Im sure there has been loads of threads like this but i will start another!

I have a 94 civic coupe and theres so much rust around the arches! One side is just crumbling away!

What is the cheapest/easiest way to get rid of the rust?

Any help will be greatly appriciated

Thanks Joe

Joe, the only real way to get rid of rust to to cut the arches out and weld new steal in.

ideally a mini sand blaster to get into the pitted metal as its amazing how deep the rust gets into the steel
also try rust gel/acid and keep applying it for a few days
dont think it will dissapear straight away it took a while to get there.
