Check for Rust *Bulkhead...

Is there a simple way to check the bulkhead for rust?

This project shows where they commonly rust:

Look in those areas to see if you find rust on the subject truck.

If you pick up the floor mats and see a lot of rust that means its pretty far gone.

They also rust at the top under the seal for the windscreen.

Last Sunday when I changed my vent seals, I noticed some paint bubbling slight rust along the base of the exterior screen after I took off the vents. I sanded them down and used touch up paint. Just an area to look at.

Guys,

I really appreciate the guidance here. Just found some rust within the rear crossmember & within the battery box. The chassis other than what's on the crossmember looks good. As for the battery box, now has a hole just under the battery from me cleaning it out. Rest of the box looks fine. Yeeesss I changed the direction of the battery so it will not drop through. So far from what I can see the bulkhead should be fine. Under the mats no rust present and the seams on the floorboard appear to be good. I will check the other areas you guys listed. Thanks again for the help!!!
