What truck cab doesnít have a rust issue along the lower rear edge? I had the cab up on its nose so I could get a better angle to work on this area. Have you ever used a scaffolding to do body work? I cut some more pieces off that leftover door panel and formed some replacement patches.

I then clamped the patch and welded it into place. A little grinding and some more Rust-Oleum primer to flood the back and inside of the seam to seal it up. Not too bad for a rookie body guy.

The front lower cowl was rusted ob both sides. I cut a small piece of scrap from the leftover door panel. After cutting a curve to copy the curve on the cab I started to work the bend with a crescent wrench and then to my shrinker then back to the crescent wrench then shrinker and so on until I was satisfied with the shape of the patch. I then took some time to cut and fit the patch into the cab.

Driverís door had some rust along the lower edge. I got a door skin online but it didnít fit right up at the lower bead. So I cut it down and worked it in at the lower hinge. I cut a curve on a piece of 2x4 to back up the metal when I welded it. I used some Rust-Oleum rusty metal primer and flooded the back side of the seam to allow it to flow into all the nooks and cranes to help prevent water from getting in
