Help treating rust and corrosion

04 June 2009 - 03:01 PM

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.repairpro...images/p40a.jpg.
But was wondering if any1 else knows the best things to use or has had experience doing this before?

THANX;)

Im 20 years old, living in Salford/Manchester and I own a 95 1.1 Fiesta MK3. This is my second car and i actually bought it for a very cheap price as it has a few things needed doin to it, which i am hoping to do myself with all your help! :).
