    you know where the cab floor meets the back floor, well that part of my floor rots out quite badly. i had both corners fixed once but the damn things are going again. when i get them fixed again is there anything that i can do to prevent this from happening again aside from moving to the South?

    Bummer eh?

    There's something over here called Waxoyl that works very well; just spray it on.

    POR-15 works great, or you can do like I did and RhinoLine the whole interior. Seals it up good; no more rust. I did sandblast and primer the whole thing first, though. Nice side benefits are that you can hose out your interior when it gets muddy, it works as a pretty good sound insulator, and also pretty good for heat insulation. I had mine sprayed a little thinner than the normal 1/4" so that I can still use the normal carpet kits if I want.

    I fabbed those pieces out of .070 steel and then used the spray-on undercoating untill I can afford to have the rhinoliner done. No problems so far.
