storage drawers on 345

The good old canadian salted roads have RUSTED the storage drawers very badly. The battery drawer is very bad. Anyone have some good ideas on how to repair or replace them?

I sure would appreciate some HELP !!!

Rusted as in holes through them? If not they can be sandblasted and painted or undercoated. If they have holes through them they will need to be replaced or repaired. If you can't weld try a welding or truck repair shop. Any good shop can duplicate or repair them.

There is a product which is much thought of in the auto restoration world called Por-15. See their website at http://www.por15.com/ .

It seems to take comparatively little to cover a large area, so even though the cost per quart is high, a quart will do a lot. Note that it does not hold up to UV rays, so if it the finished product will be in direct sunlight you must use a regular metal paint over the Por-15. Battery trays, being under cover, would not need this extra step.

Obviously, this is not going to help if the metal is structurally compromised.
