Need Ideas to Patch a Rusted Wheelbarrow
 
Any ideas on how to patch a rust hole in a wheelbarrow? The cheaper and simpler the better. Let the brainstorming begin!

Small pieces of sheet metal from a hardware and rivets or self tapping screws to hold them in place.

Haha, I said cheaper!

Fix it water tight ? Or?

Sheetmetal & screws/rivets as stated
Or cheap would be bubble gum/duct tape

Flatten a tin can and screw it down. If you need it water resistant, use some caulk or body putty. Then give the whole thing a heavy coating of rust proofing primer.

clean edges of hole(s) ...duct tape under it, pour on some 2 part JB Weld epoxy steel filler (feather edges to clean areas) and call it a day.
take tape off the next day or leave it there. keep hole level while filler is setting up.
cheap and strong.
