There must be industrial chemicals available for corrosion removal and inhibition? Is it better to sand or use chemicals to remove corrosion?
So many questions
If you're in the business of restoring cars, you probably would want to do it the right way, which would be to replace the whole panel. I've seen people just cut out the piece of metal that was rusted and weld in a new piece. Thats a lot of work though, to make everything look smooth with a new piece of metal on there.
I've never heard of using chemicals to remove rust, so maybe you're talking about some other kind of corrosion. The cheap way is to take a grinder and grind off the rust, and then just repaint that spot. That will look better than it did before, but still not very good overall.
I'm certainly no body expert, but I don't see anyone else who's very knowledgable chiming in. My advice: if you want a real good job done, bring it to the body shop. People can do a nice job themselves if they are experienced, but you don't seem to know much more than me about the subject.
