Cut the rusted areas out and weld in new metal if you want it to last.

I agree. The proper repair is to make and install patch panels. Like these.

Mikey...I understand that you probably dont have the equipment to do the patch panel thing. You can rent a mig welder, or hire someone to weld them in for you.I have had friens take their fender off and bring them over to me to weld in a patch panel.

Even if you pop rivet the patches in and then fibreglass them, it is better than just fibreglass.........
