Nice one mate ! But i have to admit that there is NO car with such rust or holes in Greece. You have the space and time we dont have BUT you have the humidity that ruins the metal too....
Only one from 10 Opel Kadetts or similar age models have rust problems or holes ! ! !
I admire your courage and skills to fix all these rust and holes !
To be honest i would like to have a garage like you do as in Athens this is a luxury ....

It's not perfect doing it with the brush but at least you can really work the paint into the surface, ok for the unseen bits.

Until last Christmas I was working outdoors for the previous 20 years a real uphill struggle, I appreciate all the luxury of the garage, it's a dream come true. I'd consider this a very little rust. You're lucky in your climate, make the most of it and keep enjoying those older cars.

Video 16 was tidying up the fuel tank and front valence which was a bit damaged https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ommBegHceYc&index=17&t=5s&list=PLG3xGrGq4VMH4W42B2V9BGjkrk6lcb_68

It will when I spray it, more orange and the faded pink bits disappear laughing
