    I would think that the hardest part would be to color match the paint.

    Not as concerned about this. The reason is that side of the car was backed into by my neighbor's daughter. Instead getting doors replaced/re-painted and costing her $$$, I asked my friend at the body shop to bang out the dents the best he could and make sure it does not rust. Also the color of the car is gray. I do have small areas of "primer gray" on that side of the car already that you can only see when you get close to the car.

    The rust spot really, really sticks out. the car drives pretty good (175,000 miles) but I am also realistic about its value. fixing this spot is more for my personal ego than anything else.

    The fact that in more than seven years there are only 65 comments regarding rust strongly suggests that the industry has eliminated this problem.

    That's probably because the Tundra and Tacoma owners who are suffering from rusted frames enduring another Toyota recall don't know about this topic.

    Seems some of those Tundras are dropping their spares due to this rust.
