Ey guys, I may have been a little quick in saying that my new project Wagoneer 1966 had almost no rust. Yesterday after removing the whole front clip and fenders I found two bad spots which are hidden by the fenders. These are the bottom corners on the front bottom part of the cabin... I will need to cut some metal to repair the rust there. I am debating if I would need to find a good solid piece if metal from a donor truck to repair mine or if I should simply mold some metal to patch these areas and "delete" the air vents from the interior kick panels.... For those that have dealt with this repair in the past what would you advice? What is the purpose of the vent anyways? In most of the older cars I have owned these have been mainly a point of problem with corrosion.

Did I mentioned that the previous owners concept of repair is a little questionable... He filled the entire vent area with expandable liquid foam... I have been trying to clean that up to evaluate the extent of the rust.
