Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in, no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process... Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially, there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...

How to Fix Surface Rust on a Car
This Caravan has been repaired before and is starting to rust along the bottom edge of the door. It appears that someone has installed a door skin before and the didn't do the best job in the world. The rust along the bottom can be removed but nobody can guarantee the rest of the door won't do the same thing over time as nobody knows to what degree this door was butchered before.
To start you will want to use either a grinder or a paint stripping wheel to remove as much as possible. Once you are at your limit with the stripping wheel move on to your spot blaster to remove the rust not accessible with the grinder. A little bit of putty was applied to level out the area a tad however I think it was wobbly to begin with, the whole door bottoms are like this from the skin being incorrectly installed. This type of repair will get the guy down the road but without stripping the whole door who knows what will happen. We can not guarantee this kind of work but given the cost of redoing someone elses work it is not in the budget for this customer. Lesson learned, have it done right the first time.
Poor Man's Body Repair Part 1
I have to do major body work on our 1990 Ford Econoline, I can't afford to have it done at a body shop.
Plus it would cost more than the van is worth, so being a jack-ass of all trades and a master of none, I have to do the job myself.
I have been doing body work for years on all the old cars I have owned in the past.
I use galv. sheet metal and pop rivets and rusty metal primer and Bondo.
This video is MY WAY, the poor man's way of fixing the body rot, it has to be done, the van runs good but the body is going to hell.
Soooo...If any of you that ARE in the body shop business and want to be a critic, please don't, I do not have a garage or the equipment or the MONEY to do it the RIGHT way.
To do it the right way would tie up the van for weeks, we drive the van almost every day.
This video is for you do-it-yourselfer's out there.
