    Hi folks,

    I have a 2002 Explorer with 184,000 kms on it. I have never paid a lot of attention to any rust on my truck and now it is driving me nuts. I plan on getting a 2016 next summer so I just want some advice to clean it up a bit. Not looking to spend a lot of money or time. I have posted some pictures with comments. Any advise is appreciated.

    I want to fix or mask this without taking off the molding because it can be seen. Don't really want to take off the molding. CLICK

    I have a couple of these spots on the body I would like to fix. CLICK

    I am not overly concerned with this as it can't be seen from outside the vehicle, but if there is something I can cover it with, great. CLICK

    I want to cover this too, and it can't be seen unless the door is open. CLICK

    I don't have the skills for any permanent solutions and I don't want to drop a few grand into fixing everything with a new purchase next summer. Any band-aid solutions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Shayne

    Option 1) buy some touch up and touch every thing up.

    Option B ) Spend money

    Apply some rust converter and seal it with a touch up paint or leave it is.
