I would get 1 sheet and cut/bend it to do the WHOLE underside of the cab. Take the cab right off and put it on its side and have at it. Take off all the cancer and clean it up really well.
I'm in the process of doing a major ' de-rustification ' myself along with a lot of bodywork.
In the end, its worth it as while going over everything, you find future problems BEFORE they become a real problem that will cost more to fix later. Its also easier to work on things with less in the way.
A piece of stainless to do the whole bottom of your cab shouldn't be more then 100$
