Hello and good day Scott:

May I ask [U]HOW BAD!![U] Is this Rust??? Are we talking small holes, and Patches??

I am not a Body Man .. But if they are really bad you would have to cut it out and Weld new metal over it.

If small Get a Bon-do Body Kit. if you do some research online you may find how to use the kit, and what materials you would need.

Try this Google link Auto body repair how to - Google Search


Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

Re: Rust question

Bubbling paint and rust means it is rusting from the inside out. What you see from the
outside is nothing compared to what is on the inside that you can't see. If you want to
keep the car you should do as S.6 says. If not load it up with bondo. It should last about a year. That car has base-coat , clear-coat. You will not find that a your autozone.
