Rust & repair question
I changed my axle snubbers month-two ago. It was already winter time, so (stupidly enough) I left them unpainted. Oh yeah, they're welded on to the frame (since I broke all the bolts - yes, ALL of them [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] ).
Now I see there's some rust on the welds (obviously, with water, moist, sal on the streets etc.)
How bad could it be so far? I mean, I didn't go offroad since, only street driving. They got their share of water and salt, but only what wheels picked up.
How do I cure it? I mean, before painting it, I should remove rust, no? With sandpaper, or with something else? How deep? Or do I just hammer them off, clean'em & weld 'em up again (I'd hate to do that)?
