with new panels you have to do at least steps 2 & 3.

galvanise the subframe. easiest way. down here in cornwall it costs 1 per kilo so about 30-40 for a complete subframe maximum

you won't be able to use it on the rest of the body, I'd only use it where you can't see.
I would just treat the rust patches with Kurust or something similar and then prime and paint as normal.

underside of the car, under the carpets and dash, engine bay, anywhere it won't really be seen, it is brushed on, so you won't get as good a finish as spray paint.

I am imagining that cars don't rust as much in Saudia Arabia, would I be correct in that assumption Nerdymind?

only downside was that the mini was built in the UK , so we put rust on them when we build them

Whatever you do - don't Powdercoat. Ask any decent vehicle restorer.
If it chips or, more likely, cracks - water gains an entry and then creeps everywhere underneath the coating. It will actualy hold water between the base metal and the plastic as it loses it's bond.
Paint does chip but the ingress of water stays in the locality of the chip + and this is a big + - a repair can be made with a touch of sanding, primer and paint.

Agreed - and I'm too tight for powdercoating. You have to scratch it off because it tightens up clearances. American Chopper this aint .... Scrapheap Challenge... Maybe?
