lowstreet 1. Never use any filler on holes or rust.
2. cut as much rust out as you can.
3. weld the new metal in place.(do not warp)
4. after all welding is completed grind the weld down.
5. use a very thin coat of bondo to smooth imperfections.
6. sand the bondo and use high build primer.
7. sand the primer smooth.

Should I try and weld as much of any open space thats possible,(with other pieces of fender) and then start to use fiberglass repair and then the bondo stuff? OR am I way out of whack? Advise, Dana
Anyway you can post a picture of the fender and area of concern? It'd help in making a recommendation...
