Treating rust and corrosion

3 posts in this topic

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" http://www.repairproducts.co.uk/userimages/p40a.jpg.

But was wondering if any1 else knows the best things to use or has had experience doing this before?

THANX ;)
