Last wof I got a pass but a note on the sheet about rust on the boot floor.

Anyway, have sanded it and primed it with red oxide primer, will sand again once I see how rough it is over the worst part and then paint it with a hammered finish charcoal coloured paint as I have been advised that is sufficiant to get thru as it was just a warning and not a fail, the thing is the underside is looking a little bit like it needs some TLC under the spare wheel well. Whats the best to put on the underside of a car that will cover the surface rust and not just chip staight off?

I was thinking of covering it with some black plastidip spray can. I only have short axle stands so getting right under the car isnt really that easy, but I could get in and give it a light hand sand and spraycan without too much drama.

Get some POR15. Available from shops that sell panelbeating supplies. To prepare the surface just remove loose rust and paint ect. A fine layer of rust is ok to leave on the surface. Degrease then apply POR15. It cures with moisture from the air. When it is dry it is almost impossible to remove. Only requires topcoating if it will be exposed to sunlight. POR means Paint On Rust.
