Default rocker panel rot, wont pass inspection

My crx wont pass inspection because of rocker panel rot. The guy tells me the frame has rot on it also. Has anybody else had this problem? I know I can buy new rocker panels.

Your CRX has come to the end of its lifespan, unless you want to spend a lot of money repairing the rust properly.

Hey guys after a better inspection last night, I saw that thier is a 2x6 inch hole in the subfame under the driver side door. It looks like that is the only frame rot. Do you guys think its worth repairing? Like a idiot I redid the whole suspention and did not have the car hih enought to notice the rot. You can see the floor pan witch looks in good shape.

just weld in a patch and paint it black, done.

some places even let it go w/ sheet metal and rivts if it's not a structual spot.

or you can get it properly fixed, like i did. .see below (it saved my **** that my uncle did all the work since he's in the profession).
