how to repair this.

Sorry if this has been covered before but I am curious on any given door really there is obviously going to be rust. When the skin is not removed how do you go about treating th rust or do you? Another issue I notice is right where the skin wraps around the shell the skin is buldged out due to rust between the skin and the shell. What the best way to fix this as well? Thanks

Thats usually on the door bottom and if its starting to blow out in spots the rest of the door bottom isnt far from there either.the best way is to replace the whole door bottom and do any repairs to the inner structure while its apart.epoxy everything before putting it back together..its pretty advanced work but its not too hard ,you'll need a welder and a flanger.Its a good little prodject if your going to do it yourself.Just take your time and ask a lot of questions.

Yeah i've got the equipment to do it and have done things simular, just was curious as to exactly what others are doing. Now in spots where it is bulged out but the outer skin isn't rotter through can you peel the skin back and clean out the rust or just easier to cut it out? Now what if you have a door that obviously rusted inside but the skin doesn't come off do you guys still clean up the rust somehow? Thanks for the info!
