How To Do A Rustoleum Roller Paint Job For $70 And A Cheap Way to Fix Rust Holes $20
For $100 I put a quick patch job on this tired old Chevy Truck and plan to flip a quick buck. Rolled on a coat of Rustoleum and patched up the huge rust holes in the cab corners. They're notorious for rusting out. Got some aluminum flashing for housing ($10), buy the guttering dept in Lowes, Home Depot, etc. It's thin and easily shaped and cut with standard scissors. Clean the rust deposits out from the site. Set some jack stands down. Cut a piece of the thin aluminum to length and set it on top of the jackstands almost touching the rusted area. Get a can of High Strength Window sealent or Great Stuff ($4 at home depot) as it's called. Start foaming the area in and piling layer over layer of sealent on top of the aluminum. Once it is built up, fold the aluminum up and set jack stands over to keep it help up. The foam will expand and is extremely sticky when wet. Wear gloves! Once it's had a day to set, pull off the aluminum and saw off the excess with a hack saw blade or knife. Sculpt it to form and check the results. Can drill out holes in the aluminum, place it on and put screws to hold the aluminum on the foam once dryed.

apply a second coat. Then it should be finished. Quick, cheap and easy.

4 Minutes: How To Fix Rust Holes For $30 On A Car or Truck
How to fix rust holes for cheap! Easy way to patch up and over rust holes.
If you already have a grinder, the materials only cost @ $30. You'll
A grinder or cutting wheel, air or electric - $20
Sheet metal - $10
80-400 grit sandpaper - $7
Bondo - $10
Flexible bondo applicator - $3
Rough up the area around the rust hole with the sandpaper. Get anything
that is flaky or falling apart, off. Measure the rust area you want
covered, leaving enough area for the bondo to adhere. Measure and cut the
sheet metal to length. Sand both sides of the sheet metal. Mix up the
bondo. Apply the bondo to the back of the sheet metal, not to thin but not
to thick either. Press the patch panel on the area and hold until it
stays. You may want to spread bondo around the edges to smooth it some.
If you can get to the inside of the panel, you may be able to apply the
sheet metal to the inside and smooth out using bondo on the outside.
Yes, it WILL be noticable but the alternative is buying a new fender, truck
bed, door, hood, etc. That or have it professionally welded which is very
expensive. This is a cheap do-it-yourself project you can get done quickly
and easily. I've had these patch panels up on my truck for a year and a
half as of this video. NONE have fallen off or even seemed to be loose.
So it works.
