First little foray into rust repair was successful. I wasn’t able to paint due to the threat of rain, but I should be able to paint tonight with POR 15. Thank to Opponaut 505turbeaux for all the help on this project so far.

I didn’t grind up too high, because I want to get a feel for the painting process before I try to arrest the paint peeling off the fender.

For 12 years of rust belt, I gotta say, my car is doing really really well. I used a wire wheel on a drill, which is a little slow but I prefer it because it gets out of hand a lot less than a grinder. Given this is most definitely amateur hour...that’s probably for the best.
