Repair Rusted Frame

Put your safety gear on. Plug in the sander.

Remove as much rust from the frame surface as possible with the sander. Rub the sander against the rust in a circular motion and with the sander on the low setting. Scrape the area with a wire brush.

Dab a small amount of naval jelly onto a cloth and rub it on the rusted surface. Let the jelly sit for roughly 10 minutes. Wipe it off with a dry cloth.

Apply the corrosive primer to the freshly rust-free areas. Use the sponge paintbrush for a smooth application. Allow 24 to 48 hours for the primer to dry completely.
