Help with Rust



Hi everyone! I have noticed a rust problem on my recently acquired is300 Sportcross. I have attached pictures. I believe it's on the rocker panel?? driver side rear next to the tire well.

How should I go about taking car of this rust problem?

Hey man! I've got the same problem on my IS300 Sedan, it's a common design flaw where water gets in and gets trapped. I attempted to fix the problem by myself only to find the rust coming back. Look like it's rusting from the inside out. Best bet would be to cut it out and to weld new metal. I'm bringing my car to the shop tomorrow to see what they'll say about it. You can either fix it yourself if you have the necessary tools, or bring it to a shop. Hopefully you find a good solution!
