It can be easily done without welding, by using strong but inexpensive body filler. You can even paint the car yourself. Rust repair is common at the wheel wells and rocker panels of cars and in this video I show the proper and most thorough way to remove and repair rust.

    Gold Filler:
    Adhesive Remover:
    Spot Putty:
    Body Patch Mesh:
    Dust Mask:
    Sanding Block:

    Rust Converter:

    Hello,I have couple minor rust spots I'm patching with a body filler.Then went over it it with glaze putty for smoothness. Can I apply Primer Sealer from Rustoleum over it and leave it or the primer will absorb water and cause rust?Or should I leave it with glaze putty and not prime it to avoid the rust?I'm not trying to have it painted yet just primed.Thanks

    Bruh you need a "cheese grater" also known as a surform planer. Right before the filler really starts to set (maybe 5-7 minutes in) up you can run the cheese grater over it to cut your sanding time in half, at least.

    Thanks man. Just fixed some rust on my son's Toyota after watching this video. Body shop quoted $1900. We fixed it ourselves in just a few days for a couple of hundred bucks. We also had fun doing it! I am in your fan club!
