under the vinyl

I just took the vinyl top off my 66 coupe and it is solid rust and the metal is really pitted. What can I do to save some $ before I take it to the body shop to have the holes patched? (Sand, etc) Should I just sand off all of the rust and hit it with primer? It is pretty solid in some spots and real thin in others, as I said there is even some spots where it has rusted all the way through which I need to have a body guy patch. I am not going to put a vinyl top on when I'm done.

Has the body shop seen the damage? If so then use some rust remover to get the rust out. The holes that go all the way thru will need a patch. The entire roof will need to be stripped. Then after all the rust is gone & patches are welded in, prime & start your bondo filling. Then sand, prime, fill, sand, prime etc...
