How to fix surface rust?
I recently removed the chrome grill on my 05 and was greatly dismayed to see that rust was forming behind the overlay on the grill. How can I fix this? I'd like to do something myself now to keep it from getting worse and then in the spring have it professionally fixed or at least repainted after I do the prep work. Any tips would be appreciated.

sand it smooth and to where there is no more rust, clean it up(reducer, paint thinner), tape up, prime it, wet sand, get some paint matching spray paint (they sell it at auto zone, i believe your paint code is px8 but that could be wrong), paint with paint match 2 coats, 1 coat of clear coat, then wet sand everything smooth including the original paint beside it.
no doors, no top, no problems
