(Pics) Need input on dealing with rust on both rear right quarter panels
So, I picked up my truck here about two weeks ago and I thought my wife and I did a good look over but apparently not. I had the dealer do some touch up paint on the driver's side door and the body shop guy told me to take a look at the under part of the rear right quarter panels where rocks hit. To my surprise my passenger side by the tail pipe has surface rust, the driver side almost looks like it was rubbed.
Either way, my plan is to take it to a shop and have them paint match rhino / line-x etc and have them spray it. My thoughts are to come up the lip where ever the bad ends (roughly 3-6" up) and do a straight line across and spray it. Identical on both sides. I really don't want to do a full spray job around the truck as I like the look of the truck stock, but I have been told by multiple body shops up here than any trucks near the ocean get the salt on it and it rust's fast and that spraying it after they get the surface rust off will pretty much seal it from happening again. Anyhow, think it would hide nicely? The picture's a bit back show that it hasn't made it's way up on the vertical side of the quarter panel, but seems to be on the horizontal part underneath mainly.
Here's a few pictures. Drivers Side Passenger Side
