Default Rocker Rust

For those of you who had your rear rocker rust fixed professionally, how much did you pay?

I just want to know if the quote I got was high, low, or about right.

My rocker rust is extreme to the max. On both sides.



And I'm not doing it myself.... so don't tell me to whip out the rotary.

Well for the rear rocker panel, I paid $300 to have it fixed on my car, but it wasn't that bad.

Yes, but as I said, it was really light. And about 6 years ago.

Well that at least gives me an idea...

All I want is the rust cut out, and the metal primed. I'm just going to re-do the black rub strip with undercoating.

There is also a bit on the fender lip, but I'm going with flares so that takes care of that problem.

Nice, doesn't seem to be as bad as I thought it would...
