Thanks everyone for your feedback!!! As suggested, I did more inquiry on the rockers. The body shop owner admitted that he had not inspected the driver side rocker, so the bill for the rust repair could go up substantially depending on what he found. I am reasonably sure both are rusted out, since the passenger side is totally gone. Would not have known to ask about that had I not received your invaluable feedback. Thanks again. You all saved me from what could have been a nightmare. Sure this guy would have really soaked me after repairs were underway and it was too late to turn back.
