Hello all, wondering how I would go about doing rust repair on my r32 gtst. 

 

Pinch welds were bent in by a shop and I tried to bend it back with some vice grips and scraped alot of paint off to reveal rust forming behind where it was bent in. I just sprayed a gel-like rust protection coating on to try to slow it down, but I'd want to completely sandblast it off

. Thank you in advance.

Fortunately it doesn't look too bad. I would just get a wire wheel on it and take it back to bare metal, clean it up, then get some rust protector (POR15 or similar) on it and cover it with some underseal. 

The most worrying part would be whether the rust has gotten in above the pinch welds. In which case it will need professional help - cutting, welding etc.

Lift your carpet and remove the plastic being held in with 3 screws. Both my inner sills exactly at the same spot had decent rust due to this. Somewhat easy cut & weld job though. Cheers.
