This is a really nice one, i've used it personally and it has good results:

harbor freight sells these too, for way cheaper, but you have to be careful because they can burn through. I'd advise you not to drill holes....then you have to weld.

Harbor freight has a stud gun for 100 bucks? Hmmm... And both ways work fine and have worked fine for years. You don't "need" to weld, you can use body filler. How do you think they did it in the 80s?

and why do you think so many of those jobs rusted back out? you should only use body filler to fill small dents just to even it back out. never to fix rust or to fill a hole in. it wont last that way.

No don't just fill holes with bondo thats an awful idea. If the right weld and corrosion protection is put on the fix should be fine. If you just don't throw bondo over a hole or be read on the first cold day for it to want to crack out of place.

It's been done for years, and I've seen paint jobs last years like that.
