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...

poor man's floor pan (1)
Part one of a floor pan fabrication for the 66 Chevy Caprice.
Aftermarket pans were around $100 each and
still didn't cover all the area I needed to replace.
I got the sheet metal for free from an industrial
shelving unit I found. It's the same gauge too!
Tools are from Harbor Freight or Homemade.
Fiberglass Resin Jelly (my experience) to repair rust in my car
I have used fiberglass resin in the past to repair rust holes in my car,
these are common around the wheels, in truck cabs and other areas where
road salt is a problem.
I tried this new product from Bondo (a 3M company) called Fiberglass Resin
Jelly. This product was very difficult to use with the fiberglass cloth and
I do not think you can use it with the fiberglass mat because it is a thick
cream and almost a paste. I had to butter the fabric on both sides and the
working time was less than five minutes, I think I was wasting more
fiberglass resin jelly than I was using. I found that the fiberglass resin
jelly can be sanded in less than an hour.
I am using the jelly formula as a base of my repair and will be using the
liquid fiberglass resin to topcoat the repair with at least two more layers
and most likely four to five layers in the largest repair area to have a
This repair will last longer than the car if the bad metal is removed,
otherwise the rust will continue to grow under the fiberglass resin. This
is a reasonable solution for rusted body panels on your car. Some people
say that welding new metal into your car is the proper way to fix it. Keep
in mind that cars are disposable and have no value beyond Kelly Blue Book,
I found this out after my car was in a wreck and Progressive offered me
less than what it would cost to get another car in reasonable running
