The correct method would be to remove all of the rusty metal and weld in new sheet metal, welding the entire seam. If the old tub has enough damage in enough areas then it might be more work than you care for, and the best solution could be to find a better tub.

Yeah, I can believe that.

I guess what it comes down to is how much time and effort you want to put into repairing it the right way. I have seen threads here on tub repair that showed am amazing degree of numerous and precise sheet metal repairs on rusty tubs. I've seen people just repair some of the more visible and problem-prone areas. I've also read descriptions of people pulling out plywood, roofing flashing, and cardboard that were riveted or glued over the rust holes

newbjeep its funny you say that about a bronco, when I bought my 71 the PO welded sheet metal over top of the old floor and then used some kind of floor covering to cover it all up!!! finaly i just decided to take the whole tub off and go to town with an angle grinder and a sawzaw to get rid of the old crap. I understand trail rigging things but some of the crap people do never seems to suprise me
