Rust!!!! Please help!!!!

I have a spot on my fender where my factory flares used to be that is rusting. I took it to a body shop for an estimate to get it fixed and he told me around $700. Hes talking like the half to cut half my panel out to patch it. Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't look like that much work would need to be done to fix it. Any suggestions on how to proceed or do it myself would be appreciated. I also plan on doing a bed liner on the fenders and rockers soon.

Lol thanks. I cleaned it up with a wire brush and some light sand paper.

Then used this stuff. Says for use on heavy rusted areas.


After it dries real good im gonna use this on the outside part and then maybe just do the bed liner stuff over it.

Yea if I had to pay 700 for a repair I'd rather just buy a whole new bed for 1000

I'll take 6!!! And sell them all to a junk yard for 2000 a piece. They will sell them for 3000 each.

To the OP, that "fix" you did will last about 6 months. The rust is starting from the inside and working out. You need to cut out the old rotted piece and put in new metal. 700 is cheap to do both sides and repaint it

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Rust!!!! Please help!!!!

Rustolium will not stop the rust. I restored muscle cars for years. I used a product called POR15. Got it from Eastwood products. It has a chemical in it that will STOP the rust. Always had great results.
