Bondo will not help. To permanently rid your car of rust, it has to be removed by grinding or sanding. If it's too deep to remove, the rust is cut out and new metal is welded in place. --- Bondo is used as a thin coat on the surface to even the repair area.

no man just grind it down and if it doesnt come off, just weld another peice of metal. then put bondo to even everything out.
