Well. I Forgot to take progress pics of the rust repair.. But to summerize...
Grind all the Rust, prime, fill (lots of sanding), prime (more sanding), paint (more sanding), clear, wet sand.. Rubbing compound... Polish... Disappear rust spots.....Oh Ya... Removed Fenders and Ordered A to Z fab Rockers... Thanks to ZachV for those.. They are coming.. Got new Fenders Discount Auto Parts $187 for BOTH SHIPPED... There are pretty nice (at LineX) So I never have Rust on them AGAIN
