Hey Guys,

Is there any tips or suggestions to remove slight surface rust off of metal before priming it?

Thanks, T-Bucket Bob Smile

if you have access, you can media blast it with soda (baking soda). There is a mobile service here that charges $65/hr and bare metal with surface rust would be fast to do. But you have to paint it fast.. surface rust appears again like magic.

I'm cheap though, so I'd sand it.. lol
