Try getting it as clean as you possibly can (good dish shop wash or two), and then a coat or 4 of Liquid Glass. It'* been said that'* what the used car dealers do...

Let'* see it, so we know what we're talking about...

But start by yelling at it. Won't help the rust much (unless you have a really high or really low voice), but you should feel better for a while.

OUCH!!! That'* gonna take some work. If you know someone who can weld and shape metal, you're golden.

A cheaper alternative that I have used is to cut out the rusted part. Build a mold of what it used to look like with tape. Fill with spray foam. Let dry, and shape. The fiberglass, prime and paint. No where near as good as a real repair, but it'* do-able with little to no skill and a tight budget.

something tells me that if you pull your carpet back your going to find all sorts of cancer. the best way to fix this would be to go find a donor car, cut out all the panels you need and then have a shop weld in the new stuff. the only correct way to fix that.

Where in WI are you located? I paint on the side. Looks like you got typical clearcoat peel you see on cars made in the late 80'* mid 90'*, and that needs to be stripped off and repainted. I painted my car a lower priced single stage urethane (omni) in 2001 and its really held up well, other then rust coming back through because I didn't want to cut out every single bad spot of metal, or I would be doing it forever on a car that really isn't worth a ton. Red is known to fade quicker then other colors, so a base clear urethane would probably be the best. There isn't much you can do with that other then repainting it. Still got my bonny, but its just been sitting since there is really too much to fix on it. Right after I painted it, the engine spun a bearing so I had that machined and I put in a rebuild kit, But now it just needs too much stuff fixed to be worth it.
