Thumbs down Any one know how to repair rust?

Hey guys, just wondering how to make my old Honda look like new again

The two Rust I want to get at are on the side just above my bumper and a really nasty one right under my passenger door

The way I plan to fix this is

-Rust converter the rust
-sand them till down to bare metal
-Primer
-sand primer so the paint has somthing to hold onto
-Then paint with my cars color (found it online)
-sand with very high grits till smooth as rest of car
-clear coat it
-then wax it

Is this the way to do it fellas? Im very iffy on the the door though....

Sanding by hand will take you a long time. You will need to sandblast the rust off of the metal and then primer and paint.

Well I finally got to it, did other spots as well but just showing the one above to compare




I didnt have money for the rubbing compound, but not bad for a first go at this stuff

(oh yeah when i was sanding the rust it just broke off some peices of the actual metal. I might try and fiber glass it with bondo down the road who knows, uggg why did I have to live where we use salt on the roads )
