Hey - JeepinNH, I've noticed rust on my 98 XJ Sport right where you said - In the corners - above the windshield at the edges of the drip edge. You also said it was easy rust removal and touch up.

Tell me how to remove the rust .....

Thanks

It's just surface rust and never seems to get much worse than you see. I would sand all the rust out, mask it off, put rust inhibitor then prime and paint. Any blemishes can be filled with a tube of finishing compound before it's primed/painted. The compound comes in a tube a little fatter than tooth paste. Much easier to work with than bondo.

Loctite's rust neutralizer is pretty good, we use it on all the CG boats...right now its pretty much all thats stopping some rust spots on the roof of my xj from getting worst till i cant get it painted.
