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?

ya i mean. i like the orange and the inside has orange also, so id like to stick with orange, maybe not the factory orange, but my dad that lives in Saskatchewan is a painter for LOTS of year, so if i drive out there sometime he could probably hook me up with a wicked deal!

Keep it orange and maybe some wicked painted graphics on the side.

That is just surface rust from the ding you put into it. Hammer to top part back into place, wire brush the hell out of it and seal it. Then if your fussy you can pull the dent or if not just bondo the ding sand down evenly prime and paint. For such a small spot I would just go to Sherwin Williams and get a spray bomb of color match paint.

After zooming in and putting my glasses on I realize the hole there. Yah you will need to cut a piece out and weld a patch. But any sheet metal guy can help you out with that.

You can buy these rocker panels for $40 a piece from an aftermarket body parts supplier. Probody is who I normally use
