hey i found a body repair website and they sell some good looking/sounding products.

http://autobodystore.net/Merchant2/m...gory_Code=6RCC

Im thinking that I should cut off the exposed rust then clean the inside as best as i can with the wire brush then spray the picklex on it following the instructions then spraying on the epoxy primer. Then get the new piece of sheet metal MIG welded in and respray with epoxy primer then body fill. For the trunk area I was think to go with metal bonding instead of welding not sure though.

or if the rust is cleaned properly using those products could i just use fiberglass and body filler.
if i could help with the subframe i was thinking to clean it with a wire brush then spray the picklex on it then epoxy primer then a coat of black zero-rust. doing this myself would save me the 500-1000 i dont have

What do you guys think?

You can try that, but subframe needs to be removed to do the work.

yeah thats why im gunna need help with that. I dont think i have the tools for that. 2 is greater than 1. so im going to order the stuff tomorrow and get the materials together and zorin if you can still come after the new year then that would be great. Any body else that would like to come and pitch in or just for input is more then welcome. Teamwork is the best. we have not yet confirmed a date but it will be after new years.

we can call it "PROJECT: SAVE E30"
