Drop by and I can help you all you want.

In seriousness, though, you can ask any questions you have and I'll answer them the best I can. Bodywork isn't all that hard once you practice a little bit with it. I think I have a little bit more of a step by step process in here somewhere but I can make a new one sometime if you'd like.

As for the rust, I'm still trying to figure that one out. Everything I've tried so far only last for a few months before the rust comes back through the paint. This is the first time I covered it with body filler so we will see how that works out.

And for the headlights, try one of the kits from Walmart for headlight restoration; that should get rid of the haze. However, after that, you'll need to reclearcoat the headlights followed by a light sanding and polishing. It will get a much better shine if you do that than if you simply finish with the kit. More details on any of this if requested.

Right from my nearest Walmart. It's the best clear I've used so far and works great on everything. I love it as long as it holds up over time.
