Smile My Dirty Little Secret...

So, i thought i would lift up my driver side floor mat and expose a little rust issue.

It looks very minor and it seems to be only in the one spot and looks to be mostly on the "top angle floor pan"!? I am having the truck go in and get the back quarter fixed as i described in an earlier post and thought it might be a good time to deal with this bit!

A) should i just have the bodyman remove that panel and bend something up then refasten it?

B) is there a part number for this panel and where is the best place to order it? (including fasteners, silicon and anything else?)


Any other tips or suggestions would be helpful as i am a newbie. thanks!

YRM metal supplies in the uk makes all the panels, catch is they don't ship to the USA, But both Doug and I are sending vehicles to the USA this month, and I am planning on sending a 40' container next month.

wire wheel it and paint. you are far from needing to replace anything.

I've seen worse scratches. Heck I'd even try some steel wool and screw the painting!

Nah, not silly -- it's always good to keep an eye out for rust/corrosion. That could get ugly in a few years if you're in the wrong climate. Like others have said, I'd wire brush it and get some POR-15 on it. Then throw the mat back in and forget it.
