thanks man. body work just time consuming. all i used to make it easier is a power drill non cordless. and i bought some 3M sanding pads they work better. also i used a slide hammer to pull the dents out. I cut the major rust spots out with a dremel tool and cutting discs nocked out the rust with a screw driver. i used some chemical stuff that prevents rust dont know what it is called though. and to smoth out the sanding i used an electric Jitterbug if u know what that is. i think the real name is palm sander

Drix, how did you fill your holes where you had to cut it out? I used fiberglass, it seems to work well but don't know if she'll hold up though. All I did was paint over were the rust spots were (grinded to bare metal, light body fill to smooth,then I painted) do you think that will rust out, or should I use the stop rust stuff first?

My holes were not that big i used bondo. bondo gets heavy though fiber glass is good i dont know how it holds on to the metal though i have never used it. but i know it is flexable and will not break like the bondo. if u have major size hole that u cut out i suggest welding a new piece of metal in there and sanding down the bead so it is smooth. but if your holes are small enough i would just use some bondo. u cant mess it up if u do u can just sand it off and do it agian.
