Damn. Just noticed this today, but clearly it has been festering for awhile. I’m all too familiar with rust repair on this car, and this rust hole will probably not give me a ton of trouble, but does anyone know how to remove these rust streaks from the existing, good paint?

Polishing compound. The molding has to be removed so you can get underneath, removing the rust though. The area below the side molding where the paint has lifted can be fixed and spotted in or at the very worst resprayed the whole panel from the middle of the molding and downward to end of the door panel after the molding is removed.

Yes, that's a pretty solid recipe Carl. 👍
