Thread: Which rust converter

  1. #1

    Default Which rust converter

    Just got a recycled bed for my 95 Nissan.
    The bed is solid but has surface rust.
    My plan is to use a rust converter and than bed liner.
    What’s a good rust converter that I can bed liner over?

    I would like to know the answer to your question as well... but with that much rust & old paint involved I would consider having it media blasted.

    Blasting is always best but if you can remove loose paint and loose rust then we would use Picklex 20 and Zero Rust after the Picklex treatment.

    So would Picklex and Zero Rust be a good option for a 50 inch rusted mower deck I am fixing up? Just scored a zero turn but the deck needs rebuilding and a bunch of surface rust on the underneath (sat on lawn for a year) needs some attention... Thanks in advance.

    Yes if you can get rid of the loose rust then apply the Picklex using a pump sprayer work it in with a scuff pad then wipe it off and allow it to dry then spray on two or three coats of the Zero Rust. ZR fades in the sunlight but it will protect the surface for several years if applied properly.
