I am inheriting my parents VW Passat B6 TDI Estate

Unfortunately VW refused to fix the paint issues as it was over the 12 year period.

Now there is some rust spots forming around the following areas:

  • Rear lights
  • Door arches
  • Bonnet (hood)
  • Front wings

Is there any recommended repair stuff to prevent further rusting?

I was considering a respray or getting the car wrapped, however for the latter they refused to wrap it until the rust is repaired.

Also: any idea what the colour code is for my vehicle (this colour is what I have in the pic below)

I'm not sure what engine code it is, I haven't collected the car yet.

Just wanting to start research on how to fix the rust spots.

Probably be easier to just buy new or used body parts at this point. I know a new front fender in the USA is like 100$ from the dealership.
