Do you have any deco trim on the rockers? If so, take it off and look underneath it. Rust is like an iceberg; 90% of it one can't see right away. Given the images you've posted I recommend you probe some more. Look up inside the rear wheel arches just behind the rear door posts, check the front fenders at the joints to the trunk and where the front fenders connect to the fins projecting from the body in front of the doors. Check the bottoms of the doors. Recalling poor repair jobs; I have seen a '72T where the gas tank support was repaired with sheet metal pop riveted into place. Good luck, Jim
