We all hate it and are all to familiar with it. Last year I polished the center part of my starter untill it looked chrome. Then I used adhesion promoter, followed by many layers of clear coat. A year latter it looks like... rust. Right now I have it hanging, all cleaned up, but this time I have a few coats of rust treatment on it. Which turns black. Guess there goes the polished look. I really need help in this area. If any of you have some magic beans or deep secrets on getting rid of this cancer, and keeping it away for at least a few years, I'm all ears!!!
