    how bad is the body work needed, is it just minor or more of an issue. go talk to the paint place and get their professional opinion and see if they do any of the minor work.

    With the primer you can leave it on for a while but if you wait too long you should shoot another coat on there. If you want the car to come out good it would be best to bring it somewhere if you have the money. If you do it yourself make sure you remove all the rust or it will come back. I do not know how the rust converter stuff works but I would try that in places you can't really remove rust from.
