Hi everyone I just joined I also bought a 2002 Wagon to use as a service car in my area. I hope my 1st post helps a few with a cheap fix
I bought a 2002 wagon with rusty rocker panels one side has 1-hole and the other side has 2 holes bottom line it looks bad. The rest of the car is solid.
This is my redneck fix I went to home depot and I bought 2 plastic trim pieces, they would have been perfect if they were 4-inches wide these were only 3-inches. I have to prep the rust rockers and paint them silver (this is the colour of the car. Next I will cut the plastic trim to size paint them semi-black and mount them covering the holes.
I will post pictures when finished before and after Total cost $30.
I like using the rust paint Rust-Tolium covers nice and it's easy to paint over.
