Been working on my buddies 97 F150 and thought I'd share some pics.

Had to cut this much out to get all the rust. I cleaned up the rust behind it and treated with Rustoleum rust reformer.

Welded in a patch I cut out of a subaru hood.

After a skim of filler and a couple coats of undercoating. I chose undercoating over bedliner because it said it was paintable and the bedliner did not.

I decided to replace the rocker, which requires bed removal. Here's how I pulled it off working by myself

The frame had some spots that were pretty rusted. Took the pressure washer to it.

Used an air chisel as a needle scaler to remove the big chunks and treated with this stuff.... hope it lasts. It seemed to seal things up well, I am optimistic.

Then on to the rocker replacement.

Drilled out about 100 spot welds and cut the old rocker out. This is the old and new one laying on the floor. New one came from LMC for a little under $250 shipped

I made a thread with some old pics of my dumptruck I ran across too. Thought I'd add a link in case someone wants to see a floorpan repair.
