Man i tseems like every single time i take something out of my truck to see what kind of shape it's in underneath, i find more damn rust??? what's the easiest way to patch all of this rust, so it will either permanently kill it or atleast slow it way down. People say Toyota's are bad for rusting?? my last toyota had half the rust of this 85 blazer and it was 4years older and driven one heck of alot harder? Today i removed the rear panels off the box sides and surprise yet again more rust?? so now i'm up to the boz having holes in it, tailgate being toast, and inner box sides being rusted out pretty good?? yet the cab has nothing?? how should i go about repairing this in the best and most cheap way to do it?? I will be boxlining the interior then custom carpeting everything

Hey Mudhucker
I had the same problem with my 68GMC, what startted out as a quick spash of paint ended up being a week long job, Inside the cab was the worse (replaced floorboards, cab corners, rocker panels, fenders, patched box, replaced door....) My wife was impressed, here I was on holidays for a week and all I did was work on my truck!

Glad she thinks that its better to have me in the shop playing with my truck then in the bars playing with.....

anyways good luck
later

I have heard good things about a product called POR 15. Its a product that you paint on thickly over affected areas and it further protects the area from rusting. It goes on much thicker than paint and is similar to spray in boxliner material.

Just FYI

I'm not even attempting to fix the rust on my Blazer. I swear most of its bondo anyways. the guy before tried a ductape, and then bondo later. I've been cracking it off the back right fender like crazy lately. I'm gunna have to do a crazy fender cutting job. My floorpan seems to be relatively nice. Theres some holes by the rocker pannels, but I just put some folded paper bags over them and they keep the cold air out. But then again I didn't buy my K5 for the body.
I don't see much point fixin something I'm just gunna dent off road anyways.

sounds alot cheaper?? that's the only reason i'm carpeting it, then you won't see the patches through the bedliner

I took an angle grinder to the back of my blazer which was rusting and bought a big can of Tremclad. I wanted to get a nice coat down before i put on a bedliner. THe back looks pretty nice now. I have some under body rust I'll probably cut out and just JBWeld some sheet metal or something in.

If you guys are looking for body parts, check out JKL Automotive in Maply Ridge. They're a chevy truck/blazer/burban graveyard, i think they get most of em from icbc.

Anyways, good luck
