Newbie surface rust question.

Hello. You'll have to forgive how stupid this question probably sounds.

If I have minor surface rust, and sand it down, will the sanded area be noticably lower than the rest of the panel? Should my inexperienced hands try to fill it up, or is this work done as paint prep at the shop, if at all?

Thank you.

if it's really surface rust than no but if it's a little deep, then yes. dosn't matter anyway because the primer/ surfacer will take care of that when you block sand the primer surfacer to get the car 100% str8

You didn't say if the car was stripped or not. Figuring that you are at bare metal, it should not be a problem, as was said, the prep part will take care of matching the areas.

If the rust areas are on painted panels, then yoe, that area will be lower, and if the panel is not stripped, it will need additional work.

That being said. If the car is stripped, you need to put some epoxy primer on it as soon as possible, or you will be removing rust again.
