Hi all,
im a new member to the forums and i have jus bought my first FORD FIESTA m-reg MK3.
I picked up this car for very cheap as its got a few problems and isnt in as good as shape as it could be, but this is one reason i bought it as its my second car and i want to spend time on it to get it in shape and then hopefully start to modify it.....

So here's the first problem i need help with....
There is some rust which has now got to the point of slightly corroding the front and back panels underneath the bumpers. So i know i need to fill the holes and hopefully treat the rust somehow before priming, re-painting, etc.
I have been advised to buy some "Isopon P40 fibre glass" [url="http://www.repairproducts.co.uk/userimages/p40a.jpg"]http://www.repairproducts.co.uk/userimages/p40a.jpg[/url].
But was wondering if any1 else knows the best things to use or has had experience doing this before?

THANX ;)

one tipis to make sure ALL rust is removed as it Will come back,,, Id either,,, treat it with chemical rust killer,,, sandblast it off to bare metal with a diy kit, or cut it out and weld in a repair panel,, hope this helps
