I also could use an idea on how much paint I would need to repair it? Would a pint work? And how much do you think it would cost?

Wow man, that's a bit of rust and rot... Sorry but it's well past my ability... Hopefully someone else will chime in soon... As for paint I would go with spray paint primer first....

Well I was going to suggest krylons new formulated Rust Prevention spray.. I'm very surprise at how well this stuff has been working for me.. But in your case.. you seem to have a bit more involved.. Thou I have seen guys/gals take body armor and simply cover it up.. Your looking at new body parts..(if the rust is all the way through) is not surface preparations is required.. sanding or even acid dipping, priming and then several coats of pain or just leave it primed.. again just depends on which direction your planing on going.. cheapest or all out restoration.

DO NOT USE BONDO

I plan on cutting it out and welding in a new piece of sheet metal, im thinking 20 gauge. I have all the tools for it just need to get it done, need to do it soon because the sheet metal that the drivers seat belt is supposed to be bolted to is completely rusted out... I don't think it will be too hard.. but knock on wood. Then ill prime it and wait on the paint for a week or so because my wallet will be broken. Lol

True.. If anyone has a metal shop and a few scraps about.. It should be to hard.. I've even seen them go from spot welding to rivets.. just to replace those areas.. Thou according to your words.. I have a feeling you'll put a bit more time and effort into this project and still drive it around while your doing the work.

underneath

Have you crawled underneath and really looked it over. There are a lot of places for hidden rust if you haven't. Need to know all that you need to fix before you start.
