I was getting tired of looking at the rusty bubbling fuel filler on my Ranger so I removed it (two bolts) for repair. I’m glad I didn’t wait any longer since it was barely salvageable. As I get more and more body work experience small jobs like this are really easy to me now. See pics and captions below for details.

Removed and sandblasted so I know where to cut to get all the rot out.

Painted with plasticote paint from autozone. Since the Ranger is a 1998 they had the correct paint in a rattle can which will do just fine for this truck. Now I just need to bolt it back on the truck once the paint cures.
