I have noticed some rust starting on the rear wheel arches. Its pretty minor really, I pulled off all the rotten metal and there are now holes about the size of a quarter. Did some more digging around underneath and there is a strip of rust just underneath, where the bumper meets the car. Obviously water/salt gets trapped under the bumper and doesn't do too much good.. That bit is about an inch deep and extends all the way across.

Ive fixed rust with bolting on scrap metal, jb weld, bondo etc on other cars but its never came out looking that great before. I want to do it right on my 245, so any tips?

Also any tips on paint/how to colour match? The brown shade is a nightmare to find the right colour paint..
