Why so many rust holes? Can it be fixed with bondo?
@Alaskan there are several big rust spots!? Glasses off ? It'll be a good project!
Do you all have old vehicles without rust???
Up here all things old, unless carefully cared for, turn into Swiss cheese. The truck we bought has WAY more solid metal than most, not at all Swiss cheese.
We live on the ocean, and then whatever the borough uses on the roads in the winter.... and whenever roads are sanded, beach sand is used (so salty).
So, for an old vehicle, that is considered good shape for up here!
Kid 3 will weld a plate over each of the really bad corners... to try to keep water and ice from splashing into the cab.
And then yes, bondo or what all for some of the smaller cabin holes.
I see no reason to touch the bed holes...the bed has a real nice liner in it to keep stuff in.
Luckily all of the supports and engine mounts, as well as the gas tank and pipe into the gas tank look full on solid metal! Hurrah!
