    welding is ALWAYS better than bondo whenever possible.

    well, if its just a badge holes, shouldnt take anymore than a few mins to weld up, then grind smooth with a standard 90* grinding wheel or similar tool. Then depending on how smooth the grinds are, you may only need a little glazing and sand it smooth, or at worse a very thin coat of bondo or similar product and sanded smooth, really shouldnt be all that hard....

    best way to remove rust that i have found is sandblasting.

    i was gonna sand blast it but its not big enough to blast......its only a couple little spots by the fenders, i dont feel like taking them off....the dremmil and a drilll bit and a little hand sanding is working fine for now.....i have 1 side primed now i have to get my lazy ass outside to do the other.
