Rust spots on roof
I bought a 2007 2.2 cdti type s earlier this year. After a month or so I noticed a couple of small stone chips on the roof which were starting to rust - not bubbling or anything, literally just starting.
I bought some touch up paint and lacquer, and used a dremel to sand out the chip, widening it a tiny bit and going back to metal completely getting rid of any trace. I then cleaned thoroughly with white spirit, applied primer, paint, and lacquer.
A couple months later I noticed the tiniest amount of rust showing through again. It hasn't got any worse for months, but weather has been good.
Should I try again? Or is this going to be a losing battle? I'm toying with the idea of an mx5, but I'm in no rush since I'm still enjoying the civic... however if this is gonna be a problem when the rainy weather comes I'd rather shift it on before then...
