69 bed rust repair options

Postby prdjr1 » Sun Dec 31, 2017 3:08 pm

I have a 69 f100 short bed tham i'm getting ready for paint-I came accross this rust when media blasting.it looks might it might have been repaired with lead or something at one time.there is a small 2"x2" metal patch piece attached on the underside of this area that is loose and i slightly pryed it away.my question is if you can tell from the pictures if i should cut this area out and patch it or can i get away with some POR15 and fill it.It's really close to the seam and thats where i'm concerned with patching it.

After going to the trouble or expense to blast the whole bed, I would go ahead and cut it out and weld in a patch. Anything else would eventually trap moisture and rust again IMHO.

True story. I agree.
