I'd like to suggest another forum.

"Maintenance".

I have a question regarding maintenance and I'll be darned if I can find the appropriate place to put it. If someone knows I"d appreciate their moving this.

And for now I'll just go ahead. Mine is an older Class B, always kept inside, but still older. It is getting spots of rust, some of on the door hinges, some of it on trim where paint has peeled a bit, just here and there.

What is people's experience with smaller amounts of exterior rust, that which isn't worth taking the grinder or wire brush to, but also don't want to let go if something can be done.

Thanks for whatever attention you can give this.

Good basic answer! Depends on how good you want the touch up to look.

There are about 10 "Rust Converter" products on Google, I assume any would work it's just the method of application which would vary.

The Falcon 190 is 25 years old, Intervec is out of business and I doubt if it's a Ford color. I suspect the best idea would be to go to a body shop and ask them to match the paint. They have gadgets which will tell them the exact colors and ratios to do that.

Thanks for the response.

I think a good automotive paint supply can "scan" your MH and match the paint. This site has a look up for suppliers by zip code en - Refinish

rust never sleeps

first deal with the rust then repaint. home depot has a paint that bonds with rust (eastwoods patents must have come off) only problem is these products only come in black. so harder to paint over with your color. just remember rust never sleeps if you don't deal with it the first time you'll have another chance in a couple of years. also always like to heat up the metal if possible the paint bonds better.
