Bottle of fiberglass resin, package of fiberglass cloth, and some 3M rubberized undercoating, for a grand total of $24.00 I went this route as a Suggestion of a buddy who runs a body shop. He did, of course say the only way to permanently stop and prevent it is to cut out the rust, weld in new metal, and paint. But, he said "its not a show car or anything and this will hold for a long time, for short cash" which is why I bought that stuff.. I'm hopefully doing it all on thursday after work, I'll let you guys know how it goes!

Since you've got such a large sheet of fiberglass, cut away at the rust anyway and then run thin strips of wire or something over the hole to hold the fiberglass thing in place. Then you'll have it last even longer. Also, practice on something before you try the real thing. Fiberglass is a nasty thing to get on your hands. Have some gloves?

Haha yess I have gloves, I've used it before when I shaved the roof racks off of my buddys 95 s10 Blazer, got much practice in then, 8 holes! Came out nice and is still holding strong 2years later, I definitely could use practice as I'm probably a little rusty(no pun intened lol)...

I had to drive the car today to get to college, had no other option. And, of course, it was raining. Quick vid of the leak with NO beackseat, fills up much quicker lol, if I went above 45 it would actually shoot straight through onto the door panel and back of the passenger seat, rather than a steady leak..

The rush was because we Left for Spring break friday the 13th and got there on saturday, which was my 21st birthday!! There was 7 of us, we took two cars. We went from where I live(MA) to Myrtle Beach SC. 17hours each way, stayed for one week. (yes, my other ******* friends brought a prius, avg 45mpg) My Lesabre did a Best of 27.4 mpg, and a worst of 24.8, which had combined around town. pretty damn good for a 94! Made the trip with NO issues, drove almost 2k miles in one week! The only pic I took of the place, which just happened to have my LeSabre in it! Looks pretty good with the 16" chrome Caddy wheels.. Let me know what ya think!
