If you have a rust spot it is likely going to take more than just riping it out and feathering the paint to do the repair. It will take some kind of filling to bring it up to the level of the other metal/paint. Depending on how deep the rust is, you may end up grinding through the panel. The body lines are no thicker than the rest of the panel.

You first must make sure you remove and kill all the rust so that it will not come back. Just sanding it away is not enough, it must be chemicaly killed with something like Ospho(sp).

Use a block to bring it back in shape. Using just your hand will leave a depression.
