Rusty truck bed

I'm looking for some ideas or tips some of you may have.....
I have been working on my C10 truck bed removing rust and rotten panels but am not having any luck working on...or I should say in, the stake pockets.They have heavy rust inside them and the bottom side of the bedside as it rolls down into them.
Using a porting set and wire wheels, have managed to get most of the rust out but not all.Seeing down in them and trying to get at the underside of the top is my issue.
I am curious what others have done or should I just cut them off and weld the hole up,which is a cleaner look.I feel like they give support to the top rail so I held off on that route.
If I do get the rust out how do I get paint back in?
Any suggestions?
