What do i do about rust in the drip rail. The rear of the left drip rail (anout 4-5") and the front of the right drip rail (4-5") is rusted, not all the way through though. What can I do, are there replacements...

This is just a guess; grind out the bad stuff and fill with a seam sealer...

I had the front ends of my drip rails cut out completely and replaced with patches. The shapes are not that difficult to make.
