How bad are they and can they be repaired.

If its surface rust and they are not penetrated, merely thinner they I would suggest the following:


Get some Bilt Hamber products as they are British and work.

Deox gel, apply this thickly over the rust and build up to around 3mm thick and cover with cling film and leave overnight, wash off with a scrubbing brush and water with a little car shampoo in it, avoid washing up liquid as it is high in salt.
get 1 litre of their epoxy primer and a small pot of rust convertor, paint the rust convertor over the stripped areas and put this on very thinly and let it dry, apply another coat and let this dry.

Mix a small amount of the expoy primer and prime the entire outside of the sill and let it dry, apply a further coat and let this dry and you can wet flat and put a couple if colour coats over this.

For the insides of the sill you thoroughly degrease it using BH degreaser and let it work, wash it out with a hose or jetwash and let it dry, get a two cans of BH Dynax S 50 and you get the lance free with every 2 cans you buy, insert the lance through the grommet holes and apply the S 50 to the insides of the sill, this self heals and is applied as a mist and is attracted to the bare metal and costs it and you may find it may need a second coat.

You can do both sills and have them like new.

hi its onlly the rear part of them on both sides about ten inches each side
right at the back closest to the wheels is the worst part it hasnt gone through yet but dont think it will too long before theres a hole in it ive already cleaned it and applied some rust treatment the rest of the sill looks ok just surface and seem pretty solid i did expect to have to do some work on it underneath the good news is the chassis is solid pretty good for a nearly 30 year truck the body work is perfect with no rust at all overall im pretty happy with it thanks for the advise assassin ill give that a try ill keep you posted cheers

If it needs welding Andy I would make a decision and do this first and ideally welding the rear section with a repair panel is easily done and once done it can be treated and last for years.
