Sit back, grab a soda and listen.

If you want a nice car, you better have some time on your hands because this won't be a few hour thing with all you want to do.

First question: For surface rust sand it off annd if its not pitted you can simply sand it off to the bare metal and prime it. If its pitted refer to the same named post in this section.

2. If it is rusted through you need to make a patch panel out of sheetmetal and weld it in then smooth it with body filler like bondo or fiberglass or metal 2 metal.

3. No if you mix the filler correctly and apply it correctly it will not "pop out" in a year. Body filler should only be applied no more than 1/4" thick, but many have applied it thicker and it lasted just fine, but its not recomended.

4. Centari is a fine paint. Look back in this section there is a previous post about it.

5. No do not fill wholes with newspaper and put bodyfiller over them. Its been done, but its neither recomended/good or correct. Fill these holes with sheetmetal welded into place and smooth with body filler, small holes like emblem holes cn be filled with bodyfiller if backed with something like tape, but welding is recomeneded.

If you need more help feel free to contact me through e-mail.
