    Be carefull with all metal filler. It does not expand and contract well with heat changes. I would stick to the basics here.
    1. Sand blast
    2. Make sure metal is not to thin
    3. If it is and you want this hood cut out the rust spot and weld in new metal off another hood
    4. If metal is not to thin epoxy it. Fill with quality plastic filler, seal prime and then filler primer.

    That hood looks great as is...if it's original metal I would keep it with the car. The rust looks very minor from what I can see. Some good quality body-work and you will never know it was there, and it will last for years to come...I am sure. Just my two cents.

    Thx! I think after I treat it should be almost gone. What's epoxy ? I don't know what it is. Is it sprayed onto surface of rust before I do filler of any kind? I saw a can of it last night at store . I don't know if that's what I need . Is said it stoped rust further. Was vht epoxy frame paint ,at pep boys.

    Do you plan on having a body shop paint this? if so I would ask them what coatings are compatible with the paint systems they use before doing anything.

    I won't be painting. Just need get something on it so it won't surface rust over next few months of winter. Im going to dust it with some etch primer and leave it up to body shop.

    Metal 2 Metal filler is what I would recommend. I am a body guy as well as a harness builder and I've used it before without any issues. I'd suggest saving that GM hood no matter what-it will always be a better fit that anything aftermarket.
