My brother is a car body man and with his friends cars that don’t care how it looks – he stuffs the hole with trash/what-not and then fills it with car bondo/body-filler (you can buy it at Wal-mart or Auto-zone). You can sand this down if you want and use auto primer and then paint. I have also seen him use fiber-glass sheets and cut to a little larger than hole and then use what it called “Tiger-hair” of fiber-glass filler – then sand down, primer, paint. Doing it this way – the rust will not come back. It is harder to sand though.
