So how long did this whole process take? I've got a couple of spots that I would like to pay some attention too. I'll be at my parent'* this weekend (aka i'll have a garage to do everything in). One of the things i was thinking about doing was some minor body work.

I was thinking about prepping the area and applying the rust stopper stuff on Friday night. I don't think i'll need any filler so i was just going to primer, sand, and then paint on Saturday. Does this sound like a reality or am i under-estimating the time?

Good thing is that there is only one spot on the outside of the car that i'm really concerned about. The other spots are on the insides of the door and trunk so they don't need to be perfect just decent.

This takes about 3-4 hours or so... of Labor, time is more like 4-8 hours

You have to clean out the rust spots and pick at them for a while, then dust them out.

Then you put the rust stopper on, glob it on nicely to make sure you cover it well, and use some compress air or Caned Air to blow it up into cracks and tight spaces.

Next you have to let it dry for like 2-6 hours, make sure its tack free...

Then you get some bondo and start to fill the holes in, if the holes are deep then use some aluminum screening to help fill in the hole so that you donít have to use as much Bondo..

let it setup until its hard and cool,(Bondo gets hot when drying)
Then sand.... sand some more, and more.... and some more...

Then if the holes arenít to big and just need some light filling, use the Clay filler maid by bondo, i forget the correct name for it but it comes in a tube...

It feels and moves like clay, you just slap it on let it dry for like 20min or so, then use like 500grit sand paper to smooth it out...


Then Prime and paint....


------------------------

As for where i got that black rust stopper stuf... ill have to ask my dad, but i know you can buy it from Eastwood catilog/website.... no called the same stuff but they sell it, it like $20 a can or so..
