That seems an unusual spot, but an easy fix. You really have very little to fix in the way of rust on that truck. I would be thrilled if I were you.
Thanks man, I plan on getting some ospho and spraying the inside of the rocker boxes and the back of everything I can to stop what's there from getting worse. Then I will dive into metal work to get rid of all the cancer. My short term plan is to just use that brown primer for now to blend it and seal it up but I will eventually repaint below the trim and the hood. I'm not in a huge rush tho, too busy putting miles on it

Re: 1972 GMC Jimmy PENNY

Got my steelies mounted today, I wasn't sure about white v black letters but I think I made the right choice. Definitely made a huge difference in the look of the truck, took her for an 80 mile cruise up on the parkway to end the day

I am jealous, thanks for sharing. I am hoping to ascend Mt. Mitchell with mine someday if I can ever get it out of restoration prison.

Re: 1972 GMC Jimmy PENNY

Wow - looks really good! Looking for a set of white steelies or some period correct aluminum slots for mine. What tire size did you end up going with?
