My 2012 F-150 has holes rusted into the body just below the doors. I notice 2 years ago that the paint was bubbling on the step below the door, and I would sand, prime and repaint it. But now those spots are eating outward from the inside and there are full holes!
I also notice a lot of rust on the frame, tailgate hinges, etc. It’s way too expensive to buy a new truck so does it make sense to have someone strip down the frame and rusting areas and treat/repaint? How do I know I’m not getting screwed with just a cheesy paint job?
