Questions about some floor rust
Not a lot happen with Moby this past week. We are all up in the air about our floor plan - trying to work all the water plumbing one wall. along with where to put the bathroom - half over wheel well? I was thinking put it forward like starting right behind the diver seat, could use some floor plan input. We have decided we are going to sand the floor smooth of surface rust then paint with Rust-O-leum protective paint.
So first question what should be done about the rust in 3 images? Has anyone dealt with this before? what should I do and what can be done.
*location is both front and back of the wheel well hump
I will be checking the condition next week to get a better idea of how bad it is. As it looked and felt today. Very firm around the edge of the rust . Does not appear to go strait through. and doesn't seem to be structural. I looks like o some of the flooring metal has just rusted. not sure if its kicking up water due to the wheel wells form the outside. Or it came from the inside
My idea was to fill with a JB weld type materiel . then cut a patch to shape, attach thin gauge metal with a liquid nails type adhesive.
Along that same line what have you all used to fill in bolt holes in the floor?? I think everyone wants something long lasting, and that will not fail with exposure with road salt and water over time. Im thinking a Alex Plus sealant from homedepo. We use it alot at work for outdoor conditions on house windows. holds up to cleaning chemicals, wind rain, UV, or is there a sealant like JB weld for a caulk gun.
the last picture is of the very last window inside metal fame rail, it has probably from a leaky window.
