Post Help with Mustang Rust Spots

I need some help with some questions I have about some body work on my Mustang. This is my first car and I have had it since 1978. I started doing some body work years ago and was in a wreck that has left me disabled. I now started to work on the car when I can and found some rust damage in the area of the back window in the upper corner under so factory lead work.The car did and will have a vinyl top. One side has a hole and the other side didnít go through. I need to know if there is a product that I can fill the area with instead of replacing the area with new metal if possible because of being tight on money and not having a welder. The car is going to be a driver not a show car. I have done body work years ago and need to know what filler and a primer I can use as I do panel by panel. Because of my medical problem it is going to take me awhile. I would like to be able to drive the car as I am doing the body work so I need a primer to seal out water. I have most tools except a welder. The rest of the car is rust free and in very good condition besides paint. I have photos of the area in my album.
Thanks Scott

You can use fiberglass for any rust though.Any areas that are not rusted though you can cover with por-15 paint this will stop the rust.Call a auto body supply store and they should be able to tell you what to use for priming. good luck!!!

Look into POR products. They now make patch panels and outstanding filler products. I have used mostly all or their products at some time or another with great http://www.por15.com/
