How to patch rust holes permanently without welding.
Let me start by saying this is a temporary, but cost effective way to clean up a troublesome rust hole on your car, it's always best to replace panels or weld when possible. but if you want to just clean it up for a while and cost is a factor. This video is for you! we eliminate a rust hole on our old 1973 Pontiac Ambulance. And yes, there is a bit more work to be done elsewhere on the car, but we just focus on the worst spot for now ;)

I totally understand that the best way to repair rusted rocker panels or fenders is using welding and patching the hole area with the new sheet metal. But if you can not afford to spend several hundred dollars for that job this is the cheapest approach on how to fix rust holes on your car, truck or van, even if it's temporary(rust will eventually come back). !!! USEFUL TIP: Let the vehicle sit for 1-2 days after you cut the foam. This will prevent cracks in body filler due to foam shrinkage !!!

In this video I filmed from start to finish as I repaired the door sill on my 2009 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg. This is by no means the "right way" to do the job. The only way to completely remove rust is to cut it out and weld in a replacement piece of steel.
