Rear Tub Questions

On my 95 ST I had to cut one of the bolts that holds the rear bench seat bracket in place. The bracket was on the drivers side and is was the rear seat rests on when it is not folded forward. When cutting it, I scratched up the side of the tub a bit and I want to fix it primarily to prevent rust. Does anyone have any advice regarding touching the area up? My skills are fairly limited so I am strongly considering taking it to a body shop to have it properly painted. I want to put the bench back in only I've cleaned up under the rubber mat. Any opinions as to how I should go abou replacing the hardware- its pretty rusted. Should I go to the local hardware store?

Also, to protect the rear tub I have a rubber matt. I find that dirt and water get trapped under it. Does anyone have a better alternative? I'm leaning away from having it Rhino-lined. I was thinking about having the local canvas guy make a two piece matt that I can remove without having to take out the bench and all the hardware.

Any advice or insight would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Charles

Tub is aluminum - no rust. Touch up paint available through multiple online sources. Soaking rusted bolts with Kroll works well, but sometimes cutting is required. Rhinolining is an option, but it will cover everything semi-permanently

Thank you. So if I don't touch up the scratches the only issue would be the appearance. It wont affect anything else?

Charles,
I had a local paint shop make me up a couple of cans of spray paint. Just give them the LR paint code. Do a search to get the factory code for blue. I ended up touching up a number of places inside the truck particulary the floorboards.
