1969 Camaro Restoration project - Rust repair on the fenders

Before we are ready for primer we need do make a few more rust repairs on the fenders

First step is to cut out the rust

Then it has to be cleaned up and it's good idea to also cover the underlying metal with a weld through and rust proof primer


Next a piece of 18 gauge sheet metal is cut to match the size of the hole, the best way in this case is to butt weld it in

A previous repair was done very poorly, back in the day it was practice to drill holes in the sheet metal to improve Bondo adhesion

The proper way to fix this is to remove all the Bondo. Then put some sheet metal behind and weld through the metal.

Here is another repair
