Rust Removal or Treatment



Hi Kevin,
Enjoyed the read, just a quick question i a have a 1992 honda prelude 2.2vtec si. Is the engine an interferance engine. Can you also tell me how to treat rust from the inside of body work.

Many thanks,

Andy M.


Yes, Your engine is an interference engine.

Rust is tough to get rid of, the best way is to cut it out and weld in new metal. If you can not do that, a rust converting product can help stop it from spreading. The rust converting liquid will convert the rust and leave a coating ready to paint. Check out for their rust treatment products. I would undercoat the area after it is treated to prevent any future rust from starting.  I also have an extensive write-up about rust here
