Rust Repairs

Hey Everyone,

How's it going? I've got my '89 Camry in the garage and once again i'm seeking advice from the smart people who frequent this website. Anyway, i've got moderate rust damage around my gas tank and a couple other places. My goal is to clean it up, without paying the costly body shop prices. (Seeing as I'm still a student and all.) I know there's a process that involves sanding, bondo, and fiberglass, but I'd really appreciate a step-by-step breakdown of it.

If anyone could help me with this, i'd be in your debt.

Thanks alot,

Bryan.

lol,

I'm no artist but I made a little diagram to give you an idea. Around the wheel wells it's particulary bad, as it's been rusted down to bare metal. There's also a little bit on the door and the bottom of the car.
