Stop Surface rust / paint - longterm storage

Recommended Posts

As long as the shed is not damp/wet, the rust shouldn't progress much.  Bad to cover it with plastic as that tends to store condensation and would increase dampness under the cover.  

Not perfect, but you can stop the rust by dabbing rust neutralizer on the spots, but they will turn black.  That coating will be paintable if you wanted.  But the coating will last years and will not rust.  Paint Over Rust with Extend Rust Neutralizer


A less desirable but reversible way is to smear grease on those rust spots to keep moisture out.  But then you'd have to clean it all off in the future.
