if that is your car i would leave it alone as long as possible, once you start sanding the first thing to go is obviously the paint, then you have to get rid of all the rust no matter what that takes, some small holes can be filled, but that means it squishes out the other side so it holds. you dont want to have to see it. some small holes can be welded shut, like screw holes. you can not weld rust. once you start to fix your car it sounds like it will be all primer before long. you either have to live with the bubbles for now or buy a grinder, small one is about 80-90 for a dewalt, and find some paddle pads for it, they are the only way to go, they have like 20 little flaps instead of one solid flat peice of stone. maybe they're called flap wheels i forget.
