Post Guidelines for body restoration?

My truck came with 20 gallons of body-filler applied, under several coats of finish. I had several of the panels blasted and primed/sealed so I could get an idea of where I really stood with the metal...problem is, it's re-rusting on me.

What's the best way to keep your panels in good shape while you're working on them? Does a little surface rust matter that much when you're knocking out dents?

After I've completed knocking out the dents on the panels--and filling..what should I do to prep for paint?

I've done alot of reading, just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on this. My metal will probably sit for awhile before I'm ready to have it finished, so what can I do to prevent it from rerusting?
