    miyata 912 rust

    Hey all,
    I picked up this Miyata 912 a few months ago. I bought it from the original owner, who had ridden it hard and was sad to see it go. It has become my main commuter and I really like it. It has a few rust spots. They are all fairly small. Most are on the top tube, but some of the lug points have a little corrosion on them as well.
    How do you think these look? Do you think clear nail polish will take care of them? I'm not really worried about cosmetics, just want to make sure the frame lasts. Thanks!!

    you can dab naval jelly on there with a q-tip, let it sit for 5 minutes and wash/rub off. repeat as necessary. or you can sand it off carefully.

    when finished, you can try touching it up with black paint or nail polish like you said. just a small amount.

    lastly, wax your frame with a good auto wax. if you keep it waxed every month or 2, the rust will not return.

    It's hard to tell from the photos, but it looks pretty minor. I agree with illwafer, touch up and ride!
