How to fix body rust?

Well my truck has some rust on the rear wheel wells. I have those chrome trim pieces on it which probaly caused the rust. I really noticed it the other day when pressure washing that area.

how does one fix it?

The rust goes right into the 2 tone paint.

If you have rust on areas where you can see it over the chrome trim you probably wont like whats under the trim. When I was doing my body work I couldnt see any rust until I pulled off the chrome trim and it was completely rotted through, so I cut out the area and welded in a new panel

The ONLY way to fix rust is to remove it. This here is a good excuse for cutout fender flares, just need to get some big ole tires so they're worth it lol!

Hmmm. Like I said, with big tires/wheels i bet it would. Maybe a lift. Dunno how much money you want to work with it. If its in the rear you could probably get new bedsides put on and painted but that'll cost just as much as sick wheels/tires
