110 Bulkhead rust

I have two sections of rust on each side of my truck under the windshield and I know it should be an easy fix. I have had the hinges off and the rust seems superficial. http://eastcoastrover.com/93phase3.html

My question is how hard would it be to fix the rust in my passenger foot well. Seems the previous owner did some mickey mouse patch behind the ecu. Also I noticed I have a small hole the diameter of a pencil in the floor. I have been thinking about fixing this stuff because it truely would make my truck rust free once repaired. Can this stuff be fixed without pulling the bulkhead? Would I need a new footwell? The sides are good.

Pull the floor boards and see, but as there are two or three layers of steel there, it is probably worse than it looks.

Here is the right way to fix it.

Depending on how bad it is, you could probably grind the rust away and then POR 15 and paint it and it would last longer. Also, spray undercoating on the outside where the front tire kicks up stones at that area.

So it can be done correctly without pulling the bulkhead. Mine doesn't go up the sides if that makes it easier. The under ECU part looks like a bitch

The under ECU part is actually pretty easy to fix if it is below where the dash mounts.

Assuming (and it is a big assumption which you can maybe see if it is correct from the other side) they removed all the rust on the upper patch, the repair is not that bad and with the trim panel in place should be invisible.

I have been looking at their stuff. Looks good. Because this stuff needs to be painted it will be done at a land rover autobody place. I guess I am wondering what this should run to fix under the windshield and the floor if I do it all at once
