Rust removal comes up often on this site, where have you been? ;D

There are several ways you can remove rust. You can cut it out, grind it out, sand blast it, or chemically convert it. Each has it's advantages and disadvantages, but in all you have to get rid of every last bit or it can take root and grow again. Once you remove every last bit of rust, it's important to seal the raw metal from moisture by priming and painting. Use undercoating or even products like Hurcurliner, or POR-15 to prevent rock chips and such underneath.

What chemical will nutrilize the rustt? I am thinking of taking my body completely off to go over the frame and under carrage. i am also looking for an inexpencive undercoating that dries completely not tacky. Do you have any ideas?

I used naval jelly to clean/remove and then a rust treatment, both bought at NAPA. Actually, I cut out the worst spots first. All the areas I had rust on were turned black by the treatment.

There are several products sold that do a good job of converting rust, but as I said before each method of rust removal has it's advantages and disadvantages. I would use rust converters to chemically convert the rust where it's difficult to cut or grind the rusted metal, and I'd use it only for small areas.

For your frame, you can do alot of grinding or sand blasting. For very heavy scale I would suggest you remove rivets and brackets, then clean off the rust under those parts.

To help prevent future rust, paint the frame with POR-15.
