My poor alltrac, someone decided that drilling lots of holes in it was a good idea to put lots of screws in the floor pans and take the paint away. I assume that they were grounding something. So, now I get to deal with the holes and surface rust. Suggestions for removing rust, filling holes, and preventing future rust? (These are mostly in the trunk/under the back seats)

Take it down to bare metal with a wire wheel attachment on a grinder or drill.
Remove/cut out any rust.
Weld in new pieces of metal where needed.
Paint with POR15.
Never worry about it again. ;)

Welding...

Act like Celica owners do shit the right way...

Grind it down to metal, paint the backside with some POR 15, put a piece of duct tape over it. From the front side fill it with some glass or bondo. Feather and finish. Shit will be good for years.

Also a viable option for sure if welding is not a skill/unavailable.

My brother's Celica is a case study on how to shit the cheap way, and still have a reliable as f*** machine.

She is inspiration.

A gallon of high abrasion appliance paint, some galvanized pipe halves as rocker panels, expanding styrofoam, and adhesives. The thing is built like a homemade tank.
