Rust on door bottoms

Have a little rust building on door bottoms. Is there an "easy" way to deal with this and stop the rust from spreading? Or do I need to go "all in" and cut out the rust / add fresh metal?

Throw out the door seal that is riveted on. Treat and paint the outside, spray the inside with waxoyl clear and it should last a good long while.

Thanks. Do you need to sand off all the rust before adding waxoyl? Just afraid inside rust will be hard to get to.

Remove loose rust. Paint with phosphoric acid. Then Waxoyl.

I've had great results using Devcon epoxy on ours. Take a small grinder and remove all the flaky rust...Then treat with a rust stabilizer like POR15. Mix the Devcon and apply to the areas, but don't go too crazy since the stuff is super tough and a real pain to sand! Then paint. I bought a little hobby airbrush for this and had a quart of paint mixed - works awesome!! I'll see if I can find some photos of the work...

Phosphoric Acid (aka Kleen Strip Prep and Etch) is $15/gallon at Home Depot and can remove that rust to bare metal in less than 48 hours as long as it is completely immersed. It will also dissolve all rust on the inside of the door frame. It does not dissolve steel. I used it on almost everything rusted on my truck to great effectiveness.

It will lightly etch bare aluminum. Not sure what effect it has on the paint, however.
