    Chip away the rust bubbling under the paint to reveal the extent of the issue. Removal of the part could make it easier to sand off the rust, prime and rattle can the area. But I would make a repair attempt after protecting surrounding areas with painters tape. IMO the area is not super crucial to have a perfect paint match as it's partially covered by the light bracket(s).

    After cleaning it up, if you are still worried about a color match, you can paint from the top of the bracket to the bottom of that panel (top of the lower fender. Do both sides and it will blend in a bit better.

    Good luck, rust is never fun and the main reason I sold my 4Runner.

    You won't know until you get the part off. There is good advice above. A paint shop could match the repaired part or replacement part. Or any of the above choices is good. IMO I would replace both sides just to match. You will just have to way the cost and your time. Good luck

    My first vehicle was an 88 dodge Dakota reg cab short bed 4x4. The floor board was rusted out as well. I just left the floor mats over the hole till one day my buddy (who weighed in at 275 pounds) got in it and stepped all the way thru the passenger side of it... I don't think I ever laughed so hard in my life.
