    Hey gents. As it says whats the best way to treat the rust on all the arches on a signum. Would like to get it all sorted as im planning on keeping her and parting company with the c.

    Your ideas are appreciated.

    Only one way to make sure it won't come back is to get the rot cut out and weld new parts in. that's what I've just done on my B. I'm Sure you could sand it down fill it paint but will only come back in time. Do it right once and you'll not have to do it again :)

    Like Paul says, you can treat the rust but the best way is to cut it out.
