Step 1: Cleaning N´ Rust Sanding ;

Clean it up! Take off all the dust with a wet towel.

Start sanding the rusted areas, using first the lower grain sanding paper. You also have to sand the scratched areas.

Once it´s done its time to apply the Primer!

Step 2: Primer and Painting ;

I applied both the primer and paint with the roller paint, you can also use a painting brush or spray paint!

Step 3: Contact Adhesive Applying

First, the surface you are applying the adhesive must be clean.

Make sure to cut a size that fits good at the surface.

You can cut the edges with a snap-off blalde, and sand it at the end.

That´s all!

It´s pretty simple
