    Ive been doing the same thing over the past couple of days mine hadn't got that bad. Make sure you get some underseal and paint all over the inside of those arches to stop it from getting chipped and rusting more. Good luck on the spraying.

    how did you fill it then? and what did you use for the arches, standard body filler?

    are you spraying yourself?

    Can still laquer it up even when its flat, finnishes it off.

    Thats why Kiwi and Tornado Red (flat colours) suffer from laquer peel

    Not a bad repair for a diy job but I wouldn't be happy with that and would have gone to the bodyshop. But all depends what you use the car for and it looks 100% better than rust :)
