Default Rust on sill and door

Hi, just bought my daughter a 107(2006) sadly didn't notice rust on the sill on the passenger side , mainly underneath, just lipping around the side. There is also a thin band of bubbles along the bottom of the door. I took it to a body shop who say it's been badly repaired at some point, thus causing these issues. Wondered the best way to try and deal with myself to prevent it getting worse. I was thinking of rubbing down the sill and treating with rust agent, then spraying with a stone chip shield ? Not sure about tackling the door as some bubbles are going up the hinge side edge.....any advise , techniques, products etc to use would be appreciated...thanks for reading 😄

I wouldn't worry to much about the door for now as that is an easy to replace bolt on panel.
If worse comes to worse you just keep an eye on Ebay / cars breaking as a suitable door in the correct colour will pop up sooner or later, a bit of rust on a door doesn't stop a car working or worry the mot tester.

How visible is the rust on the sill if your standing looking towards that side of the car?

Any chance of a picture?

If the car is a keeper - it might be an idea to get some cavity wax in there once the repair has been carried out to protect it in the future.

Last time I looked under one of theses there was an overkill of rubber bungs along the bottom edge of the sills so getting cavity wax in to the sills shouldn't be difficult.
