My working place have a water jet so I will spray it when I am free and tell myself now is clean don't go and see is it still dirty or not.Hahahahaha
Don spray after hard drive. Take care disc rotor. Just a precautions.
Unless ur caliper jammed, rotor will get very hot. That is different story.

mari. I can help with that. I have the ironX thing so remove baked on brake dust and rattle can spray paint. Even have glow-in-the-dark paint if you're keen.

:biggrin:

At home playing games and forgot about to do thing to my car.SInce there is extra 2 more week to go I think I will do some cleaning to my rear boot. Wanna ask if I wanna sand of the rust inside the boot like spare tyre section those,any suggestion what kind of sand paper to go for? 1000 & 400?
After sanding and cleaning might juz gv it a quick spray to prevent rust again.

400 or 600 is good. 1000 is too fine. If you got the budget add a primer layer otherwise just spray some paint for rust protection.

I will use a copper brush then apply rust converter if needed before spraying primer.
If very rajin, a layer of black underbody paint.

Had wash the boot below are before & after pic.
There is not very much rust than I thought.
Tomorrow will start sanding it and clean it again to paint.
agree with bro @gunnerzz
copper brush and rust converter. Use screw driver grip to knock the suspected pop up paint.
U wont know rust grow under the paint. One time job, check it all. U got 2 weeks.
