As you've probably been told, unless that rust is cut out, it WILL come back. The only temporary solution I can suggest is to use a rust neutralizer like One-Step, lightly sand, then use a high build putty mixed thoroughly to remove air bubbles- DON'T STIR RAPIDLY! The method you are using seems fine, just don't sand it all off- it sounds like you are going too far every time if it is wavy or has low spots. It is a small area and you should be able to fill that in two applications. Take your time and remember- 'rust never sleeps'- it will come back if not removed, especially on a driver in the elements. Good luck!
