Yeah, the plan is to cut out the area, asses the damage from there, and probably patch in a piece of steel, smooth it, and then prime it for paint.
I *may* try riveting on a panel on both sides, so the repair would match, and going with custom tail lights etc.

The rust is DEFINITELY caused by the lights right above it leaving ridiculously. The design of the seal is piss-poor, and they're old and never got any attention.
The only other rust is under the WC lift side door.





The white residue is from me spraying ospho on it for the hell of it.
I'd almost rather shop around for a minty door at a junkyard or something than try and fix that weird lip that hold the rubber. IDK, maybe I'm just feeling lazy. I'm sure I'll try and figure out some way of repairing it.

It's always good to see those FL safety shoes.

I bet you could patch the rear corner with aftermarket aluminum tread plate corners.
Made for Jeeps.

I love em. I'm probably on my 20th pair since I started wearing birkenstock in 1993.

Same here during the summer. I'd loose some toes during the winters.

Since moving out of the valley I've had to start wearing long pants and actual shoes.
