    Ok, so I recently bought new car which requires care - and I have learnt a lot from this forum on how to create for it - thank you.

    When I gave it its first wash I also hand washed my wife's car and inspected the paintwork up close for the first time in 10 years and found this below - where the wheel arch meets the front passenger bottom sill.

    2 questions:

    What is the process/products needed to make good the paintwork and prevent rust - I'm not too worried about the cosmetics given the age of the car - i am bothered about rust prevention - how do i prepare the site - then what do i apply?

    How do I remove the green algae? Can I use Tar remover or similar?

    Help is much appreciated
