The spring is here and so is the rust, the salt has done the work again during the last winter.... :(
How can I stop the rust that has formed on my rear arch edges on my astra caravan. Seems like here are double layer panels.Must be able to bend open those panels in order to clean away the rust, not so easy I suppose.. :confused:
It hasn`t rusted so badly, yet, only some small boubles seen right at a spot where the two panels are welded together. And can you recommend any good rust protection stuff, that would be so thin that I could spray it inside the wheelarches and it would find it`s way right to the outer edges of the wheel arches?
Please help me with this problem.. :(

Easy one, first strip the paint and rust away to bare metal.
Then apply some treatment to get at any bits left. Halfords sell 'Karust' or simular.

Bad news is mate, Vauxhall rust like theres no tomorrow!
