On my 2000, when I open my rear hatch, I can see some bubbling action right below the cargo bed, right above the bumper. Now, how intricate is this piece, and how much do you think it would run me to get it fixed, I don't have a welder at home, so I'm going to have to rely on the expertise of a bodyshop to fix this.

Rust never sleeps - December and January are the best months of the year to approach a body shop for an reasonable estimate as they are sloooooooowwwwww due to people being tapped out for Christmas, and then Christmas bills...
