We have a small strip of rust along the kick plate area of our outside
storm door. It's one of those white full view doors where you switch
between a screen and glass. Anyone have a good method of removing
Scruffy pad or fine grit sandpaper, prime, and paint. Get rid of ALL the
brown, and use rust convertor before painting. Use appropriate paints for
whatever the door is made of, and use quality stuff. A lot easier with door
on sawhorses, if there is an easy way to pull it w/o demounting the frame.
If factory finish is failing already, you may want to consider covering with
a shiny kickplate with 'no tarnish' finish. Make sure you install in a way
that won't allow water to build up behind, or eventually plate will fall off
and leave a square hole, like when the trim falls off an old pickup truck.
