NEW and improved HD formula. This new formula has a thicker viscosity for easier application on vertical surfaces and when using fiberglass cloth. In my 40 plus years of working on old cars, I have not found any paint you can put over rust that will give you any kind of lasting results. But I have discovered MIRACLE PAINT This is an amazing product and it continually amazes me as I find new ways to use it. It is not a paint, but a rock hard coating that adheres vigorously to rust. And the rust does not come back! When combined with fiberglass cloth it can strengthen weak metal and repair rusted out holes in the sheet metal.
PLEASE NOTE: This kit contains liquids that can only be shipped by UPS ground. Due to this requirement, we can only ship to the continental lower 48 States and no international shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience.
Works on all models 110, 111, 112, 113, 108, 109, 114, 115, 107, 116, 123, 124, 126, and 201 chassis. The majority of older Mercedes have some rust somewhere in one form or another. It may only be surface rust now, but if left alone that surface rust can lead to rust holes which can further lead to some expensive repairs.
I have put together a kit of basic items you will need to complete minor NON-STRUCTURAL rust repairs on your Benz. Works great for trunk and floor rust, rust under the fender wells, chassis surface rust, and anywhere is a non-structural area where the rust has created small holes. Included are
- Quart Miracle Paint rust coating
- Square foot of fiberglass cloth (flexible) material received will be 12" square or 6x24" depending on inventory
- Square foot of fiberglass mesh (stiff) material received will be 12" square or 6x24" depending on inventory
- Brushes (4)
- Protective gloves (3 sets)
- Spray can black chip guard (best quality)
- Introduction to Rust Repair Manual
The textured spray chip guard is the best product I have found the spray over the rust repaired area for both cosmetics and further protection. My manual includes both pictures and detailed descriptions of how to properly apply the products for lasting results.
Do not neglect rust. If you let the rust persist it can cause major problems. Check out my website for ALERTS to see what can happen if you ignore rust on your car. Rust never sleeps. Act now or be sorry. Also, you might consider buying my advanced manual (70 pages if you do not already have it).
SHELF LIFE: Miracle Paint’s shelf life will vary depending on storage temperature and the amount of time the contents of the can are open to air. If you leave the lid off for extended periods or store the can in a warm environment, shelf life could be shortened to 2 to 3 months. If the lid is only opened briefly to apply small amounts or to pour into another container AND if the can is sealed tightly and kept it in a cool place, you can expect the shelf life to be more than a year. If you can store the sealed can in a refrigerator, the shelf life can be extended even further. Once you have used half the can and do not plan to use the remainder soon, we recommend you pour what is left into a smaller container. This will reduce the amount of air contact inside the storage container.
If you are only coating a small rust area, pour the amount you need into a small container (like you see in this picture) and immediately wipe and seal the lid of the can. Be sure to use a plastic bag or Saran wrap between the lid and the can. Even if you clean the can lip, ALWAYS reseal using a plastic barrier or you will have a hard time getting the lid back off without damaging the can! Small plastic containers can be wiped out after use and used again in the future.

Here is the repair sequence of one of the more common rust repairs that this kit excels at - rust in the wheel wells. In fact, doing the repair this way is better than trying to weld in new sheet metal. Have you ever witnessed how rapidly welded steel can rust? If you can not get to the back side of a new weld to treat it will a product like miracle paint it will rust out again from the backside in 4 to 8 years if it is exposed to moisture.
Here is a typical rust spot that you might find in a wheel well area. Doesn't look too bad does it... just remember what you see is always the tip of the Rustburg... This is n example of why I detest body undercoating. It allows moisture to get trapped in behind the coating and actually accelerates the rust out.
When you start scraping away the undercoating and flaking metal, the hole will always be worse than what you first expected.
Once the damaged metal has been fully exposed you can continue scraping and rough sanding the surrounding metal to an area at least 1 to 2 inched past the weak metal.
Coat the area inside the hole thoroughly with Miracle Paint to prevent further rusting, then make a patch of 3 layers of fiberglass mat soaked in Miracle Paint and apply it over the rust hole. When dry overnight you will not believe how strong this repair. Even banging on it will make you think you are banding on sheet metal. It dries as hard as epoxy but will not let loose from the rust like epoxy or polyester resin. It really is a miracle!
When the Miracle Paint is dry you can skim coat it will a waterproof filler, sand the area and then spray it with our high-quality chip guard (do not use typical auto body undercoating. Massage it a little and you can even make it look old and original. Complete details on how to do this are included in my advanced manual on Permanent Rust Repair without Welding.
On another note, this product works great on repairing holes in mufflers and rear exhaust pipes. Just try to find ANY other product that can do that and have it last. I have done repairs on mufflers that have outlasted the life of the muffler itself!
