I use to work in hot rod shop making stainless steel gas tanks. We would clean the welds with full strength vinegar and common scratcher pads for dishes to get rid of the blue weld marks from tig welding. My boss used to say that this was the best because the alternative was a smelly acidic stuff that was very expensive and hazardous. So I can see this working as well.

Bondo isn't a quick cure for rust cancer...
Cleaning the surface properly and leaving the surface covered. Does the job :)
Any 'quick cure' for Rust Cancer? Besides Bondo? <br>
Vinegar is already pretty dilute so when I clean rust with vinegar I use it full strength. Vinegar is also pretty cheap by the gallon bottle too so I'm not very concerned about stretching it out. I never tried spraying vinegar though, I dip rusty metal in vinegar.
