I have a small radiator and its getting rust marks on it, so what do I do to
cover it up. I was told a few years ago that red lead is obsolete, so what
is best to use. I have a local B&Q in the virginity
It is no use covering it up, you need to remove the rust, either physically
with abrasives or chemically with a rust remover e.g. Jenolite. Then paint
with metal primer, undercoat and a top coat of radiator paint. Red lead
paint is still available, only white and grey lead paint was phased out. If
the rust is due to moisture/condensation in the atmosphere because of where
the radiator is located then whatever you apply will only slow corrosion at
