    My CUCV floor was totally shot on the driver's side, you could see the road going by. I have no idea what I'm doing, but we managed to fix it up fairly well. We replaced the worst of it, then I slathered Rust Bullet over the rest of it. I think it should hold up fairly well. I'll post the "finished" pics in the next post since I used up my 5.

    Nice work. What's your opinion of Rust Bullet? Does it seem durable?

    I think I like it. So far so good. There is one spot on the lower rocker that is bubbling up, but I really, really didn't prep that spot, so I can't really blame the RB. I like how it applies better than POR15. Water beads on it once it cures too, which seems good.

    Looks to be a valid repair.
    Nice work.

    What did you do underneath?

    I just globbed a ton of seam sealer into all the cracks and then slathered rust bullet everwhere. So far so good.

    Looks good. If you're not going to paint it why not throw some Bedliner on there to finish it off?

    There's a good chance I will eventually. I've got bigger fish to fry at the moment, like getting the rust to stop around the rear wheel openings. Rustoleum rust reformer sure failed quickly - I ordered more rust bullet.

    Did you do the welding? If so, very clean welds from what I can see. I am currently in the same situation but throwing the idea back and forth if I should just buy new panels completely or try to salvage what's there. Good work either way!

    P.S. What is the stuff (3rd & 4th picture - looks like foil?) you used to form the door liner?

    I'm not sure exactly what you're looking at, but I bought a new door sill piece and welded that in, it was unpainted and kind of shiny. Other than that, it's all rust bullet paint, which is similar to POR-15, but easier to work with IMO.
