    So as I was removing more of the outter rocker, came across something I wasn't expecting. The inner panel of the A pillar comes down and out, sitting on the floor and inner rocker( blue arrows). Part of it was rotten(out lined in red) I made a template of it, then cut some of it out. So the inner A panel metal is fine but the floor/inner rocker it sits on is garbage. Not sure how I'm going to replace the floor/rocker without messing with the A pillar.

    It's difficult to treat rust where you can't get to it, I like Cavity Wax in situations like that. We normally use the 3M products shown below to coat interior spaces that can't be reached using Zero Rust or Picklex.

    Thanks Len, I was looking closer and realized the panel I need was the kick panel. After a little bit of searching, Auto Metal Direct has them, ordered it up.
