Some of the finish has chipped away allowing the metal to rust.
The mount brackets are fine. I need a replacement rod approx. 18 inches long.

U could always repair the rod, its cheaper and easier, first of clean the rust off with viniger, white works best, then go buy some enamel paint, a small jar of whatever colour it is make sure its water prof, i suggest u do this in the morning then it will be dry for u to use at night, and there u go, if ur lazy however spend the money and change the bar, gd luck!

What can my neighbor lady use to add a back to her shower caddy?

I would recommend cutting a vinyl shower curtain to fit. Otherwise, if you'd prefer a hard back, you can usually find some relatively thick plexiglass that should do the trick nicely. It wont rust, because it isnt metal, isnt likely to mold or mildew up too bad, and it's pretty easy to clean and resists alot of different cleaners pretty well. Hope this helps

Floorboard is rusting in my 94 geo metro

There's not a whole lot you can do about a rusted out floorboard. If it's just rusting a little bit, you can probably get away with cleaning off the rust with steel wool or a wire brush and treating it with some naval jelly, then painting it with a good rust converting paint or underbody coating.

If it's already weakening the metal, the only solution is to weld a new piece of sheet metal in place.

Bathtub chips

To fix small porcelain bathtub chips, you can use acrylic nail polish that matches the bathtub color. Just get some fine sand paper to remove any rust, then clean with alcohol, let it dry, and then touch up with the nail polish. Use a hair dryer on high heat to help dry faster, but wait several hours after to use.

On the bottom of my microwave, the coating started "chipping" off and now there is a fairly large area that appears to be rusting and makes where the turntable wheels rest look really dirty. Is there...

This is often caused by spills and condensation.

The metal will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

You can use a wire brush and naval jelly to get rid of the rust.

If any rust remains, you can use Rust Reformer paint to stop the rust process, then sand it smooth when it's dry.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

Motorbike sitting in shed unused for a year. Chrome has little rust spots all over. How may I get the rust spots off without damaging the chrome? I live within about one kilometre of the ocean and at times...

you'll need some steel wool, use fine if the rust is not bad. No need to scratch the metal too hard for nothing.
Second you'll need some metal polish to lubricate, and polish while you rub with the steel wool. Liquid polish works better..
you'll need a clean rag to buff out everything after you've removed the rust.

Rub the metal-polish-loaded steel wool on the part until you see the brown rust pits vanish. Don't do a circular motion, go in a back-and-forth motion instead to match the length of the part. Circular scratches will show even if they are very small.
Once you've made all the rusty spots go away, take your polishing rag, a clean cotton t-shirt can do the job, and buff the piece until you are happy with the result.
You can always finish with a regular application of metal polish without the steel wool after you're done.

1994 acura integra--Paint job.

Surface rust can be worse than it appears so then in that case, the bad spots will have to be cut out and new metal welded in its place. (Look at the rust from underside of the panel--moisture gets there and rusts from the inside out) Paint chips can be sanded down. As far as a quote, here in southeast Missouri would be $1600-$1700 for a full body paint job.

Rust on stainless handle charbroil

stainless steel ??? rust??? technically s/s should never rust. however particles on the finish will rust and stain the metal. heres a solution that i use and works real well. look closely at the handle you should be able to detect a grain in the metal ( just like wood s/s has a grain pattern) with a scotchbrite pad sprayed with wd-40, wipe handle WITH the grain, slowly at first applying even long strokes,, it will come clean, as well as leave a protective finish so as not to happen again
