Treating the rust

Treating the rust (inside)

I had to treat the rust, There were so many products on the market I just didn’t know where to start. I found one that a friend of mine uses, so I gave it a go. Its called Aquasteel and if you have a read up on it, it seems pretty impressive stuff 

Stages of rust removal

  2. Treat the rust with a rust converter Aqualsteel it goes a really cool colour 20151004_182639
  3. Let it dry for a day 
  4. I then painted it with a black metal paint click here (I wanted white but I had half a black tin left over)metal paint
  5. Problem solved once the paint has dried it can be lightly sanded or in my case boarded over with plywood.
