    Replace the entire rear floor is what I would do. There is definitely no half ass way to fix that.

    It's not hard to do, just takes a while to get all of the old rusty parts out.

    I was looking at the same things through LMC and JC Whitney. Looking at like 300 dollars. If you find a cheaper place to get it all please post it here or PM me. Thanks
