It's been my experience and recently confirmed, that when seeking rust, take a hammer and beat on the undercoating, where the undercoating falls off you'll find rust. Similarly, with any tool like a chisel or scraper try to remove undercoating. Anyplace where it comes off without a battle is rusted. Do some serious poking. where there is no rust you wont do any damage. Am not talking about exterior paint, just inside and underneath, behind and below. Inside, wherever that rubbery stuff is that they put on the floors the same holds true, if it comes up easily you'll find rust

I use these type of rust repair panels on a few of my vehicles. Since the rust war is usually un-winable and I look for the quick fix at times, I'll just double face tape and silicone these in place Then paint to match. Sometimes you'll need to "expand" the metal in various ways as these are typically "weld in" panels and are not usually not designed to fit over existing stuff.

Hi folks. I see Fluid Film coating was mentioned in this thread. Have any of you Applied fluid Film to the bottom of a horizontal surface? I want to apply it to the underside of the new floor pan in my car but if it just drips off onto my face then I have pretty much wasted $45 for the gallon. I plan to apply the product using a brush. Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Yes I hijacked this thread but the last post was 4+ years ago so I think this is alright.
