The stuff by the door isnt too bad really would probably be an easy fix for a body shop. But in the first pic, that frame rail is pretty rotted out, would more than likly be an expensive fix. But both of those spots are fixable if youve got ebough $$$$$.

You need some POR 15 for most of that. The spot on the rail is probably gonna need replaced.

With rust you got two options, R&R.....Repair or Replace.

POR 15 is some great stuff though.

Oh yea, POR 15 is the best thing since ****. Its awesome stuff, works excellent. Almost like JB weld, thats the only thing i can think of and you just paint it on with a brush and it levels itself out. They also have this new stuff its like a puddy, almost like modeling clay and you just take it and rub it and form it to a rotted out spot and when it sets up its as strong as the metal around it. Then you just sand the excess off with like 80-100 grit sandpaper. You can get it from The Eastwood company. THats probably your best bet besides sand blasting or replacing all those panels.

Good luck...rust sucks.
