I am 95% sure I have finally found my first bug, and baja.

Nice solid car, pans and heater channels look very good. Several spots of surface rust on the outside, and some spots on the inside pan I want to do something with ASAP.

Reading through an older VW restoration mag, there was mention of a specialized multi-step product to apply and seal. Anyone have experience with new products? Any suggestions as to how to tackle the rust?


The car is in quite good condition (in terms of rust anyway), and I would like to keep it that way for as long as possible.

Thanks for any suggestions and help.

You can buy naval jelly at most parts & paint stores, apply it to stop the rust and then primer afterwards..

I have some lint to go with your Jelly. The best ting to do is sand and get primer or paint on it ASAP do not let it go. If you live som place like AZ rust is not a big deal.

Thanks for the replies.

I am in Utah, and this is the most solid baja I have seen so far. It must have come up from the South. Being here I am concerned about the rust getting worse.

Thanks again.
