thanks for doing them. I want to leave my truck in bare metal but coat it somehow to keep it from rusting. If I am able to get it to bare metal, what do you suggest I coat it with to keep it that way for a long time?

    Pete Dude, You da man! I love the way you tell it like it is! Your a breath of fresh air and I wish the world had more people like you in it! I couldn’t ask for a more down to earth tell it like it is video that the ones you are putting out! Keep up the good work and don’t change a thing! Your worth you weight in gold!

    Great videos! I tried the vinegar solution on some fender skirts. Working as advertised. My question is about the rust converter. Can this be primed/painted over? For example, the roof section that you treated, once the rust con is applied is it ready for primer? PS.. Keep rockin’ the Navy hat!

  • local80g says:

    Hi Pete, Can you please explain primer to me. When do you use epoxy primer and why? I think you said that you cant sand epoxy primer, is this true? If so, what do you do with it once you spray it on your car? When do you use filler primer and when do you use regular primer?
    Please give as complete a answer as you can as I am new at Painting. Thank you.

    If the metal is clean the just spot treat it like I did on this car in the video. All your doing is concentrating on the surface rust areas with the vineger/water mix. Take it easy and good luck. Pete

    You are seriously the coolest guy ever, hands down, I enjoy the way you live life. Thanks for your help as I am restoring a 67 mustang and have found your videos very informative and funny!

  • diyautoschool says:

    If your talking about the green scouring pad that is basically like the scotch brite yes you can.. You can even use steel wool, anything that is course enough to scrub it down and get er done. Pete

  • trooper0198 says:

    what a great tip ! cheap too ! thanks

  • diyautoschool says:

    The vinegar water mix is for surface rust only, if you have thick flaky rust it will not remove it, once you have let the v/m mix dry you should go over it with a d/a sander using 80 grit then epoxy prime… Pete
