Rust Treatment Products

I have a couple of small rust holes on my fender. My usual procedure is to remove rust with sand paper, bondo in some plastic mesh and finish up with bondo, primer and paint.

I saw two rust preventative products and wanted to get the scoop on these. One is Loctite Extend Rust Treatment and the other is Rustoleum Rust Reformer.

What I need to know is can you apply bondo on top of either of these products or must the bondo be applied to rust free metal? In the past I have always bondoed directly to rust free metal?

If you are not going to weld the hole, it should be sandblasted on both sides until free of all rust. Small sandblasting tools are available at minimal cost. Then epoxy should be applied to both sides before continuing with the repair. At that point your metal will be sealed against moisture penetration, and your repair will have a chance of lasting more than a couple of years. Something should be applied to the back after the repair, epoxy or at least undercoating.

Crashtech is on the right track. Repairs like these probably won't last a long time, specially if you're in wet areas. Deadbodyman has used some glue in patches, send him a P.M. to see how it works for him.
