SOURCE: Focus - rusted rocker panels
this is a very costly repair. I would get estimates for repair before the area gets to bad. After repair have the car undercoated and the panels sealed on the inside.

SOURCE: cant stop rust on rocker panels
If someone could solve this problem forever they would become instant millionaires!!! (it is an ongoing problem with just about every vehicle forever (road salt and pitting from stuff that gets kicked up by tires, does not care what kind of vehicle it is) I generally use a product called rust killer. Just follow instructions on container. I have a Jeep (noted for rust there) I use rust killer, then cover the entire rocker with fiberglass, then spray the entire thing with bedliner coating. (if you need to match paint on car, just re-spray over it with correct colour)
The biggest problem is that the rust you see is not all the rust that's there...it actually begins inside the panel where you can't get to ...that's why it bleeds rust stain through the paint before holes appear.
Good luck! Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I have a rust spot on the rocker
There are panels available from several manufacturers, no matter who makes it, it will require welding to install. Ford will definately make the part you need but it will be relatively expensive, if you want an aftermarket part just google "rust repair panels"
When we fix small rust spots we usually fabricate replacement parts out of 22 ga steel.
