You can prevent it happening with underseal and galvanisation, but you have to keep renewing it as it wears away.

you cant cure it, but you can slow it down, clean off as much as you can with an eletric wire brush, then apply a rust eater, then a zinc paint

Re: a cure for rust?

yup, once its started you will never get rid of it unless you replace that section of metal. and even then it will probably come back.

As said, you can only slow it down and temporarily prevent it, but if you forget about it ital return!

grind back as much of the rust as you can to bear metal. then apply some hammerite krust. then antirust primer over the top and apply the top coat. should do the job nicely

Then again, why restrict yourself, a MacLaren F1 or McMerc. Both Carbon fibre monocoques.
