Fark mate that rust is rude!

Depends how much you value your car, id never go bog all the rust patches under the windows, ive seen so many vls around done like this and it cracks.

My car has copped a respray with the rust cut out and if you spend a little extra and do it properly it wont happen again while ya own it.

not as bad as it looks? that's obscene, the back end of your car looks like it's gonna seperate from the front sometime soon! if you don't have money or means to do it properly or immediately get a can or two of that $2 fish oil from supercheap and hit the whole lot - better dry it out first tho!

Bumping the 2006 days

Is it worth applying fish oil (Septone) to external parts around windscreen, rear screen - typical parts.

I'm referring to small rust flakes sort of stuff.

- Would it hinder the already present rust by any chance?

putting anything like that will only slow the rusting down and will have to be maintained. once you have rust its always there unless you cut it out. your best bet if ever you do bare metal work is wire brush it, apply phosphuric acid which u can buy at auto shops l, than repair/ etch primer and so forth

Happy Christmas
