Posted this under a previous heading which was a bit crap and didn't really describe the problem, so reposting again.

There's a bit of rust coming up in the bed (right up the front, near where the bolted panel is right behind the window). Also the tiniest bit starting to show under the rear window rubber, and virgin rust (again, just starting) right down on the RH rear quarter behind the wheel.

In the bed is the most serious; there are small holes starting to open up in the panel.

Are there patch panels, floor panels available some place for this? And has anyone tackled similar rust jobs and can give some guidance or warnings on what to expect. In the bed, planning to unbolt the panel and see what's up under there. Someone has previously coated it with that rubberized deck paint which is bad news!

In the bed, I'm kind of expecting to replace a fairly decent chunk (if not all) the floor. Located in Australia so kind of balancing my options. If patch panels aren't available then I'm going to need to fabricate the panels.

Thanks all.
