How do I fix this?

This is a picture of my drivers side door sill. Passenger side is the same. Is this fixable or do I need to buy new?

What many do is cut that rusty tube off that is holding the lower door seal and switch to the new style which attaches to the bottom of the door instead.

Essentially as Doug said. I *believe* that "tube" is just spot-welded on, so in theory you can find and drill out the spot welds to make removal of the tube a little easier. Then maybe smooth out the spot weld holes with a dab of bondo and repaint.

I've been planning to do this same thing on the 130, but just haven't "gotten around to it".

The NAS Defender 90 sills are galvanized but the NAS 110 sills are not, right? I could swear mine are galv but that I've seen some of the flippers fill in the area with bondo on NAS 110s (it looked terrible, btw) and covered with fresh paint.

Correct, galvy on the NAS90 but the NAS110s still have that tube/lip. If you want to remove that lip, you're going to have exposed spot-weld holes so filling it is probably the best option (though I'm not a big fan of bondo either). I *think* Barry did this on his old NAS110 if I recall, and when done right it doesn't look bad. In my opinion, it's much better than the hideous lip/tube (and that is prone to catch moisture/etc anyhow).

Correct I did it and moved the seals to the bottom of the doors.

The issue is where does the rust stop. My truck was fairly rust free. I removed the lip and grinded the meta down. It then looked all pock marked but was easily fixed with a light skim of bondo followed by paint.

doing a quick bondo search by your name pulled this up.

and wow this old gem! I love how much bondo is on your old truck and how quickly this thread went downhill.

Those were the classic Barry days. He has mellowed considerably with age.

Take the old one out and replace it with a new galvy one.. powder coat it too if you want. I'd be making sure that the corrosion didn't get any farther than that, like to your floor. Just say NO to bondo ... not a fan.
