Gas Door Rust

1901 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ridged
I have a lit of rust that has formed under my gas access door for a second time now. The auto body shop said the metal is too far gone to sand it down and repaint it. What can be done to fix this area and keep it from rusting yet again? I live in northern Michigan, where the roads are salted, so it's very rough on the vehicles. One other body shop quoted $400 to fix it, as they said they needed to blend the paint!!! Ouch!!!

It's not the door itself, but the body of the truck underneath the gas cap door. I'll post a pic tomorrow. Thanks!
It is nigh impossible to properly repair that area with the hope of the rust not returning. It would most likely require new sheet metal and that would be very expensive.
