Frame (near step) Repair

Hey guys. I have been searching for some images to use as references to repair my frame. I believe 1/2 of the front facing side, along with bottom is going to need to be cut out. I can't really tell if any of the autorust patches fully repair that area, it appears that it is in between two of them. Picture of the area is below. Any tips appreciated!

EDIT: and by references, I am really looking for pics/tips of someone who has self repaired this area before

the way that chassis looks is if it was repainted over rust. If it were me i would sit down with a grinder, wire bursh, etc and clean that chassis all over then patch any bad spots, and prime then paint with a good rust paint. In the picture it doesnt look too rotted out, did you hit it with a hammer? did it start to break through? use a grinder and clean it up and see what you got to work with.
Always the one with the most carnage, most stuck
