Next week: how to rebuild the engine using household tools?

Someone (i.e., me) backed the family car into a parking meter a while back, causing a small dent and some cracking in the paint (photo 1, 2, 3). Body shops say this will cost about $600-650 to repair over two days (which is a hassle for my fiancée, who commutes by car). Dealer said over $1000! Main concern is rust, not the dent--this is a hand me down car from 1999. Can we make an acceptable fix ourselves? How? [more inside]

How can I preserve this flaking-paint, wood sign?

I have an old, painted wood sign (pics inside) that I'd love to hang in my house, but the paint is flaking very badly. Is there any way to keep it from deteriorating (at least enough that I don't end up with a pile of paint flakes on the floor) without doing a lot more damage? The (probably non-existent) monetary value of the sign is not of importance. Thanks! [more inside]
