Educate me on rust repairs

I sent out for a few estimates or general ideas of what some rust repair may cost on my truck. I wanted to have it repaired without bondo which may be the wrong way to go about it.

Only one place has responded so far but estimated 30k for sheet metal work. That’s a bit rich for me so I’m wondering what my other options are other than let if rust away and replace the cab/bed down the line with a part truck with less rust. See the pics for reference.


I eventually plan for a full restoration new but the majority of that work is still about two years and just dont want it to completely rot away in that time.


Anyone have experience with rust repairs like this and is using bondo that bad or can it be done? Is it worth repairing or just sourcing parts in better condition?

And a pic of it from a better angle for your time.
