Have a silver GTS 250 from 2009......the under panel has completely rusted! Have treated it and repainted but it really needs to be done properly - Rather see what tips there are from others, rather than getting it done professionally.

Cheers Tony

How you advise someone to deal with an issue like this is dependant on just how bad it is. You say it has "completely rusted". What does that mean? Are there holes in the panel? Pictures would be nice.

And can you tell us exactly what treatment you have already administered to the under panel. Thanks!

If it is completely rusty, it must be sanded down to the bare metal, then a layer of protective spray primer must be applied and finally painted.
