[DML] Re: not-so-stainless steel :(

If the "rust" oxidation is just on the surface the blending pad will
do it. If it is flecks of steel from someone who used steel wool it
should also work. If it truly is corrosion from someone using
something that contained Chlorine then the surface is pitted and you
will have to sand it out with 80 # sandpaper and then finish with a
blending pad. If you are worried about it happening again you *could*
cover the S/S with a good wax. You should never have to clean the car
with anything stronger than mild car wash soap. For spots that get tar
on them Laquer Thinner is good or Bug & Tar remover works also. After
you finish with the door you will find yourself going over the whole
car to make it match!
