Lightbulb Another rust case..........DIY repair....

My car just turn 100,000 miles!!!!!! Well I went ahead and repair the door jamb areas because of rust. The only areas with rust on my car, very superficial and easy to repair. Well decide to take the fender off, and that also forced to take the bumper. On pic 2 notice all the old leaves that came out of the lower fender area, but surprisingly there was no rust on these areas. On pic 1 is the door area after some cleaning, I use a drill and wire brush adapter and came out real good. After cleaning the areas, tape and primer. Last buy good quality paint and take your time. The hardest part was the cleaning, not much room to work with. I went ahead and took the bumper apart and wash the inside and painted the metal brackets and hardware...a complete face lift on my baby....
