I'd cut out that rocker panel until you stopped seeing rust and then I'd weld in a new piece. Possibly completely replacing the rocker panel.

This is better left to a body shop. As for price I'm not sure, you Americans get way better prices.

well im from Canada, but my neighbor is a mechanic, and thats what he was saying to, cut it out kinda, put in a piece behind the rocker and bolt it, then sand it real nice then bonbo it, then add the correct colour, but hey if i get a body kit would i have to do that? because those rockers get removed if you add that correct?
