Default Inner Fender Rot? And Tailgate Repair/advice needed

Lifted my carpet and found this. Just curious how should i proceed? this area on my parts car is good so should I cut it out and swap? How much to cut if I do? Thanks for the advice in advance





As you can see it penetrates to the outside a bit.

Heres the tailgate I am going to repair, just need ideas how to fix this.

THe floor board, grind it back and prep it and paint it. Eastwoods makes some goodstuff for treating rust.

The tailgate, I would go to a boneyard and get one with no rust and have it painted.

Agree. I like Krud Kutter to stop rust and you can paint over it.

Ok, Thing is the rust seems to be right at the seam between the floor pan and the inner fender? Where it joins each other. Also not sure if you can see in the picture, But there is a hole that goes to the outside in that seam.

I can see a tiny hole - the rust on the seam doesn't look scary.

Clean all the rust of that metal. then use an etching primer. Use a good seam sealer. And paint it with some Rustoleum paint from all sides. That should keep the seam from getting any worse. The hatch. Well throwing good money after bad. Get a good one.

Thanks for the replies guys, I will try that and post pictures of how it turns out, Should I use roofing tar over it after I do what is suggested?
