1st what is your plans for the car .
are you going to drive it almost every day ?
only on nice weekends ?
are you going to do car shows ?
if your going to show it will you be only doing shows ?

then how far has the ruct gone in the car . the hole car is rusting from what i can see .
but will it sand off with 80 grit DA sand paper on a da sander set on it grinding mode ?
if not you will have to have the car blasted with a fine sand of plastic media .

after the car is back to clean metal you will want to use a etch or epoxy primer and spray all the bare metal with it . use a chromated E-prime only two coats max of E-primer .
you then can do your body work over the top of the E-primer .

when your doing your body work try not to do more than one or two panels at a time . that way you will have less metal open ti the air that will start to rust again . once your finished with your body work spray on another coat or two at most of your E-primer again chromated . then your filler primer over the top of that . you can do that as a wet on wet application just let the products flash off for 10 to 15 minutes between the coats . the more coats you apply the longer the flash times will need to be so by your last coat of primer you may want to wait about 15 to 20 minutes for proper flashing . you will know when it's flashed off right by the shin of your primer . it will have a dull look to it and not look wet any more .
if you put to much primer on at one time (to many wet coats over the top of each other ) it will peal or delaminate down the road of just give bad over all adhesion and chip very ez .

then when your car is all primed you can then dry or wet sand it for sealers and top coats .
