Hey everybody,

I have a 2004 Beetle Convertible that has been living in the Canadian rust belt for its whole life. It doesn't get driven much during the winter as I have an old Golf winter beater and its been rust proofed since I got it, but that wasn't enough. My driverside rocker panel is rotted out underneath with holes in certain spots and soft spots in others. My passenger rocker is beginning to get some soft spots and will look like the driverside in a year or two. Has anybody successfully gotten this fixed at a body shop either the dealership or other?

Thanks

I live in wisconsin and we put down alot of salt and my beetle is a 2000 and it had one hole so i ground it down to bare metal and from there i sprayed expanding foam let it expand then shaved it off with a knife then spread some spot puddy over it and sanded it down it worked good now i dont have a hole but still not painted
