Anyone know whats good for preventing rust on my cm polar mount.
I re-sprayed it over a year ago and its perfect, but i can see very small amounts of rust around where the bolts are on the mount, but seeing as the weather is dry i would like to apply something, before it gets any worse.

The bolts are stainless steel, so there fine.
My actuator has seen better days,works well,but it's full of rust after just over a year,Might replace it makes it look bad, haha.

I use Kurust on my rusty bits >> Obtainable for around a fiver from Halfords.

Paint on and that's it: Converts the rust and primes for painting (If desired).

Not perfect, but it slows down further corrosion and is easy to apply with a small paintbrush.

And a little goes a long way.

Hi,

In the past I have removed the rust areas, and given a good wire brushing followed with a few coats of Hammerite.
