rumor is a used car dealer around these parts uses spray foam to fill rust outs. I think if it is a urethane based foam, resins shouldn't attack it. But sure is a hack way of doing things. I am kinda dissapointed, I thought it would be something more interesting after reading the title.

Grind the surrounding area and fill the rust and over the top of the metal with Evercoats “Everglass" (shortest strand), “Kitty Hair”(med strand) or “Tiger Hair” (longest strand) Or 3M’s 05815 Short stand filler, 05813 Long strand filler.

Be ready to sand with some mean paper like 36 grit. Then top that with a skim coat of regular filler or polyster putty.

I have seen that crap do some amazing things.

Now, you aren't going to dump that rust bucket on some poor unsuspecting buyer are you? That wouldn't be right.

If you aren't doing it right, why bother waste the time/money? It will look worse with a scabbed patch. They dont last, and they can be seen from 20' away. Not trying to be a jerk, but I would rather it have a "neglected look" than a "hacked look". IMO, nothing is worse than a hack job. Even with the quarter panels flailing in the wind....
