After looking in my trunk today I found that there is some surface rust under the 1/4 panel lip that follows to all the way back between the 1/4 and the wheel well. I cant get back there with a wire wheel or grinder. how do I attend to this rust? Keep in mind I drive this car every day and tearing it apart to pieces is out of the question.

Thanks For The Help

The only way I know is the oldfashioned hard way - by hand with sandpaper folded to suit.
Do a little or alot at a time. Then coat it with a real rust preventive coating like the red stuff Eastwood sells - GEEEEE - I can't remember the name of it.With that stuff, you don't need to get it all, you can cover rust.
Found it on the Eastwood site; Corroless

I was thinking about Extend. I have rust on the floor of the trunk and I was going to whack it with that stuff first. I've only used it once, on the hood of a ( gulp) Spectrum. It worked as advertised and the rotted out hood repair lasted for over one year until I sold the car. It has a chem reaction with the rust and neutralizes it. Then you prime and shoot.
