'79 F350 Supercab rust repair?

Howdy, a year ago I purchased a '79 F350 Supercab 4x4 out of Cali. I got it shipped home and ten minutes off the truck into the barn it went. Until two weeks ago it sat there waiting its turn. Now that Ive actually took the time to give it some attention I've become a little concerned with the rust around the drip rail. Im pretty handy with mechanical work and I am willing to try some body work but I don't think have the time to learn how to become good enough to fix this myself. My plan is to restore this pickup to as close to original as possible. I'm kinda worried I got myself in to deep and have been debating if I should go ahead with it or sell it to somebody with better resources that me. I'm looking for everybody's advice here at what I'm looking at to get this cab fixed. Is it possible, what kind of money could I be looking at, am I better off looking for a new cab or a whole new pickup? Click the image to open in full size.

This one really put a damper on my first project. I wanted to replace the back glass.
