I've started to get rust on the cab corner section of the drivers side
rocker on my 1995 extended cab Chevy truck. I thought it was from
stone chips taking off the paint. I was looking at the rusty spot, and
it is right under the side window. I checked the window and found the
seal to be loose. Could the window be leaking, and letting water into
the back side of the metal? Would this cause the rocker to rust out,
or is it more than likely just rocks chipping away the paint?
I would still be driving my 88 if it weren't for rust. My cab rusted under
the doors and corners, then the floor pan rusted. Then the gas tank
rusted, then the radiator.
POR-15 is something that I have turned up when I searched for rustproofing.
As soon as I pay off the loan on my 2000 I'm going to start disassembeling
one part at a time and painting it.
yup, POR-15 is good stuff. After you get your cab corners replaced, remove
your storage buckets in the ext. cab interior and just pour some along each
side. Be careful, though, because it's pretty expensive!
