Body rust
« on: May 02, 2016, 05:44:06 PM »



Pulled off PO angle iron. Had to grind off some welds so have some bare spots and some minor rust.

Plan was to just to clean it up and hit it with some rust oleum rust stop stuff and then install new sliders.

Or, is there something else I should do differently to surface that will be with the new sliders?

I'd clean it up, hit it with some rust converter, spray it whatever color you happen to have nearby (it'll be covered up), then put the new rockers on. Iirc you had some pretty good dents, I'd pound those out before you put the new rockers on.

Yes Ben! A version of it. Great idea! Not easy with one person with no skill. I did have a little mishap when my wood (firewood) slipped off when raising my tub. Somehow that jacked up my door alignment at it would not shut. Great motivation to figure out my doorless mirror situation !  I have not found those mirrors you suggested..

ive found a way to stop rust under stuff like that, you take 2" black pipe wrap that electricians and plumbers use to wrap pipe in the ground and stick it to the slider before its installed

I've heard of people putting rubber sheet between the slider and tub. I cleaned my tub well, hit it with a rattle can cost of black, then sealed the seam with caulk, they're probably rusted to hell, but it'll give me a reason to boat side them. Water will get in no matter what, you just want to make sure it has a way out.

I put a strip of roofing tar on mine. They sell 6" wide rolls at Home Depot. I only unstuck the side on the armor. The backing tape is against my paint. It oozed out a little bit has since stopped.

On my original sliders, I used rattle can bedliner on the tub beneath the slider.  I pulled them off after several years, no signs of rust.  Then I Monsta Lined the entire thing and the sliders.  The new BTF sliders I put on are just painted and put on over the Monsta tub.
