A little rust repair

DSCF8930DSCF8929DSCF8931DSCF8932DSCF8934DSCF8935DSCF8936This Chevy is in the shop to get a rust spot fixed. First we ground off the paint to see what was really going on. We then cut out what was bad to see what  was going on behind the rust. The inner panel was in pretty good shape, so we just cleaned that up and prepped it for the patch. We then made a nice piece to fit in the area we cut out and welded it up taking care not to warp the sheet metal around it. Once it was welded up completely we used a product called all metal to start the repair process. Once that was blocked out we finished the repair with body filler. Once that was straight we prepped the area for primer.  Before we left for the day, we were able to block out the primer and prep the rest of the panel for paint. We plan on getting it painted in the morning.
