    I will have everything in epoxy before i start with any bondo work, its good to have it as a base under to keep moisture away from the metal.
    We do this on most repairs
    When mine finally goes to the body shop I'll have them re do a lot of what I've attempted. I wish I had just saved and sent it to a body shop in the first place.

    I would still say this van isnt too bad when it comes to the rust, just a couple of spots that has rotted. I went further with this repair than most would have. But now i know the rust is gone.
    I have a bit of OCD when it comes to this stuff haha

    Yeah sometimes its better to spend the money and have people with the right know how to do it.

    Awesome repair, I struggled with that corner as the cavity wax kept dripping out and you can't weld wax
