There are a few good rust converters out there, one of my favorite's is Extend it is made by permatex and works great. It might be worth shooting on before things go too far south as you decide how much to go after it.

Just a thought.

I was also concerned about the rust spots around my windshield. There were chips where the rubber met the metal and I suspected it went deeper. I also needed a new windshield and my State Farm policy is good for one no-deductible windshield replacement each year. So, I scheduled the repair - which was to use OEM glass and new rubber - and then about a week before started to trim away the rubber and see how bad the rust was. My plan was to then remove the rust with a 3M rust/paint removal wheel and prime. I found that the rust did not actually extend under the rubber. So, I was able to clean, and then apply a few coats of a rust inhibiting clean metal primer. I got Toyota touch up paint to finish it. Not a professional job but will give me a few years on the rust.

It sounds like getting someone in there that knows what they are doing and getting it all would be my best best. Any recomendations on cheap but good bodyshops in Denver?

Would have said Bill's guy up at CIM, but they seemed to have closed.

I had a good experience with Matrix Auto Body, just south of Evans on Jason St. (near the Air Care Colorado). Rich Deavers was my referred contact. But the job was small and my truck is Toyota White. So I can't really comment beyond a nice job yanking a few dents and matching a color that hasn't changed in 40 years.

My 80 had the cancer showing from under the windshield rubber. I pulled the glass and there were multiple spots of rust around the parameter. The worst was under the cowl and required sandblasting to get all of it out. Sanding is not effective as it just grazes the top and doesn't get into the craters. If you sanded that deep you wouldn't have any metal left. I put a light film of body filler over the treated spots and went to town with the paint.
