Paint, detailing, body work section.

I know each truck generation has a exterior area , I think it would be nice to have a section like suspension does to have a over all paint, detailing , bodywork section that would cover all the years of trucks. Just my 2 cents?

I've done body work my whole life, and worked in a dealership doing mostly body work for 4 years. Most of my experience is with Dupont and 3m products, but I've done everything from collision repair to fixing up older stuff. I'd be happy to answer any questions that I can.

I`ve got the front door rot on both sides, down at the bottom , looks like it started because of the weather striping and now the outside paint is starting to bubble. I don`t have any pictures, right now. Whats they best thing to do to fix this problem? Thanks for your HELP!! This is why we should have a section for this , if I were to post this only in the generation of my truck , I may or may not get very many responds. Thanks!!!!!

I have a small sand blaster that I cleaned them up with first. That's the most important part. Then sprayed a good self etching primer over the bare metal and used seam sealer on the bottom seam of the door. That seemed to hold the rust off the best. It's fairly easy to blend the new paint without painting the whole inside of the door. If it's gone around to the outside you'll have to have the doors painted. I could give you a better idea with pics though.
