I'm in the process of dismantling my galaxie to repaint it. I have some heavy surface rust and a couple of small rust holes in the trunk floor pan. Should I sand blast it or use a chemical rust remover and then a rust encapsulator? I know that the sand blaster would prob. due a better job but it also makes a big mess and I don't realy want to get the sand throughout my car? Any suggestions welcome thanks guys!!!

Blast the trunk pan or grind it all off. If not it will come back to haunt you regardless of the chemical proceedure you used.

I would use a cup brush. A lot cleaner than the other two methods and very fast too. Then I would use a metal prep to clean and etch the surface and then finish however you would normally do.
