D@ng Ford doors and rust at the bottom...

I love my Ford trucks but have they ever made one that the bottom edge of the door does not rust out in less than 7 years ( for those that live in snowy areas).
Seriously...I have cars older than 10 years that have almost no rust and my 2006 F350 is getting bad.

Anyway...what has been anyones experience with some of the rust inhibitors. yah I know once it starts it is cancer and will over time take the bottom edges but until then I will fight the good fight. Plus the truck will not see another winter after this one as we are snowbirding next year.

So...any input...they are not rusted through but that stupid rolled over seam at the botton=m is getting rusty on both front doors. The crew cab is fine.

I have the same problem with my 05 psd, every year I take the molding off and take a drill with a wire wheel to that area. I then primer and paint the area and it's good for another year. I wish I could find a more perm inner solution.

Yah...battled it on my 98 F150 for years until the door edges finally separated and started flapping in the breeze.

I will try several of the rust convertors and epoxy stuff but I think that it start from the inside of the seam maybe.

If you could seal it so that water did not migrate in there by using one of the higher end rust products you would get a handle on it but again I don't think it is just coming from water and salt splashing up from the bottom?

I cleaned mine up, neutrailized it, then painted it with herculiner. its those damn weather strips, dirt, water, and salt gets stuck behind them and just eats away at the doors.

Kind of what I was thinking...and a similar approach....neutralize it then seal it with a liner.

Gotta do something or in 3-5 years these will be flapping in the breeze too...

My 04 is in getting door bottoms and rear fender wells taken care of right now. Sand blasting, sealing, paint and clear. $500 hope it lasts more than a year.

Guys, take a look at something called Fluid Film. This stuff is amazing. It is a spray like* WD40 except this stuff lasts way longer. It comes in a spray can, and it will shield water and debris. I suggest undercoating entire bottom of truck with this stuff and doing the bottoms of the doors before winter.. - Mike
