Your opinions on some rust.
I have some rust I'd like some opinions on. Most is just surface rust, but some is in some bad spots.
The first two pics are of the rear top shock perches. I found them beginning to delaminate and show serious rust, although I don't know how severe it really is. Worst case I replace the perches I guess. I assume any parts store can order them or is there a better place?
The third is the front shackle mount for the rear leaf. It was also delaminating. Doesn't seem as severe as the perch, but also easily replaced, I think.
The next is the bottom of the driver's side door under the weather seal. Seems like surface rust. I'm thinking I can just take some sand paper to the rust and then paint over it.
The last is a bubble of rust coming up under the paint on the rear left passenger door. Again, I think I can just bust away the rust and paint over.
Other than the last two the body is completely rust free. The frame has some rust, but I'm pretty sure most, if not all is surface rust. The suspension mount have me concerned. What do you guys think? This is the first time I've delt with rust. I'm from the south and got this truck from up north, so.

Can't take credit for the current build, bought it like it is, but looking to take it further in the future.
