The rust is eating away at the metal....the best repair will be to cut out that rust and weld in new panels.

This is probably the route I'm going to go as it will repair the rust and act like rock sliders

Cut it out and welded in new steel, body filler, sanded it all smooth, primed and painted it.

If you have the budget have it body repaired. For tight budget apply some turco rust converter and seal it with a primer paint.

both sides are already done and the rust converter wouldn't have done anything as you can see from the pictures it was completely rotted. The repairs have held up perfectly so far
