My .02 is to cut out the rust and atleast use duraglass to fill in. I am not familier with this foam you are talking. As for the color a real dark grey almost black but not.:nod:

I think it would look good silver. I would take time to do it the right way though and take care of the rust. A few years from now you might have wished you did it right.

its just a spray foam......you spray it in and it gets huge real fast so it fills in holes then you just take sand paper and form it........looks good as new.....the type we used on the other truck was RightStuff filler..........i love rightstuff......i use thier sylicone for intake gaskets on cars..........

the other truck had it done atleast 5 years ago and its one of the most solid parts on the truck.....it works great.......we've done it.....i forgot till i was lookin for a tractor earlier we used it to patch a hole in my buddies dads IH Magnum tractor when my buddy his a tree.......his dad didnt even know until we told..........looks good and holds up better then bondo......

You should cut it out and replace it and do it the right away... We only spent 40 hours on my truck from day 1 to being painted and we cut out both cab corners and custom made new ones and welded, fiberglassed, and bondo'd them in. But we fixed every little dent, debadged the whole truck and welded up alignment holes, and a bunch of other little things. Trust me, spend the extra time now than regret it later.
