    Honestly speaking, rust can't really be removed. You must cut out the rusted metal area and weld in a new piece. You will hear a lot of fail safe rust removal techniques; believe me, none works.
    My opinions, suggestions and thoughts are strictly my own. I reserve the right to be human and make mistakes.

    I would stay away from rusting car.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    U know wat i searched for a car for abt 2 months. I was in search of two things..... My range, NO rust. The car that used to fall in my range was having rust around the door holders etc or the other way. Bottom line, rust is a disease that can never ever b cured and the last resort is as @riz_ said....

    depends if you are getting a good deal on a benz then go for it, if its on front wheel wall thats fine, cus you always replace the fender with used one or new one, but if its on quarter parnel then its the problem, you can fix the rust with bondo and stuff or as someone says cut the metal and put new metal sheet on it, but not worth it cus the cost to do on the fender is better to replaced for cheaper one ...

    i dont know about other places but here in uk if the mercedes is less than 8 years old then go for it either it is rusty because it comes under free warranty from mercedes upto 8 years for rust, ive recently bought a mercedes 220 cdi 2002 model which had a rust on its boot and bonnet they have repaired the boot for me for free but bonnet didn't come under the warranty due to stone chips if there are no stone chips then bonnet also comes under the warranty, i wish pakistani companies also give such after sale services as well after taking a huge amount of money for less worth cars.

    Rust is the cancer of cars.
    Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
