YOU are gonna have to use the search feature and figure out the who ,what,where why,& how.

you will also have to spend some time reading

This all depends on alot of stuff

Are you going to just patch over it or cut it out to stop it?

your gonna need a variety of tools

I am having a really hard time even being vague here

So .
you grind,blast , cut out , acid.or rust stop the area

then fill the void with material

then prep the area and fill with material

then prime tach & paint

this is "A bare bones BASIC outline" there IS ALOT MORE TO IT then what I ve written .

There are some very talented auto body /painters here with skill levels WAY above mine

use the search engine,

use the knowledge base
Hotrodders Knowledge Base: Body - Exterior
and use Google
its not something you 'just jump into!"

good luck

I am new here, but the knowledge base covers almost anything you can think of as far as body and paint. Thats how I found the site was looking online for that information.

You need to tell us more what you are doing. When you say you have the stuff, do you mean you have a sheetmetal patch panel, or have steel to make a patch. Or are you planning on using fiberglass mat or filler? Rust is always fighting to come back even taking all the right steps. Which means replacing the part which is the best, or at least patching with new metal where there are holes and using the proper corrosion protection. If you are just fiberglassing in the hole, I give the repair maybe 6 months or so unless you are lucky. New metal can be welded in, or a panel adhesive used to glue the new peice on, but only if a non strutural part. The panel adhesive method wouldn't burn off corrosion protection in the process of installing, and also won't warp like can easily happen if you are not a somewhat experienced welder and you build up heat.

Ok

Um I don't know for sure what we are using. If i had a guess it would probably be the adhesive. but yeah it is over the back two wheels. I don't know what it is called. My dad has it at his place and i don't live with him so i can't get the chance to work on it.

Sounds like you are talking about the wheel well arch section of the bedsides dodge. Adhesives have been discussed before on here, if you do a search. Fusor.com also has a few installation procedures on their site for some guidance on using the panel bonding adhesives. Basically you would have to have a lap joint, clean mating surface to bare metal, and then clamp while the adhesive cures, the clamping gives it strength. Here is one recent discussion on adhesive, and there has to be a few more if you do a search. panel adhesive
Here is one place that sells rust repair panels, maybe you can look and see what you will be replacing, but many of the repairs using adhesive are similar.
