    Default Love my 2000 Accord, don't love the rust

    I'm really happy with my '00 Accord Coupe so far, but I just found a
    nasty little spot of rust in a place I've never seen rust, on the
    front pillar of the driver's side door, under the weatherstripping. I
    guess there was an undetected leak in there for a long time before I
    got it. Anyone experienced this? Is it common? I guess I'm going to
    have to pull off the stripping and really clean it out in there.

    You sure will.

    If your setup is anything like my Integra's, you'll have lots of rust
    starting under the stainless that holds the rubber on.

    Use a Dremel with a drum sanding attachmenmt or a flap wheel. Do NOT use a
    wire brush. Wire brushes simply polish the rust while not actually removing
    it. Convert any remaining rust with a gel-type phosphoric acid-based
    converter. Clean off well with Prep-Sol or other body prep solvent.

    Prime with high-build /ZINC/ primer, then cover with standard touchup
    paint. The primer and paint are best brushed on, not sprayed. Check ALL the
    screw points carefully, as they can ALL rust.

    The sooner you get these, the better your chance of success.

    I have the same on my '00 Accord Sedan.

    There is no way to prevent rust up there. That's one of the reasons I
    left years ago...
